Question about GE Profile PSW26P Stainless Steel Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Water leaking When I get water from the door dispenser, water leaks out from somewhere inside the refrigerator section. Took all the drawers out and can't figure out how to get the plastic cover off of the section where the water is coming from.

    Our GE Profile has a similar problem.

    I've had a look around the filtered water/ice cube outlet and it seems to me that in my case at least that it's only condensation on the external surface of the little flap that seals the aperture from which the ice comes out of the freezer compartment. There's so much condensation that drops eventually form and run down the ouside of the door.

    I'm not sure what the solution is. The 'leak' is quite intermittent, sometimes it's a solid drip, other times it's like there's no problem.

Why do I get blobs of water on the inside of my salad drawer in my Fridgemaster. Fridge/Freezer


Leaking Refrigerators
Leaking Refrigerators
I hear a lot of complaints from people that see water leaking into their refrigerator from seemingly nowhere. Water appears in different places and even inside or under a refrigerators that does not have a water or a ice dispenser! Frost free refrigerators defrost the ice that collects on the evaporator coil on the average of about every 8 hours so the water that accumulates during defrost has to go somewhere right?

it could be that u have a leak.. sometimes this happens when to much water is delivered to the ice tray and it overflows a little leaking into fridge. if that is happening then u most likely have a problem with the water inlet valve at the back of fridge, u can buy the part on line at appliancepros.com. good luck

Frigidaire refrigerator water filter area leaking


There has to be a loose or disconnected water line. Check the water dispenser inside the door and behind the door and then go from there.

Your model must also have an evaporator on the top section because if the fresh food section deli has water below the trays you either have a door seal leak allowing moisture in or the fresh food section evaporator drain is also blocked. I really think your defrost drain is blocked and now everytime your refrigerator goes into defrost the condensate remains inside your refrigerator.

A 2 to 21/2 year old Samsung bottom mount freezer RB217ABPN purchased from Costco. Water is starting to collect under the crisper drawers in the fridge section. This is the third time in a couple of months...


You have a leaking water tank behind the crisper drawer. You will need to get back there to determine if the tank is leaking or the water connection is leaking. This will only leak if you close the door and dispense water from the dispenser.

Water if leaking inside the refrigerator -- in the drawers and under the drawers and on the shelves! Please help!!


Probably a plugged drain in the freezer compartment. Open it up and investigate. You may need a hair dryer to thaw it out. Hope this helps!

Leak


It leaks Water can leak from these areas:

The bottom front of the refrigerator or freezer door
The back of the refrigerator
The inside ceiling of the refrigerator
The inside back wall of the refrigerator
Underneath the front of the refrigerator
The bottom front of the refrigerator or freezer door Self-defrosting refrigerators usually dispose of the water generated during the defrost cycle via a tube or channel that directs the water to a pan at the bottom of the refrigerator. From the pan, the water normally evaporates. (See a more detailed explanation of this in the How Things Work section of our website).

If the tube or channel is clogged or obstructed, the water backs up and leaks into the inside of the refrigerator compartment. Then the water builds up at the bottom, inside of the refrigerator. When the water has built up for a time it may spill out of the front of the door opening. To fix this problem, clear the drain tube or channel and allow the defrost water to flow down to the drain pan. 

In some refrigerators, the defrost water is intentionally directed down the back wall of the refrigerator, where it then flows to the bottom of the refrigerator compartment and out to a small drain--usually located beneath one of the drawers at the bottom of the refrigerator. If the drain becomes clogged or blocked, the water may back up. To fix this problem, clear the obstruction. 

Another cause may be the following. The refrigerator may have doorframe heaters to evaporate any condensation on the cabinet frame. If your refrigerator is equipped with a switch inside that says “energy saver” or something similar, while running in that mode the door heaters are disabled. Turn the switch to the opposite setting and wait 24 hours. If the condensation disappears the problem is solved.

The back of the refrigerator Water coming from the back of the refrigerator usually comes from either the ice maker water valve or line (if there is an ice maker), or from the defrost drain pan. 

Here's what to do:

  • If the water is coming from the ice maker water valve, check to make sure the water tubes are attached properly and are fastened tightly.


  • If the water seems to be coming from any part of the valve itself, replace the valve.


  • If the water appears to be coming from the defrost drain pan, inspect for holes or cracks, and replace the pan if necessary.


The inside ceiling of the refrigerator Water accumulating on the ceiling of the refrigerator is usually caused by a clogged drain in the freezer section beneath the evaporator. The clogged drain will cause water from the self defrost cycle to leak into the divider between the freezer and refrigerator. This water may then freeze and cause condensation build-up on the refrigerator ceiling. The solution to this problem begins with unclogging the drain. It may also be necessary to remove the entire freezer/refrigerator divider to thoroughly dry the insulation in the divider. Occasionally the insulation needs to be replaced to prevent a recurrence of the problem. This can be a big job – you may want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician.

The inside back wall of the refrigerator In some refrigerators, the water from the defrost cycle is intentionally directed down the back wall of the refrigerator, where it then flows to the bottom of the refrigerator compartment and out to a small drain - usually located beneath one of the drawers at the bottom of the refrigerator. If the drain becomes clogged or blocked, the water may back up. To fix this problem, clear the obstruction. 

Underneath the front of the refrigerator If the refrigerator is equipped with a water dispenser on the freezer door, check if the water line to the dispenser is leaking. Also, check the drip pan to be sure it isn’t out of place, broken or cracked.

My tenants informed me that water was showing up on the floor in front of the refrigerator. I checked the back where the evaporator tray is and it was dry. When i looked inside the refrigerator I notices water pooled inside, under the plastic bottom drawer. Anybody have any idea what i should do? thanks.

Water leaking from refrigerator...


You may have a small hole in the internal water pipe. Possibly from rubbing against the motor.
Take the end of the pipe comming from the back of the fridge (water inlet) and blow as hard as you can into it. If air passes through then you have a leak for sure.
Get a second set of hands to run along the pipe while you blow and you should be able to feel where the air is comming from.

Had this problem years ago with an Americana double door with ice dispenser.
