Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

I have a GE side by side model #tfx22jrba ww and it is leaking. It is wet under the left front corner. I took off the grill to see if I could find the drip pan and see if it was full but didn't see it. Any advise?


Answers :

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.

My Maytag side by side refrigerator has water coming out of it. From time to time, you can see water on the floor which has come from both the bottom right and left side of the refrigerator. I disconnected the water line some time ago and the problem didnt go away. It almost appears to be a defrosting cycle maybe. Maybe the water has no place to go. Is there a drip pan on these refrigerators? If so, is mine possibly full and how do I empty it? I really need to get this taken care of. My

The freezer side of my built-in side by side Jenn-Air refrigerator (JS48FSFXDA) is having the following problem: during the defrost cycle, water is dripping from the ceiling of the freezer onto door shelves/baskets and elevator shelves and forming a coat of ice. From what I can see, it looks like the glass defrost heaters are working fine and melting the frost off the evaporator but the water overflows out of the drip pan and rains down on the shelves. I removed the evaporator drip pan hoping to

My fairly new side by side fridge is draining a lot of water from the hose to the drain pan. When it starts going it drains for a few seconds, shuts off & then repeats til it probably releases a cup of water before it finishes. The pan is getting really full, and taking the cover off I still can't see how to remove the pan. I read maybe it could be a bad valve?

Drip pan.... Thank you for the info, yet I've been under this thing quite a few times and I still don't see any pan or tray or even rails for that matter.

This is the second time the freezer accumulates water and freezers at the bottom of the freezer section of the Admiral HMG67158, 26.6 cu ft freez/refrig.
