Water in Bottom of Refrigerator/How disconnect icemaker

I have water in the bottom of my GE Refrigerator Model TBX22VI (a top freezer model). I believe the defrost line is clogged. My problem is that I don't know how to get the ice maker disconnected so I can take off the back panel and unclog the drain.

Hi, Remove the ice maker by loosening the screws that hold it to the wall. Once it is loose, there is enough wire that you can unplug the icemaker and set it aside. Now remove the rear panel and you can unplug the drain. Be sure and flush hot water through the drain to be sure it is oen.
I hope this helps you.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Your inlet tube that goes to the icemaker may be frozen. To Check: Shut off water supply to Fridge, disconnect the water line that goes to the icemaker at top back. Use a flexible item to insert in the water line connection. I used a zip tie. If the flexible item won't all the through to the ice maker, the line is frozen. Thaw out the tube from inside the freezer with a hair dryer. Re-connect everything, you now have ice . . . Solution #2: You may have to replace your "Water Inlet Valve" located at bottom right rear of Fridge. Easy to do, just follow the color codes, be sure and shut off the water.

GE PDS20MCP - the Ice maker is not making ice. Took out full tray of ice and has not made any since? Is there some reset button or something?


Before you the Water Valver - Shut your water off - disconnect the water line to the from the back of the refrigerator at the top where it goes into the icemaker. I used zip tie or something flexable to see if it would go all the way through to the
tube inside the refrig. If you have obstruction - use your hair dryer
to thaw the ice from inside the refrigerator tube. When the flexable item goes all the way through. Hook back the water line to the icemaker. You will have ice soon. If still not working, replace the inlet water valve at bottom back of refrig.

Ice inlet tube may be frozen up inside of Fridge. Thaw it out with a hair blower. Shut of water supply and disconnect the water line that goes into the back. Use a flexable item at the connection to see if will go all the way through to the icemaker. I used a zip tie.

If you still don't have water going to the icemaker, you may need to replace the "Water Inlet Valve" at bottom back right of your Fridge. Easy to Do.

Have the fridge pulled out and check behind it. I had same model and it was leaking into my walls/floor and caused thousands of dollars in damage to my kitchen. BLACK MOLS Covered my walls/cabinets and made me sick. Please be very careful with this excess water coming from this model. GE should recall it but will not unless forced. Not Cool.

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.

All water underneath.ice in the bottom.freezer working.not making


If I understand you correctly your water line that comes through the back wall of the freezer and into the icemaker is frozen. If so you have a bad water valve. When the valve goes bad it will not seal off the water. It will seep causing a slow drip where the water comes out at you icemaker. It'd slow enough to freez causing a ice blockage. This will not allow water to come through and fill your icemaker when it calls for water.

Water leaking from freezer.


Either the inlet valve is stuck or the icemaker solenoid is shored.

Most likely the second one.
