GE Profile Side by Side Refrigerator

I have a leak from beneath onto the floor on the left side (facing the unit), it's not a constant leak, however it's becoming more frequent. It causes a poodle on floor approximately every two days. We have a ice maker in opreation, it seems to work fine, the freezer and the frigeration sections appears to working properly. Any suggestions what I should look for?

This is probably the ice maker water feed becoming detached from the back of the appliance. This is a fault of a leaky watervalve or low pressure allowing water to drip into the feed pipe where it freezes building up until the pipe blocks where water pressure causes it to bacome detached. Change the water valve and refit the pipe ensure there are no airleaks into the freezer.

I have an 8 year old GE Profile Side by Side TPX24PB Refrig that is leaking water in the freezer, but not the refrigerator. There is a slab of ice on the freezer floor, eventually water runs onto the...


The drain is clogged. Remove the bottom bin out of the freezer. Once done you should see a trough at the back. This trough will be filled with ice, remvoe the ice. Then you have to clear the drain. The best way I know of to do this is to force hot water down the drain with a turkey baser untill water flows freely. Then mix baken soda with water and pour it down the drain. http://www.appliance-repair-it.com/refrigerator-leaking.html

GE Profile leaking onto floor


Clean the drain pan and drain line in the back of the freezer section behind the cover underneath the evaporator coil. (hint: use turkey baster with hot water) Make sure water drains when you pour it in. If it doesn't - also clean drain tube on the back of the unit behind the cover. When done - put the tube exactly where it was.
Good luck! :)

Water comes from under drawers on fridge side, leaks onto floor


If leak continued then you must have a faulty cut off valve. Check and tighten valve. Also, check the hose that runs underneath the fridge for cuts or holes.

Water from GE Profile Refrig/freezer drips down back inside freezer wall and fills up, bypasses drain and fills up and leaks into floor.


Hi, Is it bypassing the drain or is the drain plugged? The most common is that the drain hole gets iced up and them overflows onto the floor.
Just wanting clarifcation.

Water leak


There is a problem with the condesation drain being plugged in the bottom of the unit. The water is supposed to drain onto a "condensation pan" under the unit where it typically evaporates without causing problems.

I believe that the solution was to pour bleech in the drain...

Water leaking on floor from under Mod#TPH21PRS;TPH21PBS


I you dont have any water hooked up for the ice maker or for water at the door, about the only thing left is your freezer drain. Look in the back under the freeser side and look for a drain... see where it drains.. over flowing? anyway water could get out from where in drains to?
