Remove the freezer bins and shelves.
Remove the rear freezer panel.
The drain is on the bottom center of the freezer after the rear panel is removed.

MY GE SIDE BY SIDE TFX25PR,TFT25PR IS NOT COOLING PROPERLY AND STOPPED MAKING ICE.WHAT CAN I DO?


Check for frost build up on the back wall of the freezer. This is a sure sign of a defrost problem. Is the fan running? Check the defrost heater for continuity. If you have continuity at the heater, there is a very good chance the main circuit on the back of the fridge needs to be replaced.

I have GE Profile PDS18SBMRBS refrigerator. The drain tube keeps clogging with ice, blocking the fan that blow air into the refrigerator, hence stopping the cooling. How do I fix it permanently?


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.

GE Profile with water leaking. Does not seem to be a slow leak. More like an intermittant "dump." Water on floor and refrigerator shelves. Thanks!


Look under the refrigerator and locate the defroster water drain pan. There should be a tube running down the back of the refrigerator which drains water into this pan.

If this tube or other parts of the defroster drain system gets blocked, water can get diverted before it reaches the drain pan.

GE profile dishwasher won't drain


Common cause of this problem is a partially blocked drain line. Disconnect drain line and make sure entire path is clear, including where it connects to the sink drain or garbage disposal. Also, make sure all screens and the drain area at the bottom of the dishwasher are completely clear.

MY GE PROFILE REFRIGERATOR IS WARM, FREEZER IS FINE.


i think its not the frz drain hole blocking up but a fault with the defrost tray heater. the tray heater should keep the defrosted frost as water to drain away. it sounds as though the tray heater is not working therefore letting the water freeze as it is escaping thorough the drain hole. i would check this out by defrosting the unit and inserting a flexi rod into the otherside of the drain hole (above the compressor usually) and after clearing it if it freezes up again check out the defrost/heater system.
