Compressed air/nitrogen. Air conditioning parts houses sell a kit used for clearing condensate drain lines. This device uses a CO2 cartridge for pressure. When you clear the drain pour a solution of 50/50 bleach water in the drain to kill the microbials.

It is probably frozen. The easiest way to clear is to unplug for 24 hrs. and leave the doors open. To speed it up you need to remove the bottom and rear panel in the freezer. After getting rid of the ice keep poring boiling hot water into the hole in the drain trough under the evaporator. Soak up with a towel and repeat till it clears if not clear after 10 to 15 min of this try inserting a wire .

I have a GE Profile side-byside fridge. I have ice that forms on the floor every three days or so. I unplugged the water, but that is not the problem.


I would check the defrost drain for blockage. Unless this is completely clear the defrost cycle will continue to let water run inside instead of into the pan underneath. It is easiest to work on this if the freezer is completely empty and the back panel inside is removed. While it is opened up check the defrost heaters as the lower one is more apt to have failed.

The defrost drain hole is frozen over.
When your fridge goes into defrost mode the water has no where to go but inside the fridge,not down the drain hole.
Turn the fridge off for 24 hours and open the doors. Let it defrost naturally to clear it out.

The refridgerator has large amnts of water leaking from freezer


Looks like your defrost element is bad and needs replacement. Or if you can do a manual defrost and check if you are getting heat on the element. If there is heat, you can find a piece of copper wire and wind it around the element, leaving a trailing length of around two centimeters into the outlet drainpipe. By conduction this should keep the drainpipe clear.

Three things. First is that your defrost element is faulty, replace. Second, if the defrost element is working there is usually a thin filiament of aluminium which is attached to the element and inserted into the drainpipe, this keeps the drainpipe from freezing up by radiant heat conducted from the element. Thirdly, your main pc board defrost side is faulty and needs replacing.

Fridge running but not staying cold


you have a defrost problem, if SxS ref. most likely bad defrost heaters. They are behind interior back wall. Sounds like you have a GE.

Fridge not cool


the coil is frosted over and no air is being pushed to the fridge it may clear up after a few defrost cycles or remove the food from the freezer and allow it to thaw completely (12hrs) the ice behind the back wall takes a long time to thoroughly melt or you will have soild ice instead of frost and then it will never thaw soild ice.

Fridge is leaking water all over the place.


The defrost drain opening or drain hose is plugged up with ice or crud. If the drip pan is bone dry, it's a sure sign that the drain opening or drain hose is clogged. Trace the drain hose back to see where it pick up the condensate in the refrigerator cabinet. Remove whatever pieces you need to to clean that sucker out. Door gaskets are torn or not making good contact with the cabinet. No? Well then where's all that water coming from, Einstein? It can only come from the humidity in the outside air--your fridge can't make water, dontcha know
