Question about Refrigerators
GE TBX22PIBRRWW Profile Refrigerator
I have water puddling up under my Vegetable bins inside the refrigerator compartment. Every where else is dry, like behind and under the Frig. Could there be a blockage when draining after a defrost cycle?
Thank You, Best Regards:Richie
Our fridge had the same problem with water under the crispers. My husband removed the slide out bottom out of the freezer section and exposed the galvanized trough that drains the defrost water into the drainage tube that goes to the tray under the refrigerator. Hallelujah! the galvanized trough was rusted through and allowing water to drip into the refrigerator instead of the drain hose. I have not found the trough on any parts lists so he is patching it with putty.

Yes, Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use
and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater
comes on to melt the frost. 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.
