Question about Refrigerators

Open Question

My GE PT122MFMARBB Profile, top freezer, refrigerator is leaking water from the top/rear of the refrigerator compartment at the air supply housing bolted there. I suspect it is freezer condensate being redirected by a plugged drain line but I cannot locate that line or a schematic to detail it. Will the line be obvious from under the unit so I could run a wire "up" it in an attempt to clear it? Mike

SOURCE: locate evaporator condensate drain tube

next remove the evaporator fan cover and under the evaporator will be a silver tray with a hole in it this is the drain for the defrost systems and some times they get frozen the best way to clear them is with a eureka 350 hand held steamer you can get at Lowe's fairly cheap you can also find about 1000 other uses for it a round the house

SOURCE: Plugged defrost drain line in KitchenAid Refrigerator KTRS22KHBT00

If the freezer is on top then empty out the freezer and remove the bottom and back liner of the freezer compartment usually phillips screws. In the back you will see the freezer coils along with a defrost element. Below these two items u will see a drip tray that collects water from the coils on defrost cycle, in the center of the pan will be a drain hole that connects to a hose that leads to a pan under the refrigerator.Normally the water is collected there and evaporated. The hole in the tray in the freezer is clogged. Thaw it and clean it until you can pour water in it and it goes to the pan down below. please rate me
algae, bread ties andf other thing mysteriously get in there and clogg it

SOURCE: how do you unstop the drain line

Remove the freezer back wall and lower panel. Remove the visible ice. Use a hair dryer to defrost the drain hole in the rear trough.

SOURCE: Freezer leaks water even after water supply turned off

Remove the food from the lower portion of the freezer and remove the 2 screws which hold the rear freezer panel on . Remove the panel and use a hair dryer to defrost the ice built up over the drain . Once you see the black drain hole , concentrate on defrosting the hole . Once defrosted , the ice water will drain into the hole . I would use a small hose inserted into the drain and blow thru , to remove any debris built up inside the drain . Reinstall the panel and food .

Ge profile fridge side by side makes only 8 ice cubes per day


Good day,
Assuming the temperature in the freezer is normal. 10 degrees or less. then it should be one of the 3 items here.
1. Partially plugged filter.
2. Water valve in the back bottom of the machine failing to open properly.
3. Partially blocked supply line from the house or it's connection fittings which ar more common than the line itself.

As well, if the water fill valve has a small leak on the off cycle, the fill tube running from the outside back of the machine that supplies water to the ice maker cavity may have ice starting to cause a blockage.

Water is leaking from under the freezer into the refrigerator section, Is there an easy fix for this.


This is a common problem found with that model. Link below shows you how to solve it. It appears with what you said is the water is coming from the freezer compartment. If so then it can come from 2 things. A frozen defrost/cogged drain or your ice maker is leaking. Let me know how to refine your problem closer. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Our ge profile is leaking water above the icemaker, help


Sounds like the inlet water valve for the icemaker is not shutting off 100%. That would result in either A.) a block of ice plugging the tube where the water passes through from the outside of the freezer into the freezer compartment, or B.) an ice waterfall in the freezer into the ice bin and/or down the back wall of the freezer compartment.
Solution to either: replace water valve and remove ice with the aid of a hair blower.

Water leaking - GE Profile Refrigerator, Model: TPX21PRX


Check to see if the drain at the bottom of your freezer is plugged. When the refrigerator goes on defrost, the water has to go somewhere. Look below the coils in the freezer section and see if there is ice in the drain.
