Still having issues with my GE PTC22SBM freezer. Water is accumulating under the coils, freezing, then affecting the evap fan. I keep reading about checking the drain line, but besides the two holes in the back left which drain into the fridge, where in the world *IS* the drain for the cools? The pan under the cools drains to the center and into a trough which leads to the evap fan, but is there another one? Is so, I can't find it, and I can't find a cutaway/schematic drawing either.

I have a model ET19RKXFW01. The water drain pan freezes in the freezer section and water drains down into the refrigerator section. I have taken out the bottom pan and defrosted the drain pan area in the back so the water drains down to the floor level through the tube to the collector pan. I then have put the freezer back together and the same problem occurs within 2 weeks.

Water freezing up at the bottom of the freezer and periodically leaking out the bottom. Have already taken off the back panel and couldn't really get a chance to see if the drain is clogged. But I poured some water and it did not drain. I had to vacuum the water out. Not sure if it just drains slowly or blocked. But no way to get any further with the drain. Could it be another problem?


It might be that your water connection is leaking,depending on what unit it is. ... Refrigerators

Brand new machine. Just hooked it up. When the water reservoir fills the filling action is LOUD. Once full and the freezing cycle starts, it is quiet as a mouse. Freezes, ice falls, reservoir fills - and gets loud again. Only when the water is filling is it loud. Why?


It is the nose of the water moving through the fill valve . If your pressure is very high try closing the valve supplying the water a bit may help but some noise is normal . If it is very annoying call a tech and have it checked out. ... Whirlpool 21.0 cu. ft. Top Freezer Refrigerator with IceMagic Plus Ice Maker

My maytag side by side model mzd2752gr is leaking water on the floor from the freezer. This model does not have a drain pan. I am sure the drain port in the back of the freezer is not draining, but could it be a problem with the evaporator system that using compressed air to blow through the drain port may cause damage somewhere. One week ago, I replaced the defrost timer and defrost thermostat/heating element due to the freezer freezing up and the refrigerator not cooling. This water leaking pr

Ice was building up in the lower freezer and water was running down on top of the ice and out of the freezer and on to the floor. I assumed it was a plugged drain not allowing the water to go out and then causing it to refreeze. I cleaned the drain tube, but now, a few days later, I see ice building up again. It is not leaking, but I think in time it will. What else can I check. Is it possible that the freezer is somehow keeping itself too cool and freezing the water (from the defrost cycle) bef

Water drips from ice maker and freezes into the freezer compartment-makes a long ice cycle.

There will be frozen water in the area where the storage box hooks into the ice maker too.
