Hello. Clean the evaporation tray accessable by removing the low front grill. This is most likely the problem area. J.

I have found a block of ice has formed in the back of the fridge below the drainage tube. I looks as though the drainage tube may have a blockage. How can I take care of this.


Hello, My Name is Mike,

Here is what has happened most likely. the time which cause this is dirty coils and vents in back of freezer. The best way to take care of this, unfortunately you have to unplug freezer for a few hours until all is completely defrosted. I know this is a pain, to find else where to out the food. There is no fast fix, because it has to be completely defrosted to begin to solve problem. After a while of it almost defrosting, then open up back, get a shop vac, can of compressed air (or if you have access to air compressor that is good too) and really clean all in the back area, vents, tubes, line, coils etc.. Blow it out, vacuum and so forth. Where the drainage tube is, really blow it out and clean it good. Of course if it is frozen that is hard to do, only thing you can do to speed process is a hair dryer. But careful as water and electric don't mix. And also during this whole process, please make sure your freezer is unplugged not just turned off, but unplugged. Then after everything is real clean, and defrosted, turn back on and should work as normal. Mike

FRIGIDARE FRS26ZSEB: Freezer side, bottom collects ice and then leaks out the door.


If you get ice in the freezer, start checking if the evaporator fan and the defrost system is working.

Try doing a complete defrost, ofthen this can solve the problem.


Cause for ice in the fridge can be evaporator/defrost syste, bad gasket, faulty thermistor.

There is power but the the entire refrigerator is not cold enough. There was also a burning smell behind the fridge.


NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
First I would check cold control. Thats where you turn it off, if your temp is not warm. it can
be defective and not shutting off. If your temp is warm proceed with the following.
I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if FREEZER CONTROL is turned warmer which makes REF. colder or vice versa.
Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath

WATER SPLASHING IN FREEZER AT ICEMAKER
THE FILL TUBE IN BACK OF REFRIGERATOR CAN SLIP
AGAINST THE FILL RESERVOIR CAUSING A PARTIAL BLOCKAGE
OR BECOME CLOGGED WITH ICE.
REMOVE THE ICEMAKER AND INSPECT THE FILL TUBE.
RUN WATER IN TUBE TO ELININATE BLOCKAGE AND CHECK
TEMP IN FREEZER. IF TEMP IS BELOW 0 DEGREES, THATS
OVERKILL AND USUALLY A WASTE OF ELECTRICITY TO KEEP IT THAT COLD, NOT TO MENTION THE FILL TUBE FREEZING UP

I have ice at the bottom of my side by side GE TFX30PRY. It seems to be a clogged drain but I'm not sure where the drain is located on this model


Remove the bottom freezer crisper , and at the bottom of the panel ( it looks like you have a drain trough cover which has to be removed ) , if its not frozen over with ice , youll see a drain hole . Use a hair dryer to defrost the drain until you see the hole . Then continue defrosting the hole until water will flow thru it . Sometimes , hot water helps to thaw the drain . When thawed , use a small hose inserted into the drain , and blow thru it , to clear out any debris in the line .

GE side by side refrigerator smells on the outside!


Mix 1/3 cup of bleach and 2/3 cup of water , and pour down drain tube (rear bottom in freezer section . Too much bleach and the smell of bleach would be circulated by the fan to the room , so be sure to add water .
