Question about GE Profile 19.0 cu. ft. Top Freezer No-Frost Refrigerator TBX19PABWW

2 Answers

I have a GE Profile TBX19PAYBRWW, there is water dripping on the inside of the refrigerator and collecting under the vegetable bins and then eventually runs out the front of the door. What can I do to fix this? Right now I have dish towels under the vegetable bins and also onthe floor in front of the refrigerator. I can not afford a new one or the cost of having a repairman come to the house. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

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.

OK, there is a dranage tube located somewhere at the back or so, and it is probably cloged or piched. Remove your contents of the fridge as necessary, located the tube, check it out, and clean/unpinch as required. That should get things flowing again.

The drain hole is inside the freezer. you have to take the back panel off to get to it and thaw/clean it out. if this drain stops up it will cause water to run down the back wall of the refrigerator down to the bottom. you can pull the refrigerator out from the wall and see the plastic tube coming from the back of the freezer.

I have water puddling up under my Vegetable bins


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.

Water is leaking in the freezer underneath the vegetable bin. Anybody knows what the problem maybe and how to fix it?- GE MAKE 685 ENERGYSTAR


I believe your defrost condensate drain has a blockage of ice and will need to be defrosted and clean the condensate line from the freezer to the condensate collection plate below your refrigerator. Most times the blockage begins slowly until the opening of the drain hole under the evaporator freezes itself shut. Below is a link to some solutions I have collected over a period of time. Also has a short movie that makes the repair look simpler. There are many reasons for this happening for example water leaking from a water supply line for the dispenser or ice maker, a crack in the defrost pan, water leaking inside and draining through the refrigerator cabinet, but most are caused by a defrost drain line blockage. Below is a link that may be helpful so try to take it all in and use the parts that most refer to your specific problem, Thanks Sea Breeze

Water collects under the vegetable bins but there is no sign of water anywhere else.


The defrost drain inside the freezer , behind the back wall , is frozen . Remove the food , then remove the rear freezer panel , If you have an icemaker , it too , will have to be removed . Use a hair dryer to melt the ice layer below the coils . Once you see the drain hole , defrost the hole , hot water helps sometimes . Once the hole is defrosted , use a small tube inserted into the hole and blow thru it to clear any debris inside . Reinstall removed parts and problem solved . Easy repair .
