Here's an exploded diagram of your freezer compartment:

The defrost drain is the round hole in part 232 of the diagram. Clear the line by thawing the defrost drain. BTW, you won't be able to see the drain very well, especially if it's iced up. The easiest thing to do would be to unplug your refrigerator, open the doors and let it thaw overnight. If you can't do that, take the food out of the freezer and thaw the drain with a hair dryer.

Good Luck!

Plugged drain


Need to completely defrost freezer. hot rags, hot water, paper towels, etc. Until you get all the ice out you don't have a chance of unclogging the drain. Could be just ice clogging it too which in that case hot water will solve that as well. If it's something else clogging the drain, I've used a mini bottle brush to unclog them or even a stiff piece of solid wire.

I have an older GE Profile, the doors are side by side. Freezer on the left and fridge on right. How do I unclog the drain so water stops leaking on floor at same time every night?


2 things..
1. you have a clog in the line. if you do it has to be blown out with compressed air.
2. or your line has ice in it..you will have to defrost.

blowing the line first maybe the way togo

Ge profile leaking water from bottom of appliance


if you have ice on freezer floor, then you likely have a clogged defrost drain. the meltwater from the evaporator can no longer reach the condensate pan under the unit. Unfortunately, the only way I know how to unclog it, after removing all the ice, is to blow compressed air from the freezer into the drian, to force out the debris.
if you have no ice on freezer floor, then from my experience, the problem is due to a dried, brittle and cracked water line for the water dispenser. Pull the fridge out from the wall carefully, you will see a machine compartment cover at the bottom. If this cover is only half as wide as the unit itself, then due to the proximity of the water valve to the compressor, the water line is very well known to crack. You will have to replace the 5/16" water line from the valve solenoid to the water tank located inside the refrigerated compartment.
If neither of these scenarios cover your problem, i would advise seeking a competent repairman. If you are in chicagoland, I can help, otherwise no.

Have a TFX26ZPDA that occassionally leaks from front freezer corner. notice of leak anywhere, but find water under the fridge on the floor (facing fridge left bottom)..........why is this


I would check the bottom of the freezer. If its a solid block of ice then you have a frozen drain line. You may have to remove the back panel to access the drain or on some models there is a gap there its located in the back. If you take a turnkey baster and fill it with hot water and keep shooting it down the drain line it should eventually thaw out. The water is coming from your evaporator coils when they defrost.

Hope this helps _MJ_

Refrigerator keeps defrosting and depositing water in fridge.


if your food is staying cold your fridge is working fine,you probably have a blocked drain.you will find water under criper draws and maybe leaking out on floor,take off the back freezer wall and take out floor, melt out the drain and remove all the ice on freezer floor,now you have to clean out the drain,i use a steamer that you can buy for like 40 bucks,it's a shark super steamer,it will clean out all the slime that builds up in the drain line or you have to snake out the drain line with a plastic tie or something,when you think you cleaned out the line pour hot water into the drain and if the water goes down you know you unclogged it,you can buy a heater probe that installs down the drain and wraps around the heater so the line can't freeze up again,if this is not your problem you can advance the timer in the fridge side on the ceiling by turning it with a screw driver until it comes out of defrost and if it was sticking or not coming out of defrost on it's own change the timer the new part number for your timer is 2183400 hope this helps

How do I unclog defrost drain on a model TBX18W?


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.

How do you unclog the condensation drain on a GE gss25wgma model refrigerator? have water pooling and freezing on the freezer floor, spilling out onto the floor within days after removing it. Thanks!


usually the drain hole underneath the evaporator in the freezer section can restrict with anything from ice to bugs. take a wire hanger and try to run it all the way down into the drain pan. if you have ice then try to poor cool water over it to defrost ice. then use hanger
