Question about GE Refrigerators
Hi there: Most likely it is a problem with the defrost drain. Common in GE's. Luckilly not expensive to fix. The water is guided down to the bottom of the refrigerator to a pan above the coils to evaporate the water. If it gets clogged the water will ususally pool under the crispers. The defrost water just isn't going where it should. Some older GE's directed the water to a trough benind the crispers, then through a hole (like a shallow funnel) to the pan. Lood for this hole under the crispers and clean it out. With a pipe cleaner or a cup of warm water and bleach. If there is no hole there continue to the next pary. I looked at your model on line but the parts diagrams weren't clear as to where the tube goes(inside or outside of fridge,). This is why I'm giving you two parts. It is also possible that the defrost tube runs down the back of the refrigerator. In this case empty the freezer and look in the back for the same hole in the back of the shallow pan. This link might help you to locate it. Then use the warm clorox water or a pipe cleaner to clean out the tube. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getSubComp.pd?modelNumber=TBX25PASLRAA&productCategoryId=0166000&brandId=0432&modelName=TOP-MOUNT-REFRIGERATOR&diagramPageId=00005&componentDescription=COMPARTMENT .
I hope this helps, Jeff
