If it is a sub zero with the freezer on the bottom you can have a insulation problem. The cold from the freezer can creep up into the fresh food section and freeze the drain tube. They sell an aftermarket drain heater that wires into the fan motor.

Water in bottom of refrigerator coming from freezer (not really sure of the exact model as I'm not home to double check).


If water appears on the floor in front of the refrigerator once or twice a day, it could be due to a clog in the defrost drain tube. The usual evidence of a clogged drain in a side-by-side refrigerator is ice under the bottom basket in the freezer compartment, in addition to a puddle of water on the floor. Try watching the YouTube videos like this one:

Hollow ice cubes and refrigerator freezer drip pan is freezing


The drain at the bottom of the evaporator on the freezer rear wall is blocked up. Ice may have gotten so far up the side of the evaporator that it is blocking a return air duct which is located there. You need to completely deice the freezer and then **** out and purge the drain hole on the bottom of the evapotrator with hot water and a turkey baster.

Frididaire side by side refrigerator- water freezing in bottom


Frozen or Plugged Defrost Drain

On Side By Side Refrigerator


The defrost drain pan is located at the bottom of the freezer compartment behind the back wall of the freezer. On some models the pan is accessible without removing the back panel and others are not.


Once you get to the defrost drain pan use a hair dryer to melt the ice from the pan.


Once the ice is removed use a turkey baster like this one: Turkey Baster http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?PartID=428708&PPStack=1

To squirt hot water into the drain hole to clear the drain.

When the drain is clear you should hear or see the water you are squirting into the hole enter the pan under or behind the refrigerator.

Top of the freezer will freeze but bottom want


Could be same as problem I just fixed.
Remove back panel inside freezer and
1. check fan operation
2. check for ice/water at bottom of the hidden section. There should be a drain hole, which may be blocked by ice. Fix by turning off and pouring boiling water in there until blockage is fixed

Ice maker not making ice


1)First check you have a water line that is getting water to the ice maker.

2)Ice makers have a valve at the bottom that open and close when told by the ice maker replace that cheap fix.

3)The ice maker needs to be repaced.
(how far into the line will the water freezehow far into the line will the water freeze)
.The valve at the back opens and closes will not leave water in the line to freeze.

Freezer leaking on Ge Profile


The drain is frozen over and water cannot escape when it defrosts. You will need to remove the back panel inside the freezer and run some hot water down the drain until it has thawed. Hope this helps
