Water leaking on floor from under Mod#TPH21PRS;TPH21PBS

Hi,I have water leaking on the floor under left side(freezer side)as your facing it.It is not a constant leak.I have not looked at it yet as I wanted some insight first as to what and where to begin looking.I do not have the ice maker hooked up to any water supply cause I dont use it.I am getting a puddle of water that seeps from under the fridge and was wondering what you think it could be from?I think everything seems to be working as far as the freezer is freezing and the fridge is cold.Thats about all I can tell so far.Thanks in advance for the help.

    same problem

  • nolechic Jul 25, 2008

    I have the same problem. I noticed a small amount of water dripping from the lower left corner of the water/ice dispenser console. I can't put my finger on exactly when it happens but its not all the time.

    I have a GE profile side by side refrigerator, that's approx 8-10 years old. It recently began accumulating water in the bottom of the freezer, then it would leak water out the front side of the freezer door. At first I thought it was the ice maker so I took it out, the leaking still happened, so then I disconnected the water source thinking that could be it, but it is still accumulating the water on the bottom and leaking out the front. Can you help

I you dont have any water hooked up for the ice maker or for water at the door, about the only thing left is your freezer drain. Look in the back under the freeser side and look for a drain... see where it drains.. over flowing? anyway water could get out from where in drains to?

Check rubber gasket around Freezer door it's probably hardened at bottom and probably not sealing properly allowing air (hot air from outside and heat from under refrigerator) to get in from beneath and causing condensation to build ice, than melt thusly occasional thawing and leakage.

I had a similar problem with my Whirlpool model 6ED25DQFW side by side refrigerator/freezer with ice maker/water dispenser. Water was slowly pooling under the refrigerator under the freezer section. The defrost drain pipe was not blocked, the condenser fan was running, the drip pan was not leaking.
The source of the leak was found to be the icemaker solenoid block plastic body which had a pinhole leak.
To fix requires either plastic welding, or replacement of the solenoid block plastic body.
To access the solenoid block firstly requires removal of the cardboard cover, located at the lower rear of the refrigerator.

There is a pan and drain hose under the freezer coil that is there to catch any water when the freezer goes into defrost. I feel strongly that is where you will find your leak.
I hope this helps.

Have a TFX26ZPDA that occassionally leaks from front freezer corner. notice of leak anywhere, but find water under the fridge on the floor (facing fridge left bottom)..........why is this


I would check the bottom of the freezer. If its a solid block of ice then you have a frozen drain line. You may have to remove the back panel to access the drain or on some models there is a gap there its located in the back. If you take a turnkey baster and fill it with hot water and keep shooting it down the drain line it should eventually thaw out. The water is coming from your evaporator coils when they defrost.

Hope this helps _MJ_

If you have an ice maker, check for a leak in the water line. If no ice maker, there could be a leak in the pan for the defrost water, or the drain hose is out of position. Also, check to see if the water is actually leaking out from the freezer door. That would indicate a clogged drain. The bottom inside the freezer may have water, or ice on it. If so, suspect the clogged drain.

Water leaking under freezer side


Hi, is the leak coming from the hinge on the freezer door? Do you have ice building up inside the freezer section?
Please let me know

More likely, the defrost system has failed.
There are three components: Defrost timer, a defrost heater, and a defrost bi-metal.
The timer can be located either in the food compartment, on the rear of the unit, or behind the kickplate. The heater and bi-metal are located behind the freezer rear wall (or freezer floor, depending on design). It's easiest to unplug the fridge overnight, with the freezer door open, to melt all the ice that has developed. PRIOR to doing all this, please ensure that there IS ice forming on the wall of floor of the freezer! Let me know. I hope this helps!

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.

This is probably the ice maker water feed becoming detached from the back of the appliance. This is a fault of a leaky watervalve or low pressure allowing water to drip into the feed pipe where it freezes building up until the pipe blocks where water pressure causes it to bacome detached. Change the water valve and refit the pipe ensure there are no airleaks into the freezer.
