Leak
« on: July 17, 2013, 07:04:52 PM »
I have an older ge fridge.Model number is   tbx22jasmrad.   Its been running great but last week I found  a puddle if water under it. thought that it may have been an ice cube that drops from the freezer on the floor.I clean it up and now this week there is another puddle underneath the fridge.I vacuumed the back and underneath of it but I can't find a drip pan on this model. I don't know where the water is coming from.

In the back is the drain trap connected to the drain tube.  Turn the drain trap 90 degrees counterclockwise and pull out.  Take it to the sink and run water through it until the water runs clear.

That's weird.  It shows up on the parts breakdown, #315. The drain pan should be back by the compressor but now I'm not sure I'm looking at the right fridge.
