Remove the crisper drawers and you will see a drain trough and a drain line . One or both is most likely blocked. If you pull the drain line off the trough usually you can clear it with a turkey baster filled with hot water

Hello. My G.E. Monogram water dispenser trickles water after we get water from it. We have to keep a cup there to catch the excess water. How do I fix it so it stops as soon as we get water out of t


Try replacing the Water Valve. It is located in the back of the refrigerater, left side. You should see three tubes connected to it. This part fixes the following symptoms - Leaking water, Water dispenser will not dispense water, Ice maker will not make ice and Ice maker won't dispense ice. GE part#WR57X10032. The Water Valve is extreemly easy to replace. Only takes about 15 mins total time to remove, install and confirm. I just replaced mines..my problem went from leaking water to no water was dispensing at all. I have the GE Profile, it uses the same water valve as your GE Monogram. There is a You Tub video that also shows how to replace. Good Luck!

Refrigerator leaks


If it a frost free fridge it should self defrost every 6 to 8 hours all by its self. If you see ice or frost buildup in side the freezer usually back wall harder to notice if the cooling fins are just under the freezer floor but above the fridge ceiling or better picture it as the fridges taint. Sounds like the fridge is having defrost problems and if it every once in awhile does go into defrost or you do it, all that water flows down a hose and out the back around the compressor. Heat from the compressor or other gadgets evaporate the water. If it only defrost a few times a year it is going to overflow the catch basin. Easy to check some times catch basin or drain hose move check back bottom or remove front cover look if bottom catch basin. Main fault is defrost timer stuck in run, location all over in or out, defrost element around cooling fins,defrost thermostat on cooling fins,wiring to / from / joining the last two.

I have sub zero 642 and my techinician says that I need a ice make valve replacement. He says it costs $495, does that seem accurate?


Sub-Zero a hallowed name in refrigeration, and the 642 side-by-side refrigerator/freezer unit is a landmark Yeah, it's that impressive. Dual refrigeration uses two compressors and three evaporators, I can tell you to never expect less than $300 for calling anyone to your home!

No, the door is foamed together.
Remove small drip catch at bottom of dispenser area. Use silicone to seal recess along front edge and the two front corners. That should prevent water from getting under the door trim.

There is water coming from under the refrig. The overfill water pan is full that is under the freezer. The ice maker is working and so is the water dispenser. The coils are really dusty could this cause...


The overflow pan is the water that is collected during the AUTO DEFROST and usually the water evaporates off before the next defrost cycle. so if there is overflow of water on the collection tank , then the thermostat must be kept a little lower to reduce more frosting.

GE Side By Side Ice Machine & Water dispenser not getting water


you may have a pin hole in your water line to your dispenser or you could be leaking at the water valve itself on the water dispenser side. you'll have to pull the refrigerator out from the wall and look where the main water line goes into the back of the refrigerator. you will probably have to take the back off to see. be sure you put the back of the refrigerator back when you are through.

Door panel to dispense ice and water doesn't work. the bulk ice dispenser inside the refrigerator is working.


I have the same problem. I have to turn off the power button on refrigerator and turn it back on again. Then the ice dispenser and water dispenser will work again. It happened very often.

Although my sub zero 642 is holding the temperature, there is water leaking from underneath the refrigerator every day onto the floor. Sometimes it is heavier than others.


it's condensate from the evaporator coils. when the humidity collects on the coils, it should drain into a pan under the fridge that gets evaporated from the hot-side line. check to see if the condensate tube from the coils is still in the pan.
