SOURCE: leaking freezer
Self-defrosting refrigerators usually dispose of the water generated during the defrost cycle via a tube or channel that directs the water to a pan at the bottom of the refrigerator. From the pan, the water normally evaporates. If the tube or channel is clogged or obstructed, the water backs up and leaks into the inside of the refrigerator compartment. Then the water builds up at the bottom, inside of the refrigerator. When the water has built up for a time it may spill out of the front of the door opening. To fix this problem, clear the drain tube or channel and allow the defrost water to flow down to the drain pan. In some refrigerators, the defrost water is intentionally directed down the back wall of the refrigerator, where it then flows to the bottom of the refrigerator compartment and out to a small drain--usually located beneath one of the drawers at the bottom of the refrigerator. If the drain becomes clogged or blocked, the water may back up. To fix this problem, clear the obstruction. Another cause may be the following. The refrigerator may have doorframe heaters to evaporate any condensation on the cabinet frame. If your refrigerator is equipped with a switch inside that says ?energy saver? or something similar, while running in that mode the door heaters are disabled. Turn the switch to the opposite setting and wait 24 hours. If the condensation disappears the problem is solved. please do not forget to rate the solution.thanks.

Look for the drain hole in the bottom of the back wall inside the freezer ,it must be clogh and frozen , put hot water into it to melt the ice and keep pouring until goes through, do that every 3o4 months to keep it clean.

Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use
and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater
comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost
drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the
freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.
Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.

This sounds like the problem I responded to for another user. I hope it works for you.
I got this when the J-trap on the back of the fridge was blocked, not allowing condensation to properly drain into the drain pan.
I solved this problem by pulling the black drain tube off the J-trap (you may need to loosen the holding clamp at the bottom of the tube), giving the J-trap (it's about 2" round) a slight twist to release it from the sheet metal, and carefully pulling it out. Be careful as the sheet metal is sharp. You will see a 1" PVC tube end that fits inside the J-trap. This must be inside the trap when reassembling.
Flush out the J-trap and reassemble.

sounds like a problem with defrost drainage system. would need model #. older GE refs had problem with rust holes in drain trough. how old is it? do you see any rust on back wall of ref? newer refs had problem with drain hole freezing shut and heat probe had to be installed to prevent it from freezing shut.
