    The refrigerator is not cooling, after a GE repair man cleared the drainage duct last week for the same problem.

    Hi,
    I have the same problem as the previous person and wanted to try your fix. When you say 'defrost' do you mean the refrigerator and freezer, or just the freezer?

    I have a problem with this area filling with water and freezing over the drain about every other month. The ice builds up until it stops the fan and I loose cooling to the fridge. I have to pour hot water on the ice to melt it. this sucks does anyone know how to fix this problem for good??

    I appreciate the clarification...our freezer is up on a pallet, so it's very hard to move from the wall for me. Of course, you do mean to go to the outside back of the fridge (not the inside back correct?) ; I can't see what's back there at this point. It is also "knocking" when it turns off....hope this is the same problem and the clearing will fix it!

Clogged Freezer Drain it is. To clarify, pull out the fridge, remove the smaller square metal panel (about a third of the way up the fridge in the middle) with 4 screws. Behind it is a black drain pipe system. Remove two screws and remove drain pipe (takes some pulling to detach the seal). There is a silver 3" long pipe that goes into the freezer itself. Remove this, clear it and replace. Take the black pipe and pluming, remove pluming block from the black pipe and blow through it. Run warm water through it (most likely where the clog is) then before reconnecting it to the black pipe, blow through the black pipe to make sure there is no clog there. Reattach pluming, screw it back in, replace the panel and there you have it!

    These directions are FANTASTIC!!! I followed the directions and did exactly as recommended. After unplugging the fridge, and opening the metal panel I found a blockage in the narrow plumbing block area, cleaned it and cleared the blockage and then poured hot water with some clorox through the black pipe. Amamzing. Just saved a couple of 100 at least! Time to party!!!!!
    Thanks, thanks, thanks!!!!!

You have a clogged freezer drain. Remove shelves and baskets. Defrost. Remove back covers. The drain will be below the cooling coils. Use some sort of pipecleaner to clear the clogged drain. Be careful not to push to hard you could push off the drain tube Once clear flush with a couple cups of hot water. Reinstall back covers, shelves and baskets. No more puddle.

On the back of the fridge, remove the square panel that has a plastic pipe coming out the bottom, then remove the screws that mount that pipe to the fridge (the pipe mount is also glued to the fridge with rubber sealant, so gently pry it loose).
The clog is probably in the short zig-zag section that the long pipe connects to (since that's the narrowest part), but also check the short metal pipe behind the mount, and the long plastic pipe.
When you put everything back together, make sure you put the bottom end of the long plastic pipe back where it was originally (this will ensure that dripping water evaporates correctly), and also put a fresh circle of silicone sealant around the pipe mount before you screw it back on (that way you won't have leaks coming out of the back of the fridge).

GE TBF17PC top freezer water under vegetable


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 comming out of the freezer at times and a pool below the bottom shelf.


You drain has frozen up probably because of a clog. Take the bottom door out and right at the rear bottom of the freezer back in the middle you sill see a drain. When the freezer goes in deefrost the frost will melt on the evaporaterr lines and must go down under the freezer yours does not and when the freezer comes on that water freezes. next time it defrost it heats that ice and the melted water come out the front of he door. clean that drain.

Water leaking below the freezer unit


I have a GE side-by-side refrigerator/freezer and have had the same problem with water pooling at the bottom of the freezer and running onto the floor. The solution is easy. There is a drain tube just behind the pull out drawer at the toward the bottom of the freezer. When that tube get's plugged, it does not allow for water to drain out into the drain pan. To solve the problem, first remove any ice build up from the bottom of the freezer and from around the drain tube opening. Then pull the freezer away from the wall and remove the cover from the bottom of the appliance. You will see a drain tube on the bottom right side. This is the tube that is plugged. Simply use a turkey baster to squirt warm water down the tube from the inside of the freezer (or anything that will allow you to squirt water into the drain tube) until water flows from the tube into the drain pan. It usually takes me 3-5 times to clear the line and once it is cleared, I run a little additional water through the line to make sure it's cleaned out well. The repair is simple and only take about 15-20 minutes.
