GE profile model 22 fridge keeps icing up

Had service call and tech indicated drain in bottom panel of freezer was clogged or iced. He could not clear ice. I have shut off for days and have shot air through drain indicating that the pipe is clear. Tech also changed the wire from the blue to red and indicated this would increase temperature and prevent ice up in drain. When turned back on, it icese up in approx 2 months.

Any ideas for the next move?

SOURCE: The diagnostics say there is nothing wrong with my dryer but...

I had the same problem and my dryer was 2 1/2 years old. I also thought the problem was with the blower motor. However, the blower motor checked out fine. It turned out to be the Main Circuit Board. This is covered in the 5 year manufacturers warranty. If you don't go through GE warranty, it will cost you $170-$200 plus labor. Our technician said this is the third unit he has seen that this has happened to. If you do use GE Warranty it will cost you about the same as the are proud of their labor rates. Here is the part: http://www.easyapplianceparts.com/Search_Detail.aspx?Inventory=959920&SourceCode=6 Good luck and I hope this helps!

SOURCE: GE PROFILE

It sounds like your drain hose is kinked or blocked, or maybe the pipe that the drain hose drains into is blocked. Somehow water is now being allowed to get out of the machine at the end of the cycle and is staying in the machine. Check those hoses and pipes.

SOURCE: GE DVLR223 Not Heating--Is there a reset?

There is no reset. What he did was probably replace the thermal fuse. Why did he not clean it out for ya? Anyway when the thermal fuse goes bad either the whole dryer or the heat won't work. If you can open the dryer up by removing the front panel, you can test your thermal fuse for continuity. If none replace it. While you have the front off undo your belt and remove the 3 screws that secure the rear of the drum (inside drum in middle at back) pull drum out and make sure heat element is not broken. Here is a site for your dryer check it out. www.repairclinic.com/Appliance-Parts?s=t-dvlr223-%3d%3d&z=100 Good Luck

Ice build up on bottom freezer


Ice build up on the freezer floor alone, with no ice on shelves or food above the floor, usually indicates a clogged defrost drain problem. when your unit goes into defrost, the melt water is intended to go down a drain tube from the freezer to a pan on the outside bottom of the unit, usually near the compressor. Sometimes these drains are clogged with food debris, other times some of the melt water does not completely drain, and freezes - this build up of ice can then clog the drain. You can unplug the fridge, with both doors open and a fan blowing for 24 hours to temporarily remove the ice and water, but it will return most likely, in which case you would need to have the drain cleared out and / or have a drain heater installed by a qualified refrigerator repair service.

I have a GE TOP Freezer Model # TBX21JABLRBB


Turn off the fridge. Remove the rear freezer panel inside the freezer. Take a hair dryer and thaw the ice in the drain trough at the rear of the freezer. After it is clear, pour a 1/4 cup of bleach into the drain hole. Adjust the front leveling legs on the fridge to make the fridge tilt slightly to the rear.

Water in bottom of fridge and in crisper drawers


the defrost drain in the freezer is clogged with ice.
empty the food from the freezer, and put through a defrost. you might have to help the fridge defrost with a hair dryer. you may also have to remove the rear panel (inside the freezer) or pending on the model to bottom panel of the freezer.. (usually held in by 1/4" hex screws.)
melt all the ice, and be sure that the drain is clear, and it should work.

Water leaking - GE Profile Refrigerator, Model: TPX21PRX


Check to see if the drain at the bottom of your freezer is plugged. When the refrigerator goes on defrost, the water has to go somewhere. Look below the coils in the freezer section and see if there is ice in the drain.

Clogged fridge drain tube


The drain is behind the back panel in the freezer at the bottom. Sounds like it is frozen over which is pretty common. Will need to remove panel and thaw out drain by running hot water down. You can use a putty knife to break up ice first. Make sure you get all ice around the drain above and below the thin aluminum tray at the bottom. After the drain is free don't be alarmed if you get some water on the floor because the drain pan may not hold all of the water you ran down the drain. Not anything you can do to prevent this on this model.
