SOURCE: Duct from freezer to frig is blocked with ice, frig warm

give the unit a full defrost then unblock the drain hole. it sounds like the tiny defrost heater element may not be working and is therefore causing excess frost to build up on the freezer evaporator. also check door seals are not holled anywhere.

SOURCE: leaking water

Look at your door gaskets. If they ain't kosher then excessive humidity will build into the frig.

SOURCE: we have condensation inside our frig

Same water leak. Just ordered valve water assembly. I observed it for three days water dripping from the valve water assembly. I hope to install it today and observe again. I will also try to clear up any ice on the drain pipe to the drain pan at the bottom underneath the fridge.

My ge frig side by side the frig side 65 degrees why need help model number tfx22zrxd


You probably have a defrost problem -accumulation of frost on the freezer back panel. check for frost first then ask additional questions.
if no frost exist, check the condenser motor under the fridge and also clean the coils.

My drip pan under the frig over flows with water then on to my floor. both fans work. Air flow from freezer to frig and back seams good. Tube going to drip pan is clean. Seals looks good and clean. MOD...


I had a similar problem with my Whirlpool model 6ED25DQFW side by side refrigerator/freezer with ice maker/water dispenser. Water was slowly pooling under the refrigerator under the freezer section. The defrost drain pipe was not blocked, the condenser fan was running, the drip pan was not leaking.
The source of the leak was found to be the icemaker solenoid block plastic body which had a pinhole leak.
To fix requires either plastic welding, or replacement of the solenoid block plastic body.
To access the solenoid block firstly requires removal of the cardboard cover, located at the lower rear of the refrigerator.

My LG Model LRTN18320WW is leaking water inside frig. on bottom below produce drawer. has occurred since summer. what is solution?


Drain in freezer compartment is plugged.
Mold (fungus) buildup sometimes restricts water flowing into condensate tube in the defrost cycle, and water somehow can enter in the refrigerator compartment and out the bottom of the refrigerator door.
You must clean the condensate tube!
You must remove back cover in freezer. One screw in left upper corner behind plastic screw plug will allow you to remove the cover exposing evapourator coil and condensate drain tube hole below it. Must also remove back cover at rear of refrigerator exposing the condensate drain tube END which may be restricted also.Tube must be totally cleared to allow the water created from defrost cycle to exit to the drain pan in the bottom of the refrigerator.

Water buildup in fridge


Same problem ...same fridge, different serial though.

Drain tube is blocked, but you'll have to take off the back panel inside the freezer, and look at where the drain tube is (usually centre).
the plastic/surrounding opening of the drain tube in our case was starting to rust out, allowing the leak to persist.
special silicon sealant worked for about 1.5 years, but the insert that is inside the freezer should be replaced.

no you can't get an insert they're not available

Water leaks from under the middle but not all the time maybe once or twice per month


condensation normally drains thru a tube at the bottom of the frig to a drip pan under the condenser coil (under the frig) .. the water normally just evaporates from the pan .. if there is too much moisture in the frig, that usually means a door is ajar (not closing completely) or the seal on the door is not sealing properly .. warm moist air from the room getting in will cause too much condensation .. the drip pan may overflow ... you should check the drip pan for damage (clean the condenser while you are down there) .. also check the tube that carries the condensation (back bottom of the frig) .. it has a one way valve (lets water out only) that becomes stuck sometimes and needs cleaning.. if there is a large amount of moist things in the frig then that an cause the problem as well .. just put those things in plastic bags or containers to eliminate that problem ..

GE Side-by-Side Fridge only gets slightly cool at highest setting. Won't freeze water.


Have you cleaned the condenser under the frig?
While you are looking there look to see if the condenser fan is running with the compressor.
If the condenser has been blocked for very long or and the fan is not working there is a good chance that that the compressor is bad. Just clean the condenser and hope for the best.

Water condenses on the ceiling of my frigerator.. and collects in the bottom of the frig, the shelves and drawers.. it does not drain outside the frig and the back of the frigerator doesn't appear to come...


Yes, you may have two problems. The seals around the door are defective or the drain to the pan below the refrigerator is blocked or both. I will need you to read a few things that may help you and I am here to help you get this solved. Now because the water is inside the fresh food compartment I believe the drain is blocked in sid the back and rear of the refrigerator. Look at the first link below and see if this applies to you. Then read the second link and ask me questions if you need. Please rate me and Thank You, Sea Breeze

GE refrigerator tfx27zp or 25zp or 22zp not sure.


The drip pan is located under the front of the frig.
FIX
open both doors, remove the panel that is across the bottom of the fridge( there are release tabs over the left and right front corner areas close to the hing sides


after removing the panel you should see a tray that slides on rails under the fridge

remove the panel and inspect to see (use a flash light)if you can see the drain tube


I believe your drain tube is freezing up somewhere inside the frig

If you can determine where this drain tube fishes up through the back inside wall of the frig

remove all of the trays and observe the back panels there should be some type of collector tray

near the frig light Some models have a hot bulb to do the defrost

I suggest that you tun frig off with both doors open take a hair dryer and blow hot air where you think the drain is located to melt any ice and look down in the drain pan to see if it starts draining

Hope this helps

Good luck ( ps cal ge customer service and give model number I bet they have a design poblem

If they do they may have a work around

God Luck
