SOURCE: 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.

Try unplugging it for 30 seconds and then plug it in again. It may reset itself that way.

This sounds like it is not defrosting, plus the drain may be clogged not letting the water drain. The drain clog will not block the fan, but not defrosting will.

Water is freezing in the bottom drawer GEProfile bottom drawer freezer and leaking water on floor

Sounds like your drain tube is blocked in the freezer for the defrost water. The drain tube is in the back left or right corner and will have a drain trough under the cooling coils tilting towards it. That trough will probably have ice built up all over it. Once the ice is out you may need to force hot water down the drain tube. I use to use a turkey baster with a rubber hose on it to force the hot water down the drain tube. Its clear when you put water in the trough top and it goes down the tube freely to the drain pan under the refrigerator.

I have a GE side by side model #tfx22jrba ww and it is leaking. It is wet under the left front corner. I took off the grill to see if I could find the drip pan and see if it was full but didn't see it. Any...

The evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.

Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the inside of the freezer at the bottom of the rear cover.

My refrigerator started leaking underneath on the right back side. Can you tell me what is wrong and what needs to be done?

If you have icemaker in your fridge - remove cover on the back and down and check the plastic water tubing for cracks and loose connections.
If nothing found or you don't have icemaker - there is a drain pan on the bottom, behind the same back cover. Check if it has any cracks or tilted. Check if the drain tube is routed to the drain pan and is securely attached to the drain port on the bottom of the fridge.

Water is pooling in the bottom of the refrigerator. this model does NOT have an automatic ice maker, nor is connected to any water source. model #frt18g4awo

This is usually caused by the drain tube being plugged. There is usually a collector tray mounted under the refrigerator near the compressor and a small drain tube that runs into the refrigerator. The tube will plug with slime and green mold over time. Without knowing the model or make I cannot tell you for sure where the tray is located. If you find the tray you should see a tube laying into or hanging above the tray and running up to the refrigerator. Clean this tube and the little drain hole in the refrigerator with a pipe cleaner or soft piece of wire. Also check your door seals as a bad seal will also cause excess moisture to form in refrigerator, and children constantly opening and closing will also cause excess moisture to form and if the drain is plugged it will build up in the bottom.
