Sounds like you have a clogged drain the water freezes melts during defrost. You have to take the freezer floor out. to clean the drain.

Why is it leaking water onto top shelf


Most modern fridges have an automatic defrost that works by draining into a sort of funnel above the back of the top shelf.
The funnel is connected through the back of the fridge to a rubber drain tube that goes down the outside of the back to a heated evaporation tray under the fridge,
The hose and/or funnel can get clogged with disgusting yucky stuff, and the water spills over the top of the funnel onto the top shelf.
The fix is to clean all the bits. It's usually no big deal to take apart.
I have resorted to blowing through the tube from the bottom end and then cleaning up the mess, and brushing my teeth. Quite revolting but, that's the price I paid to become an expert.

Water leak


First check the seal is sealing tight. To do this use a piece of paper and close the door it should have resistance when pulling the paper out. If all is good your drain is clogged up. To clean this remove the back panel at the bottom you will see a hole about a 1/2' in diameter clean this out with warm water and a turkey baster or a piece of wire if necessary. Be careful not to puncture the tube. The drain tube runs all the way to the bottom to a drain pan. After it is clear run a baking soda water mix 50-50 down the drain to prevent future clogs. Here is a link to accesssing the drain.

Need to open ice despensor cover on refridgerator door the flapper won't close all the way and a small black piece fell out (looks like a weight)


Remove the dispenser cover by gently prying starting at the bottom going round and round a little at a time to prevent from breaking it. When it's off the screws will be exposed to access the other components

Water dripping from freezer onto top shelf of fridge with ice buildup back of freezer


the defroster isn't close enough to the drain to be effective. remove the back wall of the inside of the freezer, remove the excess ice. clear out the ice from the drain using hot water and a turkey baster. there is a kit from whirlpool that uses a piece of metal and a screw around the defrost rod, but I found out that a piece of 14 gauge solid core wire with the insulation stripped off works great too. stick the stripped wire into the drain, 2 to 3 inches, and wrap the rest around the defrost rod.

Tenants have broken every door shelf rack


For the GE refridgerator, the model GTS22 is an incomplete model number. That is actually the series number. Your actual model should be followed by 5-7 more letters, as in GTS22FBPBRWW. The full model number denotes dates, dimension, color, etc. You can find the full model number in one of two places:
A) Upper front left corner of the food compartment
B) Left side of the crisper pan on the food liner (with storage drawer open).

Once you find the correct model number, it is important to decide exactly which parts you need. Each door shelf comes in 3 pieces. You have two end caps (left and right) and then the front piece. For the bottom shelf, the end caps are different than the caps for the top and middle shelf. Also, do you need the dairy door and the butter dish? A schematic drawing can be most helpful.

When you know which parts you need, you can go online to www.partstore.com or call toll-free 866-925-PART (7278).

Water on the bottom shelf of the Refridgerator


Has the refrigerator got a wet inner back?
Ff this is wet, adjust it until this solid ice 'blobs', bt not encrusted, like in a freezer
The refrigerator may not be cool enough and the natural warm moisture allowed into the cool compartment when the door is open is condensing into fluid before it is cooling sufficiently to suspend the moisture as a vapour. If the cool compartment is cool enough, any warm air admitted ill be chilled before it is allowed to condense, keeping the refridgerator dry.
However, the only drawback is that you will have to monitor it to prevent the build up of excesive ice.
Also, whether the refridgerator is either empty of full willaffe the day to day operation.
Hope this helps.

Whirlpool Top Mount Refridgerator is Leaking


the problem lies behind the freezer back wall panel, remove the panel, the ground (green) wire on the top left corner and the icemaker

all the ice build up under the evaperator will have to be removed, a good hair drier works well, direct the air at the center hole in the bottom of the metal panel all the ice out of the center hole will need to be melted out to be a success it will take a little time. you can pour some water down the hole and if you hear it going into the bottom drain pan then the tube is clear of ice.
