Very frustrating !!. I have a GE bottom freezer that refuses to drain the defrost water...
I have thawed the ice several times and cleared the drain tube.
The issue is that the frozen water near the drain hole does not thaw... (it is a long way from the heating element)... so the water keeps pooling till eventually the fan blades get buried in water and freeze.. then the fridge stops cooling !
I have tied a copper wire around the glass tube of the heating element and ran the wire down the drain tube hole hoping that it would keep the tube from freezing.... no luck !
Is this a defrost timer that is running on too short of cycle
Has anyone else had this issue before
Thanks in advance !
