GE Profile Side by Side (Not Stainless)

We are having water build up in the bottom of the freeze. We've disconnected the water supply but still having water which builds up, then freezes and starts puddling on the floor.

Can't find a pan to empty and the drain tube appears to be clean.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Re: GE Profile Side by Side (Not Stainless)

Remove the panel in back of the freezer compartment and clean your defrost drain. It is plugged and overflowing when it goes into defrost. You will see it when you remove the panel. It is probably frozen over so take the ice out of it then run a flexable wire down into the line (nothing to hard or you may pierce or pop the line off) to clean out the drain hose also. Then pour some water into the drain trough (about a cup) making sure it flows freely out. Then remove the front grill (sometimes called a kick panel) at the bottom front of the unit and pull your defrost pan out and check if it has water in it. That will solve your problem.

No water from dispenser and ice

you can disconnect the water line on the bottom of the door behind the kick panel then test the water dispencer if water comes out of the line then there is a blockage of frozen water in the tube in the door.make usr eto disconnect the water line coupler completely
if no water comes out then there is a chance the main water supply valvle is bad. in rare occassions the water lines inside the fridge can in the door can be defrosted by using a blow dryer and blowing air inot the bottom and top of the tube however this process takes some time.sometimes using a long piece of weed eater line and pushing it through the tube can sometimes free up the ice as well this als take alot if time.

I have a ge gsl22wgph and the refrigerator side is not is not getting cold enough and the freezer side is not freezing. What is the problem?

First look at back wall of freezer toward the bottom and see if you have frost build up on the wall. If you do the problem is most likely the defrost heater and you will need to remove back wall of freezer, melt the ice from the coils and then change the heater at the bottom of the evap. coils.

The water from the door of my GE Profile fridge doesnt work consistently. Sometimes it does and sometimes is does not provide water. It has started dripping inside the freezer leaving icicles.What to do???

Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman";} Your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is probably leaking. disconnect the water line coming out of it and see if you have a slow drip. Try the dispenser to see if it's just drips after use.
You have two points where you can check the dispenser water. At the rear where the water supply comes in is the water inlet valve. If you disconnect the dispenser water line and then see if the water comes out when you try the dispenser. You should hear the valve work when you try the dispenser. If you don’t hear it there is a dispenser actuator switch problem. If you do hear it but water doesn’t work here there is a valve or water supply problem. If it's normal, disconnect it at the bottom of the freezer door and try again.If it's normal here it may be frozen in the door. If this is the case open the door till it thaws. A blanket over the opening will prevent thawing of all the food.
