Ronald Coons' answer was helpful, pointing me in the right direction. Sure enough, the drain was frozen shut. I had looked for a drain but didn't see one in the bottom of the freezer, didn't realize it was in the back. Anyway, I also noticed the drain tube sloped UP underneath the fridge, then dropped down into the drain/evaporating tray. That guarantees that there would be water sitting in the tube, ready to freeze. I don't worry about critters going up an empty hose, so I removed the clamp holding the hose, cut some off of the end so the hose can now go DOWNhill from the drain to the tray. If that doesn't fix it, I'll go buy some copper wire and implement the rest of Mr. Coons' solution.

I own a GE side by side refrigerator Model GSS22KGPD WW, Serial AG225890. This the third frig of the same model with the same identical problem. The ice cube dispenser on the door only gives crushed ice when it's working at all. On the inside water drips into the ice bin and causes the ice cubes to fuse together so the auger can't work. I have a solid block of ice on the bottom of the tray. At present I daily empty the cubes, wash the tray and dry well and start over. I have had at least e

I have 10 years old Profile, side by side refrigerator, model TPX24. Today there was water on the floor, ice was melting, and the top part of refrigerator was wormer then the bottom. I defrosted it. water was dripping from the frizer side doors. When everything was dry and cleaned up, I turned the unit on. It looks like the bottom of both feezer & refrigerator are cooler. Top of both is still worm. What could be wrong w/ my unit? Grazyna from Streamwood

I have a Sub Zero side by side model 632. Lately it has been leaking water on to the floor on the refrigerator side directly below the door. There are no broken bottles, containers, etc. The water pan is dry. The hose to the pan is clear. There is no excessive build up of water per se on the bottom of the refrigerator floor [inside the refrigerator under the drawers].
The channel where the water goes when the fridge goes in defrost mode is froze up and will not let the water drain into the pan or a hose is disconnected that leads to the evap pan.Try thawing the fridge out completely bu unplugging it fo ...
I have a Jenn Air model JS48SEDBDA side by side refrigerator/freezer. I have the problem that so many others have where the water and/or ice is running and building up in the back top. The new drip pan with drain and foil heaters was replaced recently as well as the thermostat. The thermister was disconnected per the instructions with the drip pan to create a 6 hour defrost cycle. Whats strange is the drip pan this time didnt appear to be frozen or the drain tube but there was frozen droplets o
Hi.If the evaporator is icing up, then the problem is not the drain pan, but the defrost system. A defective defrost system turns condensation into ice in the evaporator. The only problem with the defective drain pan is that when the evap ...
Maytag fridge, side to side. Model# MSD2757AEB
Bought on Sept. 1999
The bottom of the freezer forms a deep layer of ice; I remove that ice, but it keeps ddoing the same.
The water drips from the bottom grill on the back wall inside the freezer, to the floor of it where it forms the ice.
I would like to have an idea of the price to repair it to decide if it is worth it or not.
This fridge already needed two repairs, about two years ago, that resulted in $400.

Water in the bottom of the freezer that freezes, then the water goes out the door and is messing up my floor. My fridge is a Frigidaire side by side model MRS26LGJ.

Bottom freezer has ice building up because when it defrosts it will not drain out through the back. Ice builds up to a point where I have water draining out the front of the freezer all over the floor. Drip pan remains dry all the time. Had repairman out twice he couldn't figure it out. Boyfriend tried to fix a year ago and the part where the drain was had rotted out and the drip pan worked for the first time since purchased in2004. Drained for a few months and now I am back to the original free

I have a Jenn-Air refrigerator, Model JCD2389DE, and in the last two weeks we have noticed water puddling on the floor in front of the "freezer side" door. We thought maybe the water dispenser "stuck" on but this morning I saw water dripping out. I opened the door and water was running down through the inside of the freezer and coming out through the bottom door seal. The water dispenser and the ice maker appear to be working properly. Please give me your thoughts...
