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.

The label on my frozen turkey says it is good till March of 2016 does this mean even if its thawed it will still be good till that date?


Hi Ronnie:
- If it has been sitting unfrozen in your fridge for more than 2 days I'd personally not be eating it.
- Likewise, if you cook it, it should be eaten right away.
- Re-freezing uncooked is not considered safe food protocol.
- Freezing cooked in serving size portions and only thawing when you're going to heat and eat is usually safe.
Hope this helps.

I have never had a slow cooker in my life and found this one in a garage sale without the manual. How does it work?


Yes you can use any cheaper cuts of meat or chicken and yes less liquid is used in slow cookers. add hard veges n use green veges for end of cooking time. cook for 6 or 8 hrs on low. Yeilds ecellent results. Find slow cooker books for great meals n desserts. I use mine every week.

Water accumulating inside fridge bottom make GE Model #gta18pbnaww


That's normal especially if you tend to leave the door open alot. Moisture from the outside air condenses and drips to the bottom. Also, if the refrigerator is automatic self-defrosting it will melt ice collecting around the refrigerator and the resulting water will collect at the bottom. Check under the food drawers for a drain hole. If it is clogged, clean it out. If it doesn't exist, periodically sponge out the bottom under the drawers.

You have a defective thermistor and damper control in the fresh food or a bad control board.
Check the thermistor first.
Also, adjust the return air damper at the bottom left side of the fresh food sction to warmer.
