It's a GE TBX25PASJRAA. Water collects in the refrigerator compartment, a tray placed at the back of the top shelf catches most of it.

I assume it's defrost water that's not going where it's supposed to. I had originally thought the drain line was plugged but when I pulled the fridge out I see it contains a trap with water in it which strongly implies it's not blocked. This is part #315 on this diagram:

Also, I'm not finding any manuals that indicate how to work on it. Do such things exist anymore?

  • @robertwhisler: There's a rigid tube coming down the middle of the back of the unit. I believe it's supposed to deliver the water down by the compressor to be evaporated. Commented Sep 10, 2012 at 21:13

just because the water i making it to the tray outside the fridge doesn't mean the drain isn't clogged. it might be partially obstructed and it can't drain fast enough.

also, i would check the entire drain assembly end to end. it might be that the parts are not fitted tightly and are therefore leaking.

  • What I was saying is that water in the trap means water is getting there (it didn't dry out) and since the rest of it isn't full it can't be plugged. I think there must be a leak somewhere before it gets to the drain. Commented Jul 7, 2011 at 20:32
