Unplug it for awhile and allow it to thaw out. Sounds like you have it turned up too much and it's icing up. That directly affects it ability to cool.

    And just for giggles plug something else into the fridge outlet to make sure you didn't pop a fuse or have a bad plug

Water in bottom vegetable drawer and bottom of refrigerator ge profile side by side


Hi,

This model has two evaporators, so Do you have an ice ball in behind the crisper (should be on the left)? Is there brown looking water going down the back and collecting under the crispers? I need two things, a complete model number (there is 8 different model with this number you gave) also where is the ice and water located? Thanks

I’m happy to help further over the phone at https://www.6ya.com/expert/gere_bf68e6055dd61249

I have a GE Profile Arctica refrigerator - water is leaking from the punctured plastic hose going up to the water filter (plastic hose from the bottom of the solenoid goes into refrigerator assembly)....


Good day!!!!


Refrigerators with a defrost cycle drain the melted water from the evaporator coils through a tube or a hole into a drip pan underneath the refrigerator. The water usually evaporates, but most times the pan is removable and can be drained. If this path of water is blocked at any point because the drain hole or tube is crimped or clotted with anything, it will back up inside the refrigerator area and try to find a way out, usually under the crisper drawers. To fix this, clear the obstruction in the drain tube. The drain pan at the bottom of the refrigerator can overflow or get old, crack, and develop a leak. Other times, mold can grow in the drain tube and clog it. Most refrigerators have an ice and/or water system built into them. This means that you have a waterline attached to the back of your refrigerator and it comes out as ice or cold water. Anywhere that water travels through the refrigerator and freezer can turn into a leak. To find the leak, you need to follow the tubes that carry the water through the appliance and make sure that all connections are tight.
Leaking containers or spills in the refrigerator can be misdiagnosed as leaks. First make sure that there are no puddles of juice, milk, water, etc. on one of the large capacity shelves.

I hope this solution will be helpful...Thanks for using fixya..

The drain is frozen up. The fan what provides the cooling air for the fridge is stuck in the ice. Remove the vegie crisper and pop the bottom under the crisper s out. Also remove the Styrofoam plate. You will see the problem right in front of you. Use a hairdryer to get rid of the ice build up. Good luck

Crisper drawers are feezing vegetables.


look down at the bottom crisper and there should be an air control that lets more or less air in from the freezer section. close this control down so that most of the air stays in the freezer. some models may say meats(colder) and vegetables(warmer).

some models the control in the down position opens up the vent more allowing it to get colder and in the up position closes the vent down more allowing less cold air into the refrigerator. you can remove the crisper and experiment with the control.

This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


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.
