Yes, you may have two problems. The seals around the door are defective or the drain to the pan below the refrigerator is blocked or both. I will need you to read a few things that may help you and I am here to help you get this solved. Now because the water is inside the fresh food compartment I believe the drain is blocked in sid the back and rear of the refrigerator. Look at the first link below and see if this applies to you. Then read the second link and ask me questions if you need. Please rate me and Thank You, Sea Breeze

Water accumulating inside fridge bottom make GE Model #gta18pbnaww


That's normal especially if you tend to leave the door open alot. Moisture from the outside air condenses and drips to the bottom. Also, if the refrigerator is automatic self-defrosting it will melt ice collecting around the refrigerator and the resulting water will collect at the bottom. Check under the food drawers for a drain hole. If it is clogged, clean it out. If it doesn't exist, periodically sponge out the bottom under the drawers.

GE side by side, GSS22UFMWW, water dispensor does not work, when I try it water leaks from the bottom of the frig. I can hear it pumping.


Turns out there is actually a small drain hole on the bottom of the freezer where condensation and such goes. Take out your bottom drawer/shelf and look in the back of the freezer.

Pulled out the bottom white tray that is under the wire shelving and at the back of the freezer is a small hole. Pour in a cap full of bleach and then 1 cup of boiling water. There can be condensation builds up and clogs the hole.

On humid days water puddles in the bottom of the frig.


Sounds like the door is not closing properly so humid air is coming into the fridge OR door not closing properly and the humid air is condensing around the door so it is leaking the condensation OR

The water from the defrost cycle is not evaporating so it overflows from the evaporator pan above the compressor. You better call a service technician before getting some floor damage (Do not call A&E)

Water dripping onto back of shelves and into drawers and bottom of "designer style" frig


There is a tube at the back of most fridges which routes freezer water to a evaporator tray at the bottom.

Usually in the fridge at the top just below the freezer is a small collection cup. If that cup or tube is blocked then it will drip water into your fridge.

Let me know if that helps.

Collecting water at bottom of frig inside under drawers.


begin by removing the grill on the front at floor level. look under there and you will see the evaporation pan. next pull the fridge out from the wall so you can get behind it. there you will see the tube. to unclog it you will have to disconnect it at the top and force hot water into it using a turkey baster.

Water collects on shelves and below the crisper bins at bottom


Your defrost drain hole is frozen closed.
Remove the back freezer panel and defrost the ice with a hair dryer.
Once the drain is clear poura 1/4 cup bleach in the drain hole.

Water on btm of glass shelves and water in bottom of frig


sounds like you have a gap in the door seal, which results in condensation forming inside unit. Use a blow dryer to heat the seal around the door and ensure that the fit is tight.

open the freezer compartment loo for ice build up on floor of frezer especally towards rear behind back panel. sounds like you have a clogged/frozen defrost drain tube. removing back panel of freezer will give you acess to drain trough, melt away the ice with a hair dryer, youll find a drain hole under there somwhere,pouring boiling water down the drain will clear it pretty quickly( i use a steam machine purchased from the infomercials)
