You have 4 screws holding the control panel up , in the refrig section . Remove those screws and the panel drops down . Pull foreward and the hole in the back wall is the drain hole . Use a piece of small hose , insert into the hole , and blow thru to clear . ALSO , use caulk around and thru the control panel before reinstalling it , as the styrofoam could have shrunken , allowing defrost water to drip into the refrig section .

Show a picture of the drain tube so I can access it with the back of the refrigerator off


There should be a tube, that leads to a defrost pan, under the box. Follow it up to the freezer. If the freezer is still freezing, you may never get it unclogged.

Need help to unclog a drain on a GE Profile Bottom Freezer Refrigerator Model PFSS6PKW/PFSF6PKW. Specifically, where does the drain end? Behind the freezer & how to access it? Also found eroding t


You should be able to see where the drain tube comes out over the drain pan. Get some thin wire and run it down the tube and when it comes out in the drain pain, tie something onto it like a small piece of cloth and pull it back up through the drain tube to swab it out. The tape is no big issue, if you want to do something about the rust, there is a product that autoparts stores sell that turns rust into a hard, rigid metal. Or you can use a blow drier to make sure it is dried out and then spray rubber under coating on it.

Where is the drain llocated and how do i unclog it?


The drain is always under the freezer coils. On a lot of side-by-side models you can see the drain without taking anything apart just look at the bottom back of the freezers. On some side-by-sides and all top freezers you will have to remvoe the cover off the freezer coils to access the drain.

Once you access the drain remove all ice that is on top of the drain. Then use a turkey baser to force hot water down the drain untill water flows freely. The mix baking soda with water and pour it down the drain. Check out this page http://www.appliance-repair-it.com/refrigerator-leaking.html

The defrost drainage appears to be clogged in my freezer. I have removed all of the ice and can see water pooling at the drainage area. I have tried to unclog the drain, but it is hard to access this area....


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Clear the bottom of the freezer so you can get at the drain. then get a turkey baster and fill it with hot water. Insert it in the drain in the bottom and squeeze it cleaning the drain. Several applications will solve the problem, and do not forget the refrigerator side as well.

Good Luck,

Upright freezer


the water is coming from the freezer when is defrosts. the drain line is in the back wall of the freezer and may be clogged up with ice. clean out the freezer and pour some hot water in the very back of the freezer, this will hopefully unclog the drain. if not, then you have to take the back wall out of the freezer to get directly to the drain line. there should just be a couple screws holding it; it is just an aluminum or plastic panel.
 
if you already checked this and think it is a different problem then let me know, i will help you figure it out.

Leaking frig.


  • take out the back wall of the freezer and physically clean out the line. you may need to run a coat hanger or something down the drain to unclog it. also pour some hot water down the drain after you think you have it unclogged.
