SOURCE: frige has water dripping in from freezer

Hi, Check the door seal.

Ice is often caused by warm, moist air getting into the freezer and condensating, then freezing.

SOURCE: My ge profile fridge have a clogged frozen drain in the freezer.

Using the blow dryer is a common option but sometimes could be dangerous to certain machines. There is always a button to blow hot air for unclogging the ice in the freezer. But the best option is to turn the entire fridge off for at least 4-5 hrs. This keeps the internal machine safe from being damaged. Also the items in the fridge will not be damaged as cooling effect inside the fridge will be maintained for at least 6 hrs after the power is cut-off.Good luck with the machine and hope the answer is helpful.

SOURCE: Freezer drain line keeps freezing over

Good day,
Whirpool machines have a very short defrost cycle, as compaired to many brands. This definitely contributes to the problem.
1. Make sure the drain fittings and drain hose to the drain pan are completely open. Not just open, but blown free of any debrise.
2. My experience with many whirlpool products, is ice built up under and back of the drain pan in the freezer compartment. It cannot be seen.
To solve this problem long term, means unplugging the machine, defrosting, and drying it out completely.
24 hours and idealy with a floor fan blowing into the compartment.
3. As well, you wil notice a small round disk clipped to the top of the evaporator. This is the defrost thermostat, and controls the temperature during defrost.
I change and bump this tstat up 5 degrees.
For example, if it's a 50 degree tstat, I replace it with a 55 degree. Or if it's 55 degrees I use a 60 degree model.
You will not be able to buy this as a Whirlpool item, but you can with a little effort, use a GE kit.

The part number for GE replacement kits are for example "WR50X55", the last 2 numbers are the temperature of that tstat, and run in 5 degree increments from 45 degrees to 60 degrees.

A sharp appliance parts house counterman should be able to help you.

P.S. The tstat in Whirlpools are often given in Celsius.
You'll have to convert that to farenheit
Patience in drying the machine is your friend here.
Jack..

Why does my GE model number TBX1811 refrigerator leak from the back inside the fridge


Water leaking inside it
  1. Check the lines to your dispenser
If the lines to your dispenser are broken or damaged you will need to replace them.
  1. Damaged drain pan
If your drain pan has holes or cracks it will also need to be replaced.
  1. Clogged drain
If you experience any clogged drains, they must also be unclogged or replace. If you experience this at the ceiling of your unit it can be attributed to a clog in the freezer section. Remove the divider and let the insulation thaw out and dry.

Water on the floor--need to unclog defrost drain line on GE PSW26SGNABS side-by-side. Where is the drain line? It's not anywhere in the user manual. Thanks!


Here's an exploded diagram of your freezer compartment:

The defrost drain is the round hole in part 232 of the diagram. Clear the line by thawing the defrost drain. BTW, you won't be able to see the drain very well, especially if it's iced up. The easiest thing to do would be to unplug your refrigerator, open the doors and let it thaw overnight. If you can't do that, take the food out of the freezer and thaw the drain with a hair dryer.

Good Luck!

Water is draining and freezing from the freezer and leaks onto the floor


This is an easy fix! First either remove the back access panel or remove the interior freezer access cover. You can reach the drainline from either side. What has happened is your evaporator drain line is clogged. You will need to use a blowdryer to thaw the ice blocking the drain line. The drain line is located at the bottom of the freezers interior back wall. All you will need is a long screwdriver/clotheshanger. Once you have thawed the line stick your screwdriver/clotheshanger and unrestrict the line. I hope I helped you.

I have ice at the bottom of my side by side GE TFX30PRY. It seems to be a clogged drain but I'm not sure where the drain is located on this model


Remove the bottom freezer crisper , and at the bottom of the panel ( it looks like you have a drain trough cover which has to be removed ) , if its not frozen over with ice , youll see a drain hole . Use a hair dryer to defrost the drain until you see the hole . Then continue defrosting the hole until water will flow thru it . Sometimes , hot water helps to thaw the drain . When thawed , use a small hose inserted into the drain , and blow thru it , to clear out any debris in the line .

Water dripping from bottom of freezer casing


Your drain line is frozen. Ice thawed by the heater in the freezer normally drains down a tube into a pan on top of the compressor, where it evaporates from compressor heat. If the drain freezes the water runs into the freezer bottom instead of the tube then into your fridge. To solve this remove everything from your freezer and remove the access panel in the back or bottom depending on your model of fridge. Turn off or unplug the appliance. Upon removing the panel(s). you will likely see that the bottom of the freezer is full of ice. Use a hair dryer or heat gun to thaw ice and remove. In the very back bottom you will uncover the drainhole. I usually use very hot water and a shop vac to thaw the drain hole. When you finally clear it you will hear water running into the pan on top of the compressor. Somethimes it takes a lot of hot water to clear the drain. Hope this helps!

GE Monogram refrigerator is leaking water on the floor


At some point the freezer got too cold and the drain froze (it is a poor design with a loop in the bottom). Once this freezes it will not thaw for a long time.

Here is what I did:
  • Remove all items from freezer and let it completely thaw
  • Pull unit away from wall to access rear
  • Cut loop off drain line where it hangs in drain pan
  • Place a bare copper wire (#12 will work) through the drain line and wrap it loosely around the heating coil above drain pan
  • Enjoy

Did this 6 months ago and have not had problem since

GE GBS18HBRAWW / ICE BUILD UP IN DRAIN LINE/TROUGH


Check for a blockage around the through area from the freezer to the refrig. or something such as a jug of milk that you keep in the same loacation time after time. if this jug or what ever stays in this area that can cause a cold spot and keep that area from getting warm enough to let ice thaw.

Ice build-up around the fan making a noise.


Drain line froze.
Used hair dryer to thaw frozen line, works OK now. 01/07/09
Think the frozen drain line was caused by the light in the refrigerator not shutting off when the door closes, causing excess cooling in the freezer. Poor design on the light shutoff switch, corrected design to make permanent repair
