Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

I have a GE side by side refrigerator. Model#GSS25VGMD and every day I have to chip an inch of ice off the bottom of the freezer. I noticed water on the inside bottom of the freezer and thought it was the ice maker so I shut it off and turned the water line to it off and that was not the problem cuz everyday I open the freezer door and there is a puddle of water in the bottom that later freezes and turns into a thick layer of ice. Help please!! -STEVE-


Answers :

You have a blocked drain,when the freezer defrosts the water should go down drain but yours is blocked,i use a steamer to do this and you can get one for 40 bucks it's a shark super steamer,look at the back wall at the bottom you will see the drain hole,melt it out with hair dryer and then blow out the drain line with the steamer or use something to snake out the drain,if you use a coat hanger or something watch out because the drain line is pastic,when you think you unblocked the line pour hot water down the drain and if it goes down your done,you might have to take the back freezer wall off if you can't get at the drain hole,good luck,slime builds up in the drain or some thing could be blocking it like a corn kernel or something like that and the water freezes up because it can't drain

The ice maker on our GE side by side refrigerator will not make ice at times. It works after I thaw out the freezer for about a week or so. Seems to have a layer of ice or water at the bottom of the freezer floor. This has happened 2x's in the last 2 months and for the first time yesterday there was a puddle on the floor outside of the freezer too. (the puddle happened right after returning from a 10 days trip and being opened up for the 1st time in that time period.)

My GE Side by Side refrigerator is leaking water inside the freezer section. I discovered a 1/2 inch thick sheet of ice on the bottom of the freezer section. I took a cover off the back about half way down and revealed a copper tube sitting on top of a black plastic tray that seems to have a drain hole towards the back. The plactic tray has water in it (some ice) and it doesn't seem to be draining. Is this a drain? Could this be my problem? Also, if it is a drain, where does the water go? It's n

I have water leaking under freezer side of door. I turned the ice maker off, turned off the water to the fridge, cleaned out the ice behind the panels, and put it all back together. Every couple of days I chip the ice off of the bottom of freezer; if I forget I get a puddle of water on my hard wood floor. The plug is in the drain hole.
