problem could be door seals not sealing completely and hence excessive ice formed on evaporator and excess water when it melts. however, i have found this problem many times with large larder fridges and really found no cure.
towards the bottom of the back wall, there is a gulley with a drain hole in the middle. this drain is blocked. clear it with something flexible and make sure water flows away freely

Our GE Profile leaked from the freezer door and this is what I was told by a service man to try before he came and it worked. There should be a "well" on the bottom of your freezer floor where the water runs when it defrosts. Yours is probably now covered with a sheet of ice. You can melt the ice with a hairdryer using dry towels to soak up the water as you work or really hot wet rags and ring them out in the sink. After all the ice is removed pour a small amount of warm water into the "well" and stick your finger in there and "plunge" it - like you would a clogged toilet - with your finger. This will purge the ice that blocked the drain. Check on this every couple of months to make sure you don't end up with the same problem in a year or so.

IF YOU TAKE THE BACK OFF THE INSIDE OF THE FREEZER IT IS LOCATED UNDER THE EVAPORATOR COIL IN THE CENTER, IT IS A PIECE OF ALUMINUM SHAPED TO CATCH THE WATER, MELT THE ICE AND BLOW THE HOLE CLEAR

If your filter is down on the refrig kick plate , then your filter is problably the cause . Replace the filter . I have found 3 lately , that the filter seals or the actual filter was cracked , letting water drip into the drain pan , causing it to over flow .

SOURCE: I get water (ice) in
Is this a NEW refrigerator? If so then you have a valid warranty service request.
If it is not, there are 2 things that cause ice build up:
1. The ice maker water valve leaking by when the water valve is supposed to be closed.
You can prove this by doing the following:
a. Ice maker OFF
b. Remove the plastic line on the back of your unit at the rubber water fill tube connection. Place it in a bucket over night or for a day. If there is ANY water in the bucket the water valve is allowing water to leak by when it is supposed to be closed.
The olny remedy is to change the water valve.
2. Te freezer compartment evaporator drain is frozen or clogged. This requires opening up the rear access cover of the freezer to clear a clog. If you just suspect ice build up you can empty the freezer compartment and place a fan blowing into the freezer compartment for over 2 hours to melt the ice in the evaporator drain.
If you need assistance with parts or anything else just respond here and I will gladly help you. I do ask that you include your model number in any future post so that I can pass you links and data applicable to your exact unit.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
