Question about GE Profile PDS22MHR Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
Water pools on the bottom of the freezer. It is coming from the middle of the top wall of the freezer under some sort of protruding cover and dripping doen the rear wall. How do I get to the source and 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!

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).
