Question about GE Refrigerators
Remove the food and the ice maker from the freezer ( if equiped ) . Remove the rear freezer panel . Using a hair dryer , start in the middle , below the coils , defrosting , until you see the drain hole . Use hot water to help defrost the hole . Once water starts going thru the hole , use a small hose inserted into the hole , and blow thru , to remove any unseen debris in the drain line . To avoid this problem again , you can use an ALUMINUM solid wire , 14-16 guage , with the insulation completely off , and insert one end into the drain hole as far as possible without any force . Wrap the other end about 1 1/2 to 2 turns , around the black rod (defrost heater) , above the hole . When refrig goes into defrost , the heat will transfer from the heater , to the wire , keeping the hole from freezing up again .

You have an icing issue whereby the drain tube is getting blocked with ice and so when it goes into auto defrost the water can't get down the drain tube so it runs down the back wall of the fridge and lays under the crisper drawers. You need to check out the tube to see if it is ice or sometimes a bit of debris from the freezer can get stuck in the drain cup/tube. If it is an icing up problem check the defrost timer, the defrost heater and the defrost thermostat. Hope this will help.
