GE Refrigerator, ice melts in ice bin, Excessive heat on refrigerator side


Do you see any ice buildup on the back wall of the freezer or behind it?

Ice build up in the freezer


If the water is showing on the freezer side, more than likely you have a clogged drain. This occurs when the machine goes into defrost and the melted ice somehow is prevented from draining and therefor refreezing and blocking the drain for the next defrost cycle. The best way to resolve this is to unplug the machine for atleast 24-48 hours to let all ice melt. Also note on the maytags these days they put a rubber piece called a duck bill on the bottom half of the drain which will also cause this over time. To access this piece you'll have to pull the machine from the wall and remove the lower panel and find the plastic drain and remove the duck bill

Water on floor and ice on freezer bottom


The problem is that the drain hole inside the freezer in the lower back wall is clough and the water from defrost doesn't go through that drain to the evaporative pan in the back by the compresor ,you need to clear thatdrain first meltting the ice in that hole with hot water until it goes through then once in a while (every 3,4 months put bleach into the drain to keep it clear .

GE Profile Side by side- lines from custom cool covered with ice


I can't give you a solution but I can tell you that we have exactly the same situation. The freezer seems to work but we come back and water has dripped from the ice holder and formed a classic stalagtite (or is it a stalagmite?) Obviously something has melted. We have also found items in the freezer melted - yet the digital readout said it was 3 degrees! Arghhhhh. Glenn in Delaware

Our GE artica, 6 years old has freezer temp at 35 degrees , and refrigerator at 50 degrees. Water is flowing from dispenser, as normal but there is no ice. Ice/frozen things in freezer melted and water...


Check the back wall of the freezer for a ice buildup.
If ice is there you have a defrost parts issue.
That will cause the temps you report.
Also, check the freezer fan motor.
Is it running?
Also check the condenser fan motor at the compressor. Is it running?

Refrigerator will not get cold, but freezer works


Make sure your fan is working ,its located behind the freezers back wall. If it is working the vent from the freezer down to the refrigerator may be blocked (usually with ice).With out a fan you have no circulation but your freezer may look likes its working,it may last 3 days.Also if you can move everything out unplug it turn it off w/ doors open untill all traces of ice are gone this will free up any clogged tubes. Good luck.

Water "pouring" from freezer condenser


sounds like drain in freezer is clogged and has iced over

so when unit goes into defrost water leaks into freezer bottom and freezes

you can either shut off fridge for a day and let ice in drain melt
and hopefully clear line

or u can take back cover off freezer section pour hot water in drain pan and make sure drain hole is cleared and draining down to pan

6343ed3.jpg The problem is ice build up on the back wall. The noise you hear is the fan blades hitting the ice. On the back wall water gets trapped, it then builds up over time, and a big ball of ice forms and blocks the fan. Take off the back wall, defrost the build up and cut the insulation off as above. The water will no longer get trapped and the problem will not come back.

Warm fridge, cold freezer


If frost in back wall of freezer it's not defrosting. This will keep cold air from getting to refig,. section. It may require a main board replacement. Or a defrost control replacement.
