When the freezer goes through the defrost cycle, the water collects in the defrost drain pan and drains into a pan underneath the unit where it evaporates over time. If the defrost drain pan is clogged, the water will fill the pan where it will freeze. Once the pan is full of ice, the water from the defrost cycle will run over the pan and down into the fresh food section. This will require that the drain pan be clean of the ice and the drain tube cleared of ice and debris.
Hope this helps.

Chemical cleaner taste in water and ice from fridge door.


Run it as normal and keep flushing the water through. Place lemon wedges around the inside for the next week. If the problem persists you can buy a proprietory air conditioning system cleaner for cars that disperses inside the unit (make sure no food is left in while using) follow makers instructions. Clean with low pressure hot water spray before using again.

Ge model number tbx21jaxerww. Water collecting under vegetable bins


Hi,
The water building under the veggie bins problem is usually a result of the drain under the evaporator coils being clogged with either ice or debris.
The get to the drain, the shelves and sometimes the bins will need to be removed, then the back panel will need to be removed. There usually are a few screws on each side that hold the panel in place...
Then look for the drain right under the coil....if possible run a wire down the hole to make sure it is open to the pan underneath.
If it is frozen then a wire can be used to keep the drain open...here is a tip about how to do that...

GE Monogram refrigerator accumulating under bin.


Hi do you mean you have water accumulating? If so you might have a leak in your evaporator drain pain, its located in the back of the refrigerator on the inside behind the shelves. Or it needs defrosted possibly a bad defrost thermostat/heater if tihs model has a heater. I would need the model to be more certain, these problems arent too serious.

The drain at the center-base of the freezer freezes shut with ice. Water accumulates on the frig shelves and under the veg bins. Why and what to do? Frig is a Whirlpool 21 cu-ft ET1CHMXKB03 built in 2004.


There is supposed to be a defrost element that goes through the first part of the drain, it may have been pulled out or it may be malfunctioning. After the evaporator defrost cycle the water should drain through the drain tube, since it's frozen up the water just accumulates in the fridge. If you take off the inside panel that covers the evaporator coils (the coils that freeze up) you should be able to see the evaporator defrost element and the drain defrost element. Inspect the drain defrost element to see if it's in the drain tube like it should be or if it needs to be replaced.

Frost in Freezer, front of shelves


Sometimes enough ice will accumulate at the front of the shelves to actually block the door from closing completely. Are you in and out of the freezer often? Moist air that hits the frozen shelf surface will accumulate at the front of the shelves first because that's where it hits first. Check that the freezer is level and plumb not on a "twist". If it is sometimes the door will not seat properly and therefore leave a gap for air to get in. Take a dollar bill and place it in the door seal surface. Close the door and try to slide the bill out from between the door frame and the seal. Do this in several places around the door. If it comes out with little or no friction you may have found your problem. Finally, completely defrost the freezer shelves after removing all the food. Don't poke or dig with an ice pick or screwdriver or you will poke a hole in the tubes and ruin the freezer. You can speed things up with some hot water in a pan placed inside the freezer. Be ready with towels or pans to collect water. Good luck!

Water draining under crisper bins & onto shelves. Try again


Your drain tube is stopped up. Take the panel off in the freezer section and chip away the ice in the pan below the coil. When you get to the drain hole pour hot water in it until it free flows. You will need a towel in the freezer to catch the excess water. Run some extra hot water through it to assure that you clean the drain out good.
