SOURCE: Icemaker leaks into freezer compartment

Sometimes the drainage inlet for the defrost can get clogged and then the frost has no place to go (usually an evaporator pan at the base of the fridge) have you ever felt the side walls or within the fridge and it was warm? When it is working the tray heats to rid the fridge of the frost. The DYI solution is simple but can be frustrating. If the freezer is on top and you can remove the drip tray and the contents for that matter and see the inlet all the way in the back most likely covered in ice, turn of the fridge throw a bunch of towels togeter with sponges and buckets and le the fridge thaw out for the day sopping out all of the water. If you can get to the inlet squirk some hot water with a turkey baster down into the hole and listen for the flow out into the bottom into the tray. Take the back off of the fridge (or access panel at the botom) to see the evap tray. If it is totally dry and looks like it has been for a while then it hasn't been draining. Usually unless a waterline is leaking or broken ice formation is a faulty defrost, huge amounts of continuous water is a leaking suply line. The frustraing part of the DYI solution is if you don't get the blockage free from the line (usually a clear tubing that emties into the evaoprator tray) and put everything back together and restock the fridge about a week later it will start icing up again.

A refrigerator that I bought second hand but has worked remarkedly well and still does with one exception. Is it worth fixing.

Of course it is worth fixing! This leak is cause by a defrost drain that is blocked with ice and sludge. I really can't tell you how to remove that rear panel unless you provide a model number. This problem is worse with the Samsung dual evaporators as the evaporator inside the fresh food compartment is usually the one that causes problems on those models. There are a few GE dual evaporator refrigerators also that are really a Sumsung with the GE brand name. Here is a link that may help but you need to pay close attention to the videos and focus especially on your Brand

GE Model TPH 21 PRSM WW does not turn offf

Many things that could cause the problem First if you just plugged it or have little in it, it will run for a long time. Next check if if it is cooling properly place a thermometer in a liquid it the refrigerator compartment it should read around 42 degrees. If it is warm in the refrigerator compartment Look at the freezer back wall for frost buildup If you have frost on the back wall, you will need to defrost it and repair the defrost circuit. This is a. Common problem on GE models If the temperature is good in the fresh food compartment you will probably need to replace the thermostat or cold control

Our GE 2005 refrigerator is not cooling either side of the fridge. Problem just started

If the compressor is not running, there will not be any cooling. If you can do it yourself, check the status of the compressor starting relay, check the continuity of the thermostat on the refrigerator compartment. The compressor will not work if either the starting relay or the refrigerator compartment thermostat is bad.
On the other hand, if the compressor is running and there is no cooling at all in the freezer or refrigerator compartment , the freon may have leak; that would be the worst case scenario. If you can do your own troubleshooting, check all that I suggested. If you cannot, you might want to seek the service of a repairman. Give it a try.

Refrigerator Freezer has ice forming in the bottom inside freezer section. It appears to be leaking down the back inside compartment. The top section has an ice maker and water dispenser but I haven't had...

I believe you just described a defrost condensate blockage that is causing the leaking. There are many reasons for this happening for example water leaking from a water supply line for the dispenser or ice maker, a in the defrost pan, water leaking and draining through the refrigerator cabinet, but most are caused by a defrost drain line blockage. Below is a link that may be helpful so try to take it all in and use the parts that most refer to your specific problem, Thanks Sea Breeze

Icemaker leaking

Check two things.

1: see if you have ice buildup in the water inlet tube above ice maker, if you do chance are the water valve is bad, if not,

2: see if you have icicles hanging from bottom of ice maker, if you do you have a bad ice maker.

Either way, will need full model number and serial number both to get you the right part numbers for parts.

Leaking freezer

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. 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. please do not forget to rate the solution.thanks.
