Question about GE J Series 18.2 cu. ft. Top Freezer No-Frost Refrigerator TBX18AABWW
My GE fridge drain tube froze up twice within two weeks causing the fan to stop. Pouring hot water down the tube cleared the drain but only temporarily. The last time the technician took the back of the fridge and saw that the drain hose was curled up in a "U" shape. It was freezing at the U junction. He simply cut the tube so water drained straight down and no problem now for two years. I think a planned defect to encourage consumers to purchase a new fridge every few years. Otherwise, why not publish this fix. My sister had the same problem with her GE fridge and after two repairs, just bought a new fridge. Probably could have been repaired with the same fix I had. Shame GE!

Your problem is a clogged defrost drain . This is accessed from inside the freezer section and by removeing the rear freezer panel . Use a hairdryer to defrost the pan , under the coils . Also , the drain line for your model , is located behind the refrig . So , you only have a short area between the drain hole and drain line , to clear . I would suggest blowing thru the drain hose behind the refrig also , to make sure it is clear .
