Question about GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator
off the power to the refrigerator. Do this by either unplugging the
refrigerator or turning off the power to the circuit where the
refrigerator is installed.
2. Locate the drain tube. If you cannot locate the tube inlet,
try looking in your owner's manual. You can also consult the GE website
for information about the drain tube inlet for your particular model. A
common location for GE models is in the bottom of the refrigerator, but
it may be located elsewhere.
3. Insert the end of a thin plumbing snake into the drain opening. Push the snake in as far as it will go. Move the snake back and forth once it is inside the drain tube to break up any clogs inside.
4. Mix 1 teaspoon of bleach with one pint of warm water. Use a turkey baster or cooking syringe to inject this solution into the drain.
Also, could try this for the drain is behind the back panel in the freezer at the bottom. Sounds like it is frozen over which is pretty common. Will need to remove panel and thaw out drain by running hot water down. You can use a putty knife to break up ice first. Make sure you get all ice around the drain above and below the thin aluminum tray at the bottom. After the drain is free don't be alarmed if you get some water on the floor because the drain pan may not hold all of the water you ran down the drain. Not anything you can do to prevent this on this model.

To unclog the drain you will need to shut the refrigerator down and completely defrost it and unfreeze the drain. Then take a stiff wire and run through the hose to the bottom of the fridge where it comes out into the pan. Some hot soapy water may help flush the **** out...compressed air if you have an air compressor also works good... I use a CO2 tank....the very high pressure works wonders...
Then before starting the refrigerator back up, take and wrap a copper wire around the defrost coil and stick it into the tube to keep it from freezing...
I explain exactly how to do that in this tip...
Water Running in refrigerator from Freezer

Empty the freezer and let it thaw. Once the freezer is at room temperature clean the inside thoroughly. Then take a long zip-tie (or something similar - long, bendy but not soft and without sharp corners) , insert it in the hole and twist it, pull it out, clean the muck it accumulated and put it back. Repeat until the zip tie stays clean. Finally get some sink unclog solution in a syringe - 25 ml should be enough- and pour it down the hole, wait a few minutes then add some water till it starts to leak on the floor from the back of the fridge. If the water pours easily in the hole you will know it's unclogged.
