Question about GE GSS20IEP Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Ge profile side by side model tpx2 4pryfbb serial number ls-2858840

Water collects on bottom of freezer. after 6-8 weeks, it fills the bottom (frozen) but then water starts appearing on floor in front of freezer. water appears to be coming from rear of compartment, as the ice is built up against back wall at bottom (visible only after removing food.

for "water on kitchen floor or on bottom of freezer," troubleshooting section of manual states "drain in bottom of the freezer clogged."

but there is nothing in the manual about the drain, i.e., where it is or how to clean it.

Can you tell me where this drain is?

    Water drips/runs down the rear of the freezer and accumulates on the floor of the freezer as a 'glacier'. I have to remove it about once a week. I thought it was a problem with the icemaker so I disconnected the water line to the refrigerator, but it hasn't changed the problem at all. I'm still trying to figure out where all that water is coming from, since the water line has been disconnected for almost 3 months and I still have to remove a 1/2" to 3/4" thick slab of ice from the bottom of the freezer every week.

    the problem is that the drain pan was clogged with ice the pan is located behind a plastic cover (one screw in center that is located behind the second shelf from the bottom. you will see that the drain pan full of ice. i left he door open for 20 minutess, then removed the ice. at ge's sugggestion, i used a turkey baster to shot hot water with baking soda down the drain hole. problem solved. one week later, however, freezer is not cold enough (15-20 degrees). fridge side is also not very cold. i don't think these problems are related, and I fear that i need new fridge (current one is 10 years old. i don't want to pay repairman for a new condensor or fan.

You have a clogged drain system in the freezer, as the unit will defrost daily, the water can't leave the freezer properly and the water collects. You need to de-ice the freezer and clean out the drain tube at the bottom of the freezer section under the evaporator. Good Luck

Water is leaking out from the bottom of the freezer

Below the freezer coil is a drain trough. Sounds like it is frozen. Use a hair drier to melt it and poor baking soda with warm water down it.

Icemaker leaking

Check two things.

1: see if you have ice buildup in the water inlet tube above ice maker, if you do chance are the water valve is bad, if not,

2: see if you have icicles hanging from bottom of ice maker, if you do you have a bad ice maker.

Either way, will need full model number and serial number both to get you the right part numbers for parts.

GE Freezer Leaking

Open the freezer door, remove the bottom tray, smash the ice on the floor with your fist to remove it. Now get a glass of hot water and pour it into the trough which is at the bottom of the back wall of the freezer. Allow a few minutes for the ice to melt then remove it with an ice pick or scrrewdriver. Once the ice is out, pour more hot water into the trough. Now take a long tube ( an old washer fill hose works perfectly) and stick one end in the hole in the trough. Now fill your mouth with warm water and blow it very hard through the tube. Once the drain is clear, pour some hot water and a very little amount of bleach through the hole.

Not getting water from dispenser in door

if you can get ice but not water from the dispenser then suspect a frozen water line within the door . Check you get water to the connector at the bottom of the freezer door. Sometimes you can clear the blockage by connecting a steamer to the pipe but this will only be a temporary fix . If the pipe has frozen within 6 inches of the dispenser outlet then there is a heater mod that can be fitted WR49X10173
