I use compressed air, you can use canned air but might be difficult to force all the air down the tube. I have also used a steam gun which works great.
For the canned air you would need to close off the inlet side with a rag or something to allow all the air pressure down the tube to clear that tube out.
GE has a "S" shaped tube behind the unit by the compressor, this can get clogged from time to time. I would look there as well.
I hope this helps you, good luck.

Show a picture of the drain tube so I can access it with the back of the refrigerator off

There should be a tube, that leads to a defrost pan, under the box. Follow it up to the freezer. If the freezer is still freezing, you may never get it unclogged.

Why does my air conditioner leak water on passager side floor

The Evaporator box has a Drain tube, this is blocked and not letting the water drain off ,hence the build up of water in the box which will overflow into the passengers side .
The drain tube needs to be unblocked to let the water drain off.

Need help to unclog a drain on a GE Profile Bottom Freezer Refrigerator Model PFSS6PKW/PFSF6PKW. Specifically, where does the drain end? Behind the freezer & how to access it? Also found eroding t

You should be able to see where the drain tube comes out over the drain pan. Get some thin wire and run it down the tube and when it comes out in the drain pain, tie something onto it like a small piece of cloth and pull it back up through the drain tube to swab it out. The tape is no big issue, if you want to do something about the rust, there is a product that autoparts stores sell that turns rust into a hard, rigid metal. Or you can use a blow drier to make sure it is dried out and then spray rubber under coating on it.

How do I unclog defrost drain on a model TBX18W?

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 lower back of the freezer.
