Your defrost line coupling , is blocked from inside the freezer , to the defrost line behind the refrig . You will have to remove the inside rear freezer panel and icemaker if equiped , and defrost the drain hole in the center below the coils . Hot water will help .

GE Side-by-side refrigerator defrost drain trough keeps freezing up. Drain tube is clear and never gets frozen but ice builds ups and overflows into the bottom of the freezer. What is causing this?


Sounds as if the defrosting timer or the heating element has gone out. Since the fridge works without problem off and on I would lean toward the heating element.

Water pressure is very low, takes a minute to fill a glass. Its not the filter that has been changed


IT MAY BE A CLOGGE IN THE WATER HOSE. GO BEHIND THE REFRIDG CLOSE THE MAIN WATER LINE VALVE. PULL OUT THE HOSE SEE IF ANY WATER COME OUT FROM THE HOSE.
AND USE A SMALL BOKETT SO YOU CAN TEST THE REFIDG WATER VALVE CONTROLLER. PLUG BACK THE POWER SUPPLY AND FACE THE HOSE IN THE BOKETT AND DEPRESS THE WATER SWITCH AT THE DOOR AND SEE HOW THE WATER WILL COME OUT BUT THE MAIN WATER VALVE MUST BE OPEN. IF NO WATER COME OUT OR IT CAME WITH LOW PRESSURE. TAKE THE VALVE OUT AND CLEAN IT. MASKE SURE THE MAIN WATER SUPPLY WORKS GOOD.AFTER ALL IF YOU GOT POWER AT THE WATER VALVE WHILE YOU DEPRESSED THE SWITCH AND WATER STILL NOT COMING OUT SO, THEN IT GE TO BE THE REFRIDG WATER VALVE.GO AN A CHANGE THE WATER VALVE

Our GE side by side model GSS25SGRE is leaking water toward the front of the unit. We have pulled it out to see if it was condensation and that is not the problem. At times there is a lot of water that...


okay, my name is marclavoris, what happens is your refrigerator goes into defrost, the heaters comes on and melts the freon off the coils, the water goes down in the drain, which you will see on the freezer side at the very bottom of freezer, you may need to take off inside back panel to access the hole. it is clogged up with alot of debri, so when it is backed up, it overflows under your bottom tray, it then goes into defrost again and it pushes water on your floor. To solve problem, clear the drain in the freezer

I have water leaking on the floor due to a clogged defrost drain (probably) but I can't locate the drain on either side. Checked under the bottom compartments on both sides. Water is turned off and still...


You have to take everything out of the freezer side and remove back panel. There are 2 white hex screws around where the second shelf normally is. Top half (where fan is) comes off first, then bottom half comes off (it may be stuck if coils are frozen, let defrost a little). You will see stainless steel drain pan below coils. Also could be ice maker water supply or water chiller behind lower drawers on refridge side.

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 .

Moisture dripping from temperature control hood model KTRS21MFAL0


possible that condensation drain line is clogged. This line drains the water from the freezer when it goes into defrost to a small pan loscated above the compressor where when it gets to the pan the heat from the compressor running evaporates the mosture.
