    SOrry it took so long... couldn't figure out exactly where drainage/leakage came from. It was the drainage tube in the back, that was supposed to drain to the tray... what I couldn't see was some bacterial blockage in the tube in the bottom of the "u trap"... preventing water from getting into the tray...
    Thanks for the help. I wouldn't have known where to start looking!

This may be water from the defrost cycle. if this drains to tray over compressor, check tray is not too full (water evaporates from heat of compressor) otherwise defrost water will go to a seperate container which may have a split or is overflowing. fault can also be caused by poor door seals which would produce too much ice on evaporator pipes

I have a GE model TPX 24BPBA WW and have a water leak on my floor. I disconnected the icemaker water feed and leak stopped. What's wrong

do you live in an area where there are rodents such as mice ? if yes there is a possibility that they have eaten the plastic water line that feeds from the ice maker water valve to the ice maker itself . when they get thirsty you would be surprised what they will actually chew through to get water. regardless the cause, you probably have a broken water line between the ice maker water valve and ice maker unit .

GE Profile with water leaking. Does not seem to be a slow leak. More like an intermittant "dump." Water on floor and refrigerator shelves. Thanks!

Look under the refrigerator and locate the defroster water drain pan. There should be a tube running down the back of the refrigerator which drains water into this pan.

If this tube or other parts of the defroster drain system gets blocked, water can get diverted before it reaches the drain pan.

12 yr old ge refrigerator leaks water on kitchen floor occassiona

common issue.....sounds like a drain clog in the freezer compartment above. remove the freezer rear panel and totally defrost the evaporator area, directly under the evap you see( under all taht ice) a small drain hole that has become frozen over, try defrosting with either a hair dryer( not a heat gun too much heat youl melt everything) or by pouring hot water donw the drain until you get a free flow of water down the tube. after its clear reassemble and you should be fine

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.

its possible that your water tank has frozen up, try turning the refrig off and leave the doors open for about 10-15 mins and try it again. if that works just reset temp controls a little lower..
