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.

Where is the draining hole in a ge profile model tbx25pa refrigerator with top freezer


Underneath the cooling coil (evaporator) located in the freezer, there is a drain pan with a heater to warm it during the defrost cycle. The drain opening is probably blocked by ice or debris.

Ge model number tbx21jaxerww. Water collecting under vegetable bins


Hi,
The water building under the veggie bins problem is usually a result of the drain under the evaporator coils being clogged with either ice or debris.
The get to the drain, the shelves and sometimes the bins will need to be removed, then the back panel will need to be removed. There usually are a few screws on each side that hold the panel in place...
Then look for the drain right under the coil....if possible run a wire down the hole to make sure it is open to the pan underneath.
If it is frozen then a wire can be used to keep the drain open...here is a tip about how to do that...

Water is collecting under fruit and vegetable bins and then leaking out onto kitchen floor.


sounds like a problem with defrost drainage system. would need model #. older GE refs had problem with rust holes in drain trough. how old is it? do you see any rust on back wall of ref? newer refs had problem with drain hole freezing shut and heat probe had to be installed to prevent it from freezing shut.

Model TBX21KLK water pooling UNDER vegetable bins


Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.

Water collects under the vegetable bins but there is no sign of water anywhere else.


The defrost drain inside the freezer , behind the back wall , is frozen . Remove the food , then remove the rear freezer panel , If you have an icemaker , it too , will have to be removed . Use a hair dryer to melt the ice layer below the coils . Once you see the drain hole , defrost the hole , hot water helps sometimes . Once the hole is defrosted , use a small tube inserted into the hole and blow thru it to clear any debris inside . Reinstall removed parts and problem solved . Easy repair .

Water under vegetable bins, no water in drip pan under refrigerat


If this is a top mounted freezer the drain under the evaporator in the freezer section is iced up. You will need to take the back panel in the freezer off, to get to the evap. Defrost the ice with boiling water, then a heat probe will need to be attached to the defrost heater and down through the drain hole, There is a kit for this procedure.part # 819043

Refrigerator has water underneath vegetable and fruit bis. It seems like an air flow situation


We found that the drainage for the defrosting was plugged. The water from the freezer drains from a hole that's on the top of the fresh food unit. There's a gutter that shunts the water to a tube that runs to a tray underneath the refrigerator. The tray was bone dry. So we unscrewed the gutter from the top of the fridge, and yes, it was plugged. Some Scrubby bubbles later, the plug was done. We reinstalled it, and now we don't have water underneath the vegetable/fruit bins.

This is for the GE TBF15DC For other models, your mileage may vary.
