Question about GE Profile Performance 25.2 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with Dispenser TFX25PPBWW
There was a puddle of water on my floor this has never happened before. food is not that cold but temp setting on freezer is 16 degrees. i look inside of freezer and water is leaking from ice maker and dont feel like its freezing
Depending on the make, year, model and sometimes age of the unit, it could be the start relay and capacitor. Sometimes a power surge, or defective compressor, will cause the system to shut down and stop cooling, but occassionally the start relay will go bad and require simple replacement. Usually when you replace the start relay, it's a good idea to replace the capacitor as well. Upon purchasing these two items, check with the vendor to see if they will accept returns in the event this doesn't work because these two items can run between $80-$100 in some areas. A 3 n' 1 Start Solid State Relay Overload Start Capacitor Combination (Hard Start system) will do the same thing, you just need to know your systems H.P. rating (1/4-1/3 H.P., etc) in order to get the right part. Again, if this doesn't work, your compressor could be shot and the expense of replacing it along with service cost might warrant replacing the old refrigerator-freezer with a more modern system. Plus your home owners policy may cover some of the expense if you can show a power surge from your utility company into an un-protected system caused the damage. If your deductible isn't to high, you can off set the purchase of a new system by filing on your home owners. The average cost for a side by side refrigerator-freezer, depending on cubic feet, could range from $1000-$1700. A dependable service operative is suggested if you are not very comfortable with basic repair techniques, or these simple suggested remedies fail to solve your problem. As always, have your owners manual handy and scope it for ideas on problem solving. *If the food is thawing, you need to cook up what is left if possible, or you may buy some dry ice and place it in the freezer to keep the food frozen for a short period. The amount needed will be determined by the number of cubic feet of your system. Hope that helps and good luck.

I see you said you looked and the water valve is off but the only that I know of this happening is a defective water control valve. Like a dripping faucet that when off slowly drips until the ice forms and then one the ice maker dumps ice and tries to refill the water goes in every direction. Unplug water valve to confirm what I am saying, Tell me if it continues to leak. Sea Breeze
