Question about GE PTS22SCRBS Top Freezer Refrigerator With Ice Box

1 Answer

RE: Frigidaire Refrig/Freezer

I have noticed condensation water leaking into the refrigerator. I have checked the drain pipe. It does appear to be blocked. I have no knowledge of how to clean it out.
I tried forcing canned air into the drain pipe to clear it out, but to no avail..just got lots of water splashed back at me. Any suggestions?

Try hot water and a turkey baster (or similar squirt device, I got mine at an auto parts store). squirt water into drain. a little messy but a towel or small wet vac should clean it up just fine.

WATER LEAK SAMSUNG RB215LASH


When water is leaking inside of your refrigerator, the problem could be as simple as condensation from humidity or a worn gasket, especially since you purchased your refrigerator used. The problem could also be a clogged drain or frozen evaporator.

To help you determine the problem, along with solutions that you can use, check out Refrigerator leaking water inside for some simple troubleshooting steps. I hope that helps!

Your freezer goes through a defrost cycle and drains the melted ice ,somewhere the drain is clogged or iced up .Look for a little hole or hose coming into drain pan underneath and trace up.Might have to take back off.

My kenmore elite refrig keeps leaking water from what appears to be condensation. It gets so bad that the ice maker door freezes shut and water actually drips on the floor. The freezer is set to 0 while...


The high level of condensation is due to constant opening of the fridge when the frost develops. It is required to defrost off the condensation and if this has an auto mode timer for defrost , then it is possible that it is not working.
The water must drain out to the drain tank but since it is formed out of the freezer the water flows out of the collection tray.

Water leaks from the bottom frequently. I thought it did not have a pan.


I would think that the only sources of water would be heavy condensation draining (which would go into the pan, if you had one) OR a possible leak in the inlet line, IF you have an ice cube maker. I would check the inlet line which probably connects to your refrig at the bottom to a magnetic valve (which sometimes leaks and can be replaced pretty inexpensively) and also the line (usually clear plastic) that runs from the valve up to the back of the freezer. It can also crack and/or leak.
Sometimes, if the refrig is too close to whatever is behind it, that will cause heavier condensation. Sorry I can't tell more from your description of the problem.

Frigidaire fridge leaks where ice maker is on


Your leaking problem gives two possibilities. The water control valve for the ice maker side is defective and while shut off the water will continue to slowly flow and leak into the freezer compartment. The other possibility id the condensate defrost drain is blocked and frozen over behind the rear panel of the freezer and at the bottom of th coils. I believe your defrost condensate drain has a blockage of ice and will need to be defrosted and clean the condensate line from the freezer to the condensate collection plate below your refrigerator. Most times the blockage begins slowly until the opening of the drain hole under the evaporator freezes itself shut. Below is a link to some solutions I have collected over a period of time. Also has a short movie that makes the repair look simpler. There are many reasons for this happening for example water leaking from a water supply line for the dispenser or ice maker, a crack in the defrost pan, water leaking inside and draining through the refrigerator cabinet, but most are caused by a defrost drain line blockage. Below is a link that may be helpful so try to take it all in and use the parts that most refer to your specific problem, Thanks Sea Breeze

Frigidaire refrigerator leaking water inside refrigerator


There is a plastic panel inside the frigidaire looking at the underside of the freezer inside the refrigerator compartment which holds the thermostate dial and the light fixture. remove the four 1/4 in hex head screws holding the assembly. pull the panel toward the front. you will expose the drain hose connection you can let it dangle from the plug wires or remove the panel completely, I worked with mine in place. look at the back funnel shape drain. just in front of that see a rectangular styroform collar which should be snug fit to match the underside. clean and dry all. there is a divider between the two funnel compartments, mine was separated between the plastic and the styroform. I used kitchen and bath tub caulking to seal the gap. and a little around the rectangle shape that fits to the underside. plug the wire back in if disconnected. reassemble the panel. that may fix it. good luck.
