Question about GE Refrigerators

We have an old GE fridge Model #TBX21JI. We keep finding water in the bottom of the fridge under the crisper drawers. It has an auto ice maker. What could be the problem?

    This is all well & good but we cannot find a drain tube inside the fridge or a drain pan or a defrost drain ppan . We turned off the ice maker, it is dripping at the back of the fridge just under the freezer. We can't find a way to get into that area.

    It is none of these problems. We can actually see the water dripping in the back of the fridge just below the freezer.

Hello,

Before jumping to conclusions about why your refrigerator is leaking, do a thorough inspection. Many times, it will be easy to see where the water is coming from and from that point deduce the problem. For instance, water leaking from the back is usually due to an ice maker issue, water from the side of the refrigerator is usually due to a faulty door or gasket, a leaking drain pan,a clogged defrost drain pan.

You need to clean the drain tube and check the ice maker and refrigerator level for water inside the refrigerator.

Take care.

    Hello,

    I think the leakage is from the ice maker. A small leak in the ice maker can be due to a crumpled water line, while
    a substantially large amount of leakage could be due to a major failure
    of any part. In either case, check whether the refrigerator and ice
    maker are leveled or not. If you notice any component is malfunctioning,
    get it replaced immediately.

Normally on the older models the door seals start to fail. If that happens, condesation builds up in the fridge and water starts building up. You will not always be able to see exactly where the seals are perished, but once changed, your problem should be solved. Hope this helps

O have a GE Fridge Model GFSS6KKxass i am having a issue with water accumilatimg under the both crisper drawers not sure what is causing this?


My GE Fridge did the same and the repair man I called said there is a little drain hose that goes from the top to the bottom of the Fridge at the rear see if that hose is plugged. I unfastened it at the top and blew air through it and the water is no longer a problem.

Water in bottom left crisper drawer and under drawer


I'm sorry to say that it sound as though your door gasket may no longer be sealing correctly.

For me, it's simply a task of getting a replacement gasket for that make and model.

To remove the old one you would, simply, peel the inside of the gasket toward the outside of the edge of the door revealing the mounting screws. Remove these screws all the way around and replace with the new one in the same fashion...

The reason that I recommend this is that humid air outside of the refrigerator can seep past a worn gasket and condense on the inside surfaces making its way to the bottom and into those drawers.

Crisper drawers are feezing vegetables.


look down at the bottom crisper and there should be an air control that lets more or less air in from the freezer section. close this control down so that most of the air stays in the freezer. some models may say meats(colder) and vegetables(warmer).

some models the control in the down position opens up the vent more allowing it to get colder and in the up position closes the vent down more allowing less cold air into the refrigerator. you can remove the crisper and experiment with the control.

Water line for ice maker/cold water leaking underneath


Check your connection at the bottom of the freezer door, behind the kick plate. Also pull out your crisper drawers and check the cold water reservior. If this only leaks when the water dispenser is pressed I would try to track the line from the bottom of the freezer door back to where it goes into the refrigerator (behind the crispers) to the cold water reservior.
If you absolutely have to lay this fridge down lay it on it's BACK only. Also be sure to let it stand upright for at least a half an hour before you start it back up.
Good luck with this!!

Hi GE top freezer fridge - 5 years old( no ice


Well for one thing that unit was manufactured 10 years ago. But it sounds like the defrost drain is clogged and the water is running down the inside of the unit. The evaporator (not condenser) is on the bottom of the freezer compartment. The bottom panel of the freezer comes out. They are a bit of a pain to do, but can be done.

Water in bottom of fridge and in crisper drawers


the defrost drain in the freezer is clogged with ice.
empty the food from the freezer, and put through a defrost. you might have to help the fridge defrost with a hair dryer. you may also have to remove the rear panel (inside the freezer) or pending on the model to bottom panel of the freezer.. (usually held in by 1/4" hex screws.)
melt all the ice, and be sure that the drain is clear, and it should work.
