Turned power back on to the Refrigerator. Freezer working OK, upper, refigerator section not cooling. (Light's on, etc. but temp is not cool!!

Air vents to the refrigerator section must hve blocked.
also check for a longer time to see wether freezer also goes hot after sometime and stops cooling.if the freezer goes hot too,then its a defrost timer failure and you will hve to replace the timer.but if the freezer continous to work then its just a problem of clogged refrigerator section vents.cleaning up clogging should solve the problem.

GE MONOGRAM Icemaker: ice melts and re-freezes, resulting in a large frozen piece of ice in the bin


Are you sure icicles are coming from ice bin? Remove ice bin and look above it and see if they are coming from ceiling area of freezer. Side by side monograms have had problems with drains causing water to back-up into freezer. This causes icicles from ceiling. If that,s the case you have to purchase the kit for this. This is not an easy fix and can take a couple hours, even for a pro who's done it before.

I have a GE monogram side by side refrigerator and water has started collecting in the "express chill" drawer at the bottom of the refrigerator side. It appears to be collecting in the "ceiling" of th


water into the fresh section or just on the floor around freezer or fresh food door. I also cannot take all credit for solutions in the area of refrigerators leaking water. Every person contributes their own experience so those that have should also be rewarded for their own efforts. I am pretty sure you are having a defrost by CouponDropDown">drain blockage problem. Most defrost every eight hours and over a period of time the drain line that comes down from freezer into a cup like object top middle and back of the fresh food section. If blocked by gunk or ice you will see trails of liquid leaking down the rear wall of fresh food compartment until it reaches the crisper drawers.This is not always the same with every model as you may see frozen ice flowing down ther rear wall of freezers on side by sides. Here is an example Click here=> Whirlpool Leak Photo taken by TechnicianBrian He has been around a good bit and deserves credit for his contributions. Here is another way to make this look more si mple in clip below. TechnicianBrian.com And in this photo are several parts listed in photo group #1 were it is most likely running down the wall=> MagicChef CTB1921AR fresh food section. If you still have questions please ask and rate me if I was able to explain this well enough. Every refrigerator is made different so these are examples only. The key is to find if ice or just gunk has blocked you defrost drain. Unplug and then remove the rear panel in back of freezer. We need to see if the water is overflowing the condensate drain tray or if the blockage is in the turn the drain leads down back of your refrigerator. Much more on this page=> Leaking Refrigerators! This is a common tip so I will be placing this post and add as we go new ideas listed in Sea Breeze Tips Section. If you run into any problems along the way of repair please let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Water leaking into refrigerator section from freezer


The drain trough is clogged under the coils behind the freezer wall and also there should be a "p" trap on the back that is connected to the drain tube running to the bottom. Remove trap by turning and pulling being careful not to break the neck. You should be able to blow any debris out. Good luck. Blow don't ****. lol

I have this same problem. Now, the freezer will not get cold enough, but still water runs down into the ice bin and just turns into a big solid block of ice. The water is dripping from the top of the freezer compartment. I have disconnected the water coming to the refrig to not allow it to make ice, but still happening. Please post if you have found a solution? Defroster issues?

Ice build up bottom of freezer and water on floor GE Monogram


I had the same problem. The drain tube is located below the pan below the fins at the rear of your freezer. The drain tube has a trap (s-shaped curve) to prevent air flow out of the freezer. The problem is that water gets in this tube and freezes. I took the sheet metal cover off the back, got a turkey baster and flexible tube, and continuously flushed hot water (after the freezer had been turned off around an hour to thaw). Eventually the plug gave way.
