Question about GE GTS22KBP Top Freezer Refrigerator
OK, you did not specify if the leak is inside or outside of the unit, so i will address both issues here.
OUTSIDE LEAK UNDER THE UNIT.
The drain pan should be removed and cleaned at least once a year. The drain pan is located at the bottom of the refrigerator behind the front grill. Remove the grill, which snaps into place. Grasp the drain pan while pulling slightly upward and forward.
Clean the pan with warm soapy water or warm water and baking soda.
If the pan rattles when it is replaced, it is too close to the compressor. Simply reposition the tray.
((If you have an ice-maker, check the water supply hose going into and coming out of the water inlet valve. The hoses may be loose here.))
INSIDE LEAK ON BOTTOM SECTION OF UNIT.
Now, let's address an inside leak.
Your refrigerator has a drain that leads to the exterior drain pan beneath the refrigerator. Occasionally this drain can become clogged resulting in standing water inside your refrigerator. A similar drain exists in the freezer, which when clogged results in ice build up on the floor of the freezer/refrigerator.
The drain is located either on the floor of the refrigerator, beneath the vegetable crisper, or in the wall behind a drain funnel.
Clear the drain by forcing a solution of water and bleach or water and baking soda into it with a basting syringe. If the solution will not flow through, slide a length of ¼ inch flexible tubing into the drain tube to push the clog through to the drain pan. Remove the tubing after clearing the clog.
**Note- ((Check the level of the unit as well. if the unit is not level, drainage from the defrost cycle might be impaired.)))

You can try a flexible plastic tube strong enough to
go through the drain of your refrigerator. Better still
if you can buy, a 1/4 inch diameter flexible spiral
rod for manual declogging equipment. You can buy
it at the hardware stores.

Don't know on yours if the bottom plate on the freezer comes out or the back. don't matter witch ever one you have. take it out. the drain is in the middle at the back. use a hair dryer to throw the ice there. Is best to use a air hose to blow the drain you will here it when it gets clear.
