You are probably hearing water running out of the unit during a defrost cycle. It runs inside a tube to the underneath of the refrigerator where it is collected in a pan and evaporated into the room by heat from the compressor fan.

Model #GX5SHDXVB03 freezer floor filling with ice (water run down back then freezes)


So I figured out what the real problem is with this model of freezer. There is an updated drain that needs to be installed. The old version gets plugged from dust and no amount of thawing will fix it. if your appliance is less than 2 years old the manufacturer will pay to have your appliance updated with the new part. If your appliance is over two years old they will send you the new part for free.

There is water that is freezing inside the bottom of the freezer. I turned everything off and cleaned out everything including vacuuming the back. The unit is less then 4 years old


In the bottom of the freezer there is normally a plate you can remove and expose the drain. It is probably clogged, just use a wet dry vacuum to clear. Also debris is sometimes to blame.

Freezer is not defrosting


Sounds as if the drain line in back is stopped up in the freezer section. Sometimes the insulation which is foam the excess settles in the drain area must be cleaned out. You will have to remove the inside of the freezer section to get to it. It;s best to take outside and use a water hose to flush it out. A messy job but it works. BB

Ice maker flooded top freezer compartment


It may be just the water control valve on back of refrigerator. Put tap water in ice maker and lower lever for on. After ice is made, does it drop to tray? At this time when empty is the time the control valve is asked for water. The problem could be in valve on back or the inside ice maker itself. If you can try a few test with me I will help you locate the problem. Let me know what you find as I go through this with you. Sea Breeze

I have water pooling on my fridge trays and than turning into ice . The water seems to be coming from the vents. How do i get rid of that.


The freezer compartment has a drain hole behind the back wall inside the freezer compartment. The drain hole has probably rusted and has gotten larger. Carefully remove the icemaker and the screws from the back wall inside the freezer compartment. Lift the bottom of the back wall and look to see if the drain hole has gotten larger. You can make a small funnel from an aluminum can to fit over this area directing the water into the drain tube. It worked for me. good luck. Dave.

DEFROSTING/ WATER RUNNING ONTO FLOOR & INSIDE FRIDGE


Check to see if the run-off tube at the back is plugged.

I dont know how old the fridge is - but if it a couple years old check at the back or the fridge - there should be a tube running down the back of the fridge down into the bottom tray. This tube funnels water from the freezer (condensation, or water from the defrost) down onto the tray holding the compressor where it evaporates with help from the heat off the compressor. Sometimes this tube can get plugged up with some scum or mineral deposits, causing the built up water to drain from inside the fridge.

The tube shouldn't be too hard to remove and clean out with some hot water and pipe cleaners. Had the same issue on on a GE fridge last year.
Hope this helps!

Problem with a Whirlpool Upright Freezer


One way would be to unplug the freezer and allow all the ice to melt.It will open the path for draining.Then plug it back in making sure that there is know gaps on your door gasket that would allow warm air in which would make the same problem.

THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH THE DRAINAGE. iTS BLOCKED. YOU NEED TO DEFROST THE FRIDGE PROPERLY FOR A DAY TO REMOVE THE ICE THEN APPLY PRESSURE (BLOW) IN THE PIPE SITUATED ON TOP OF THE COMPRESSOR.THIS WILL CLEAR THE BLOCKAGE. RESTART YOUR FRIDGE.
