If this is a freezer on top model Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help. Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.

Water leaking in refrigerator and floor of a 1997 GE top freezer type,model numberTBX22P1


As the only source of water is condensation or melting food, I would check to see if there is a drain hole at the bottom back of the fridge. This hole is to drain any water into the back of the machine where it evaporates. Use a pipe cleaner or similar to poke the muck through the hole and the water will drain away. Keep this hole clean every time you clean your fridge.

Refrigerator ge profile model TFH27PR water leaking onto floor


Hi this problem could arise due to various reasons so lets find out what could it be the cause.

1)In the back of your freezer compartment is the drain hole. It's very common in GE for the drain to freeze up. With the drain hole plugged up, your freezer will continue to defrost the evaporator, but not the water in the drain hole. So the water builds and freezes, builds and freezes until it eventually overflows into the air diffuser for the fridge causing the leaky fridge problem."Heat Probe" that can be installed.This will prevent water from freezing up in the drain hole allowing it to drain as designed

2)Inspect the door seals and the sides of the refrigerator around the doors. If you see any beads of water or moisture, then the door seals may be failing to create an air tight seal which causes the cold air from the refrigerator to escape and form condensation around the doors. Sometimes you can solve this problem by applying a light film of gasket lubricant to the existing seals or just cleaning them of any debris with a warm soapy rag. If they still don't seal well after you apply lubricant, or clean them, you may need to replace the entire seal assembly.

3) If the water is coming from the freezer but you think that the defrost drain pipe is clear, then it may be coming from the ice maker. Check the ice maker for cracks in the unit's body or a misalignment of the water supply line. Make sure that the water supply spout in the freezer lines up with the ice maker's water supply cup.

4)Check the ice maker copper water supply line, your ice maker water filter, and the plastic ice maker water supply tube for any cracks, splits or connection leaks. If you find any leaks, remove the leaking part and obtain a replacement at the hardware store.

5)Your leaking refrigerator may just have a cracked or damaged drain pan. Your fridge regularly drains water into this pan to prevent water pooling in the fridge itself. Evaporation takes care of the rest. Look underneath your fridge where the drain pan sits and pull it out for inspection. If it has a crack or is otherwise damaged, contact the appropriate retailer about getting a replacement as soon as possible.

6)If your leaking refrigerator is draining inside as opposed to onto your floor, you're probably dealing with a clogged defrost drain. Your fridge is constantly producing condensation inside the freezer, and that condensation drips down the defrost drain into a drain pan underneath the unit. This defrost drain can become clogged with debris or, more often, it freezes shut. Look in your refrigerator manual to locate your defrost drain, and take the appropriate steps to unclog it (inundating your drain with warm water will often do the trick).

Note:Switch you Refrigerators for more than 8 hours and let the frost melt fully use hair dryer and now switch on and check you are getting leak.

There is a leak at the front of refrig clear water and all water lines have no holes and only happens in summer time


Just fixed mine w/the same problem! Unplug the fridge and pull it away from the wall. Check that your drain hose is not clogged: it runs down the back of your fridge and you need to disconnect the tubing from the fixture where it goes into the middle of the back of the fridge, by turning the fixture approx. 1/4 turn counterclockwise. This will help disconnect the tubing and will allow you to pull out the fixture which connects to the internal drain. I had to run a pipe cleaner and hot water thru this fixture, which has several S-curves in it that traps sediment. Check the tubing too. If these aren't clogged, your internal drain may be iced over. You will have to empty the contents of your freezer, and remove the icemaker and back panel of the freezer (my screws were 1/4-inch ratchet type). There is a drain hole at the middle bottom of the back wall. Check for ice and pour in very hot water to melt it. Check the inside of the bottom part of your fridge to make sure water isn't leaking in from the cooling vents at the control panel. If neither of these tasks works, then I don't know what to tell you! Good luck!

Once defrosted , use a small hose inserted into the drain hole , and blow thru , to remove any debris , built up inside the drain line . Reassemble .

I have a GE TBX25PAXCRWW top mount freezer model. It is leaking water from the light switch. I would assume it is a blocked evap line. Do I access it from the insde of the freezer or outside.


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 .
