Question about GE Refrigerators
I have a G.E. model TBX25RPK refrigerator/freezer. The icemaker appears to be leaking causing a large column of ice to form underneath the tray where the ice cubes are made. Any thoughts on what is causing the leak or how to make the determination? Is this a DYI repair or will I need a repair service?
Sometimes the drainage inlet for the defrost can get clogged and then the frost has no place to go (usually an evaporator pan at the base of the fridge) have you ever felt the side walls or within the fridge and it was warm? When it is working the tray heats to rid the fridge of the frost. The DYI solution is simple but can be frustrating. If the freezer is on top and you can remove the drip tray and the contents for that matter and see the inlet all the way in the back most likely covered in ice, turn of the fridge throw a bunch of towels togeter with sponges and buckets and le the fridge thaw out for the day sopping out all of the water. If you can get to the inlet squirk some hot water with a turkey baster down into the hole and listen for the flow out into the bottom into the tray. Take the back off of the fridge (or access panel at the botom) to see the evap tray. If it is totally dry and looks like it has been for a while then it hasn't been draining. Usually unless a waterline is leaking or broken ice formation is a faulty defrost, huge amounts of continuous water is a leaking suply line. The frustraing part of the DYI solution is if you don't get the blockage free from the line (usually a clear tubing that emties into the evaoprator tray) and put everything back together and restock the fridge about a week later it will start icing up again.
