How do I get to the collector hole to check for defrost drain pluggage.  Do I have to remove the freezer bottom plate?  Can I check the drain pipe from the rear?

Could the icemaker be the cause of this??

 

Thanks a bunch!!

It is a GE Hotpoint Mod. ctx18eabkrww. ,  S.N. rt549196.  BTW, seems like when I disable the icemaker, the water accumulation in the refrigerator bottom stops.  ????

Thanks

Ah..now we have another dimension to this. What can you tell us about your icemaker?

Mad Mac....Pray to God he's out there....somewhere.

Well, the icemaker seems to be operating OK.  Sometimes it takes a while longer to dump the cubes but eventually it comes through. 

Also, I rechecked the evaporation tray and it is still dry as bone.

Also, some water has occasionall been found in the egg containers on the opposite side of the box from the icemaker.

?????????????????

Perhaps when the ice maker was filling water was spraying out side of the fill tube??

The one time I checked as the ice tray was filling, I saw no water leakage, but I can't watch it all of the time, of course.:D

 

I'm still checking things out!!

Thanks for your indulgence--an update on my "controlled test" observations:

Checking this morning, after NO icemaker operation for two days,  there WAS some water in the bottom of the fridge, and also a small amount in the evaporation tray underneath.  Does this suggest a partially plugged drain, or possibly something else??

 

Thanks again!

Yes, sounds like some of the water is not going into the pan or something in the frig is leaking.

Well, I think "we" have found the problem!!  I opened the the drain tube at the back elbow, and it was FULL of water.  I couldn't blow through it so I removed it and rodded out a bunch of drilling shavings that were stopping the tube up about 90%.  Hopefully this will cure the problem of the defrost water collecting in the bottom of the box.

Thanks to all who helped me on this!!
