SOURCE: GE REFRIGERATOR SPILLS OUT WATER COLLECTED BELOW

Remove the food from the freezer . Remove the rear freezer panel , inside the freezer . At the base in the rear , use a hair dryer and defrost (you'll see a drain hole possibly in the middle of the drain ) . Defrost drain hole until hot water can be poured and go thru the hole . I use a small hose to blow thru the drain hole to remove any debris which could have accumulated inside the drain line .

This is a rather unique refrigerator in that there is a seperate evaportator (cooling coil) for the refrigerator section and the freezer section, where as almost all other refrigerators only have coils in the freezer section and use a fan to blow some of the cold air into the refrigerator section. This design will prevent cross contamination of odors between fresh foods and freezer sections, and allow lower humidity freezer at the same time as higher humidity fresh foods. All good things.

That said,..... you need to take the cover off the back wall from inside the fresh foods section and thaw out the defrost drain locted at the bottom of those cooling coils. If I remember correctly, there are a couple hidden screws, and the back panel needs to be pryed off using a putty knife, I think you will find 4 small arrows / pointers for the spots to pry at. With cover removed, use a turkey baster with warm water until the water flows out the drain.

Check the pipe that drains the water from the avaperator (the thing that gets cold inside on the fridge)
periodically your fridge will defrost and the water should drip through a tube and collect at the rear of the fridge
If the pipe is blocked the water collects inside at the bottom ( under the crisper)

Hello Donna, I am happy to assist you. I understand that water is collecting in your refrigerator. Self-defrosting refrigerators dispose of the water generated during the defrost cycle, usually via a tube or channel that directs the water to a pan at the bottom of the refrigerator. From the pan, the water normally evaporates.

If the tube or channel is clogged or obstructed, the water backs up and leaks into the inside of the refrigerator compartment. Then the water builds up at the bottom, inside of the refrigerator. When the water has built up for a time it may spill out of the front of the door opening. To fix this problem, clear the drain tube or channel and allow the defrost water to flow down to the drain pan.

I certainly hope this troubleshooting tip resolves your concern. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to respond.
