Water puddle forms on the floor in front of my GE TBX18SISERWN frig


lokk under the crisper draws,if there's water under them you have a blocked drain in the freezer.if there's no water under the crispers check the pastic water lines going to the water valve and the ice maker.if it's the drainyou have to pull everything out of the freezer,remove the inside back wall of the freezer and melt out all the ice with a hair dryer then you have to clear the drain,i use a steemer to do this,you can use a turkey baster or anything will push air down into the drain hole,pour hot water into the hole and when the water goes down the drain you'll know it's clear.before you start you can advance the timer into defrost to help melt out the ice or shut down the control or unplug it,you don't want it to be running while you take it apart.hope this helps you figure out where the water is leaking from.

The inside of freezer is leaking from back wall - there is no ice maker. water that leaks is freezing and taking up space. what can be causing this


the drain line is clogged causing the ice build up .the frig has to defrost every 6 to 8 hours so every time it defrosts is when it will leak ..you will have to defrost the frig manually ..turn it off. open the doors. let it defrost. remove the thick ice on the bottom ..after its defrosted take the bottom an back panel off.. un plug frig first !! drainline is in the back in the middle of the freezer. unclogg it hot water or shop vac be carefull good luck!! drain line should go to a pan under the frig, in the back make sure it drains before putting back together

Whirlpool gold refrigerator leaking under neath on the side


If its leaking all the time you could have a problem with the water supply line (if it has an icemaker)Or the solenoid valve (water valve) that opens to refill the icemaker after it drops (harvests) the ice.Or the plastic water lines that run from the valve up to the icemaker.You should pull the frig out from the wall and check the back for leaks.You could also Just shut off the water supply to the unit and see if it stops.These leeks cause a lot of damage when they go unnoticed for a long time.I would check it out asap.

We have water laying on the bottom shelf every day


Under the evaporator coils is a drain. It catches the defrost water and directs it to a pan above the compressor where it evaporates. The drain clogs and water cascades down the back wall ending up under the crispers. Get a shop vac and open the drain.

WE have an older fridge. Water is now collecting


Good day,
On some of the older models when the refrigerator went thru it's automatic defrost cycle, the condensate water ran down the back wall, under the crispers and out that drain plug you described.
You can verify if that is your model by looking at the back wall of the machine. If there is no drain tube running down the back, then that is the model you have.
If that is the case, just remove the plug. The water should run directly into the drain pan.
Clean the plug and opening and that's it.

At the top of the frig where the cold air blows into a small "vent" is it suppose to still have styrofoam the inside of the small "vent"? PC Water is leaking into frig and into veg bends.


most likely the drain is clogged..if it is, the water flows to the path of least resistance, hence, into the air vents and down under the crisper..remove rear freezer panel. the drain pan is located under evaporator. Defrost the drain pan if there is ice in it. there will be a small drain hole. this is where you need to see it gets open via hot water and all will be ok..make sure you hear or see it flowing into drain pan...Bruce Denton, master tech

The back part of the refridgerator inside where the cold air comes out is leaking water and the back inside wall is wet?


You should fine a drain line just below the freezer level in the back. The drain line is more than likely plugged. Check the loop seal down by the drain pan under the back of the refrigerator. It may be restricted at that point. It may require a complete defrost of the freezer to clear the ice formed in the drain from a back-up.
