Sounds like the drain hole is clogged . If you can see the portion in the back , where the drain hole is , (if you cannot , you may have to remove the rear inside freezer panel , 4 screws , to access the drain ) use a dull bladed knife to remove as much of the ice coating the drain as possible . Being very careful , due to the plastic liner . Once you can see the drain hole , pour hot water into the trough or use a hair dryer , until water will go thru the drain . Use a small hose , inserted into the drain hole , to blow thru , to remove any debris collected in the unseen drain line .

Leaking water on floor, even without water hooked up. Seems to be coming from under the fridge


Your freezer defrost drainage tube may not be routed to the evaporator tray under the refrigerator. If this is the case, humidity condensed from the freezer, then drained down the tube will be dripped onto the floor.
The second theory is that the drainage tube could be blocked. Humidity in the freezer is removed from the air sent to a drainage tray, at the rear of the freezer, which has a drainage tube which carries the water to an evaporation tray at the bottom of the refrigerator unit, on my GE. if the drainage tube is blocked, the water will find another route. Check the drainage tube after you find it. First try inspection. if there is standing water in tray in the freezer, use a flexible wire to clear the tube.
Good luck!

Water collecting under the freezer drawer, then freezing


We just had a similar problem with our Maytag side-by-side in the bottom of the freezer. Just as you described...sort of a glacier on the floor of the freezer that slowly melts toward the door. After several attempts to remove the ice, only to have it form again, my husband spoke with a helpful sales person in an appliance center. He said there's a drainage plug/line on the back that's supposed to funnel condensation to the evaporation tray underneath. It gets clogged and frozen. Sure enough...my husband pulled out the freezer, opened the visible line and it was all frozen and full of gunk. He had to use a hair dryer to thaw it out, then flushed it. It was amazing how much stuff came out of there. We've had no more problem since.

Water is collecting under fruit and vegetable bins and then leaking out onto kitchen floor.


sounds like a problem with defrost drainage system. would need model #. older GE refs had problem with rust holes in drain trough. how old is it? do you see any rust on back wall of ref? newer refs had problem with drain hole freezing shut and heat probe had to be installed to prevent it from freezing shut.

Ge monogram bottom freezer ice maker spills ice


It takes weeks for ice to dissipate in a freezer.
You may can adjust your cut off lights or wire cut off to cut off before it's so full.
