Usually if a refrigerator is holding water this means that the condensate from the freezer is not going down into the pan in the bottom, the water has to go somewhere so it ends up in your refrigerator. Find the drain line in the bottom and try some how to blow it out, if you can do this and clean the pan you should be ok.

Water leaking in refrigerator and floor of a 1997 GE top freezer type,model numberTBX22P1


As the only source of water is condensation or melting food, I would check to see if there is a drain hole at the bottom back of the fridge. This hole is to drain any water into the back of the machine where it evaporates. Use a pipe cleaner or similar to poke the muck through the hole and the water will drain away. Keep this hole clean every time you clean your fridge.

Water leaking on floor,it's a 1997 GE top freezer type


The evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the inside of the freezer at the bottom of the rear cover.

The freezer part of an GE refrigerator is leaking water


Probably the defrost drain is plugged. Flush out with hot water. A turkey marinade injector works pretty good.
