How to Find the Drain Line on a GE Refrigerator
If you notice that your GE refrigerator has developed a leak, one of the most likely causes is a blocked or clogged drain line. If the drain line on your GE refrigerator is blocked, the water has no place to go, and that can mean a puddle of water that starts behind the refrigerator and slowly makes its way across your kitchen floor.
Pull the refrigerator away from the wall as far as you can. You need to have plenty of room to work behind the appliance.
Unplug the refrigerator from the wall socket. Move the refrigerator further out from the wall if you can.
Lay on the floor behind the refrigerator. Shine a flashlight under the refrigerator and look for the drain tube hanging down the back. The exact location of the drain tube varies from model to model.
Insert a plumber's snake into the drain tube if it appears to be blocked. Twist the snake around inside the tube a few times to dislodge any sediment or blockages.
