Remove the 2 screws at the bottom of the air tower in freezer, slide air tower up and off, remove foam air divertor by pulling up, if it's frozen don't force it or it will break...remove the screws in the top left and right of back panel. now remove the 2 screws in the center and pull the back panel off and remove from freezer. below the evap in the center is your drain hole, use a turkey baster and hot water to clear the hole, it may take a while. You'll know when the drain is unclogged

Thanks for your quick reply but the problem is that I don't see any screws at the bottom of the air tower. In fact I don't see any screws on the back panel of the freezer at all. Does the back panel pop out somehow? This is getting to be a real quandry. again the model# is Gts201cncww. thanks for any further help you can give me.

If I'm looking at the diagram correctly, the drain is at the back of the refer, look back there, looks like there is a tube and grommet assy back there. let me know

There is a cover inside the refridgerator compartment that attaches to the bottom of the freezer compartment. The ref temp control is toward the front of this cover. On the back of the exterior there is nothing up high, but at the bottom there is drain tube and pan underneath where the compressor is located.

billkenny,

You have to remove the evaporator cover in the freezer, not in the refrigerator. The drain hole is located under the evaporator coil.

I would recommend to use a hair dryer to defrost the drain first and then you can use a turkey baster and hot water to clear the drain as recommended by abadfish66.

Gene.

There should be something holding the panel in place. We are not able to give you more accurate information without seeing the fridge.

Not to dig up an old thread, but I thought this info might be useful. To get to the drain you have to take out the ice maker, back off the 2 screws and lift the assembly off then unplug the electrical connector. Then pop off the plastic button to expose a screw, remove it and that plate should pop right off. The whole back panel (which just clips in) pops off from the top side first exposing the drain, in my case was a solid block of ice, the drain will be in there somewhere.

bohawk: Just a quick note to thank you for refreshing that old thread. Got stuck right at the step where you identified how to remove the fascia (GE GTS201 refrigerator). Got it off and was able to find the drain and defrost it. Many, many thanks.
