Customer Question
My GE refrigerator that...

My GE refrigerator that is 13 years old has water leak inside on the back wall of the refrigerator. There is a box there with a tube running towards the front of the refrigerator. Occasionally there is a loud noise that sounds like it is coming from the ice maker.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your GE is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

13 years old. Model # PT122MFMARBB

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

No

The defrost drain line is plugged. You will need to pull the refrigerator out to clear that line. See the diagram at the link below. Number 270 is the drain line assembly that will come off to allow for cleaning. It usually plugs right at the elbow, so be sure to remove it and use hot water to clean (soak it if you have to). Once cleared, you should have no more water leaks.
