Question about GE Refrigerators
This refrigerator is at least 15 years old. I moved it to another house about a month ago. Ever since water runs down in the back of the freezer like it is defrosting. So much that ice fills the reservoir in the back and leaves ice in the bottom of the freezer. If I wait too long water runs across the floor. If I turn the icemaker off it doesn't happen. I replaced the icemaker but no effect. Any ideas?
It may be possible that the feed tube to the icemaker isn't all the way in the icemaker or the tube may be partially blocked with ice causing the water to splash out of the tube. If you turn off the icemaker and it stops this is a big clue that the feed tube is the culprit.

Most likely cause is a blocked defrost drain line. The freezer has a defrost cycle which turns on a heating element below the evaporator to clear any built up frost or ice. This defrosted water should then drain through a plastic line to below the unit. Check for drained water in the drip pan or plastic moulded container over the compressor. If it is completely dry then follow the blocked drain line, clear it. If further assistance is required please provide details of What brand and Model your unit is? Hope this helps.

Angels, sounds like your defrost drain is frozen over. When the refrigerator is going into defrost it's draining through the front instead of the drain pan. You can remove the shelves and peel off the back cover and clear the drain by pouring hot water on the frozen drain hole. If you have a baster of some sort you could try to squirt the hot water through the venting on the bottom of the panel. Another way to to point a hair dryer on the drain hole. The best method is to remove the shelves and panel and make sure the drain is clear. Catriver..post back.

You may want to check that your water line isn't cracked.
Ours cracked and now we need to replace our floor. The water line is too close to the compressor which heats the plastic tubing and makes it brittle. Our refrigerator is 9 years old. Model #TPX24BRYFBB

SOURCE: smelly water from door dispensor
I had the same problem. Drove me crazy and cost me about 5 filters at $50 a pop until I found the solultion. Water in the Sears/LG refrigerator that I have (french door trio) goes through the filter then into a container on the left front door of the refrigerator. That container stores the water so it can get cold and it also equalizes the flows in the system so that when you put your glass under the spigot the flow is steady and the water is cold. Problem is .... this tank can build up with algae/slime/foul tasting stuff. Since it is after the filter, no matter how many times you change the filter it will have no impact on the water in this container. That is why if you use the water spigot a lot, the water seems to get a little better (as the tank water gets diluted) but as soon as you don't use it for several hours or more, back comes the smelly water again. Solution for me was to remove the plastic panel on the inside of the left front door and clean the plastic bottle. It is pretty easy to remove with 2 screws and easy to pull off the hoses. I filled is with a little clorox and water and swished it around for several minutes then drained and rinsed it. Then I filled it again with a little clorox (like an ounce or two max) and put the container back into the fridge. Once in the fridge, I ran fridge water through the front water dispenser for about a gallon or so. This flushed out the chlorine in the plastic container as well as the lines between the container and the spigot. After about a half hour of work, my great tasting water in the fridge is back again. I've checked the taste on this water for several weeks now and no plastic/odor/bad tasting water any more. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: freezer malfunction
Drain hole is clogged behind the panel that covers the coils. I found a peice of solder blocking mine. Water was freezing on the bottom of the freezer and leaking out to the floor.
