Question about GE Profile 22.2 Cu. Ft. Bottom-Mount Refrigerator - Stainless-Steel
Freezer occasionally leaks clear water onto floor and ice builds up in back of freezer
Is this auto-defrost model? Usually, heating element that defrosts the ice in back of freezer can go bad. How old is the model?

Your problem is possibly one of two things. The ice maker is leaking or the defrost tray behind the rear panel inside freezer back wall is clogged with ice or something else. If you know its not the ice maker unplug the refrigerator and remove the back panel to see if the drain is blocked there, Let me know, Sea Breeze

There's a drain hole in the freezer side behind the bottom drawer in the back wall that must be clogh ; put hot water into it untill melted the ice and keep pouring water to clean the drain (don't worry , the water goes to an evaporative tray) .Keep the drain clean by putting every 3/4 months half a cup of clorox or bleach.

I have a Samsung side by side - model RS253BAWW.
Water was leaking onto floor from main refrigerator, not freezer. It was determined to be a blocked defrost drain.
The repair technician removed the trays and food from fridge, remove the screws from the panel at back, disconnected everything and remove panel.
The stainless tray at bottom of fridge as well as panel itself had solid ice blockage.
He placed panel in sink and used something similar to a blow dryer with narrow hose on it to defrost both the panel and drain in fridge. Took him maybe 15 minutes and charged $99 total for the visit.
In future I will do this myself now that I know how but thought it may be useful information to others who are having similar problems.
