I have a puddle of water that keeps forming on the bottom of my frig. Its a GE over under type. I have the setting set on near the lowest for the bottom, and set almost all the way for the freezer.

Is the drain blocked? If so, by what? Ice, food?

Check and make sure everything is clean in the back and there is no Ice built up on it. Also you may want to put in your title


Paging DR. Frige. That seems to get all appliances fixed and quickly. Just whatever you do Don't spell Frige like FRIDGE.

No need to bother the guy, its a blocked drain. Looking inside your box, and there should be some type of bulge, it is probably removeable. Use hand and gentlely pull on it, should come out wash and clean the line and you'll be good. My mom paid for a service tech for this and costed $50.

hmm, no plug found, is it in the back of the frig, or where?

Hello. Look in at the roof of the refrigerator sectionin the back... center. All refrigeration is done in the freezer. When it defrosts, the water goes down (In most cases) In a drain cup. sometimes its behind the control box.

Let me know how it goes and/or IM me if you need more help further than that.

We'll get it fixed.

There is a vent style drain in the front, is that it? Oh and thanks for you previous help on the dryer, you was correct with popping the back and cleaning it out. I gave that set away to friend in need, the house I bought was already equiped with a newer set.

Thats not a vent style drain thats to help the Evaporator fan put air to the front,remove all your food from the freezer ! Then with a philps screwdriver remove the four screws that hold down the lower plastic freezer floor panel!

Reach in and lift up on the fan cover(be carefull not to break the styrofoam down draft tube)then take the back plate off the freezer(two screws) lift this out1

You will see the freezer coils and at the bottom you will see an alluminum-paper type drip pan,in the center you will see a drain hole!

Lift the drip pan out and look for Ice,small peas,or anything that might have gotten into that hole!!!

That hole is a drain tube that runs (inside the frame) of your refrig and down the lenght of it right down next to your compresor(into a plastic drip pan that lets the water evaporate)!

I have had sometimes to cut this tube at the jay bend to run bailing wire or other things up the drain tube to remove coffee grinds ,ect!!

After you get the drip pan out try a hair dryer or hot water first(before attempting surgery)!!
