When the freezer goes into the defrost cycle the ice melts and the water is directed via tube to an area under the refrigerator where the heat from the compressor and condensor will cause it to evaporate. No need for concern.

SOURCE: Ice Maker Water Supply Hose Freezes

Justin, the cause is a failed water inlet valve (behind the fridge, near the floor). The solution is to replace the valve.

The part number of your valve is 4389177 and it lists for ~$65.00. You can find one at a local appliance parts outlet or order it online. (actually, the valve kit comes with instructions =) )

Easy to replace. Pull out the fridge, unplug it and turn the water off at the wall. Now use a 1/4" socket or nut driver and remove all the screws holding that cardboard cover in place. Now remove the water hose from the valve and remove the 2 screws that mount the valve to the fridge. Pull the valve out and notice how it's wired and how the plumbing is done. Then simply wire in and put the tubing on the new valve and rebuild everything.

Job time? About half an hour. Good luck and don't sweat it, this repair is a snap.

SOURCE: LG refrigerator GR-B258jvc - replacing light bulb

There are usually 3 or 4 locking tabs on the cover that just need to be pressed INDIVIDUALLY toward the bulb to release them and then carefully remove the cover. The ones with 3 tabs usually have and upper and lower tab then the thrid tab is on the side. Removed the upper and lower tabs by pressing inward to the bulb and then the cover will pivot out on the 3rd SIDE tab.

Thanks for using FixYa.

SOURCE: I have a GE Profile Arctica refrigerator - water

Good day!!!!

Refrigerators with a defrost cycle drain the melted water from the evaporator coils through a tube or a hole into a drip pan underneath the refrigerator. The water usually evaporates, but most times the pan is removable and can be drained. If this path of water is blocked at any point because the drain hole or tube is crimped or clotted with anything, it will back up inside the refrigerator area and try to find a way out, usually under the crisper drawers. To fix this, clear the obstruction in the drain tube. The drain pan at the bottom of the refrigerator can overflow or get old, crack, and develop a leak. Other times, mold can grow in the drain tube and clog it. Most refrigerators have an ice and/or water system built into them. This means that you have a waterline attached to the back of your refrigerator and it comes out as ice or cold water. Anywhere that water travels through the refrigerator and freezer can turn into a leak. To find the leak, you need to follow the tubes that carry the water through the appliance and make sure that all connections are tight.
Leaking containers or spills in the refrigerator can be misdiagnosed as leaks. First make sure that there are no puddles of juice, milk, water, etc. on one of the large capacity shelves.

I hope this solution will be helpful...Thanks for using fixya..

Freezer compartment drain trough misaligned, so hole at bottom of trough and the tube drain hose don't line up. Kenmore side by side refrigerator model 253.5567440N

These often never line up and shouldn't be an issue. The most likely problem is a slow/or blocked drain. Sometimes you can flush it with hot water and it will clear it but sometimes it needs to be removed and maybe flush it outside from the garden hose or in the laundry room. You would need to pull the unit out and remove the bottom cardboard cover to get to the drain tube.

Water is freezing in the bottom drawer GEProfile bottom drawer freezer and leaking water on floor

Sounds like your drain tube is blocked in the freezer for the defrost water. The drain tube is in the back left or right corner and will have a drain trough under the cooling coils tilting towards it. That trough will probably have ice built up all over it. Once the ice is out you may need to force hot water down the drain tube. I use to use a turkey baster with a rubber hose on it to force the hot water down the drain tube. Its clear when you put water in the trough top and it goes down the tube freely to the drain pan under the refrigerator.

I have water puddling up under my Vegetable bins

Our fridge had the same problem with water under the crispers. My husband removed the slide out bottom out of the freezer section and exposed the galvanized trough that drains the defrost water into the drainage tube that goes to the tray under the refrigerator. Hallelujah! the galvanized trough was rusted through and allowing water to drip into the refrigerator instead of the drain hose. I have not found the trough on any parts lists so he is patching it with putty.

If you are refering to the 3/4 " tubing , it's the defrost drain hose from the drain trough to the drain pan under refrig . If it's the 1/4 " tubing , that goes from the water valve to the icemaker .

Water will not drain. Motor is working. Drain does not appear to be clogged.

GE has equipped many of their dishwashers with a crappy anti-syphon ball. The problem with this is that they often relocate and clog the drain. To fix it, syphon all the water out of the basin of the diswasher and remove the kick plate. Open the dishwasher and remove the 1/4" hex head screw behind the food screen and remove the spray arm by prying the plastic clip on the back side (be careful not to break it). Then remove the two 1/4" hex head screws in the plastic basket and remove it. Remove the two screws that hold the dishwasher to the countertop and slide the dishwasher out. There is a large manilla colored hose with a huge hose clamp on it. Have plenty of rags on hand because this part gets messy. Remove the hose clamp and pull this area open. A small white plastic ball should roll out. Replace the hose clamp and slide the dishwasher back into place (clean up all the water that escaped first, and make sure you have turned off the power to the dishwasher before beginning). Drop the ball into the small tube on the left side under where the plastic basket goes. Installation is reverse of removal.

LG Dehumidfier

When you install the drain tube, be sure that it is placed into the drain hole in the dehumidifier. You then will be able to "latch" the tube at the hose end by lowering onto the outer hole opening. This maintains a tight connection and the water will drain properly.
