Question about GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator
Our freezer leaks water on the floor. Looks like the water is actually coming out of the freezer. not from below. It leaks a small puddle at a time. Maybe once per day.
I had the same problem, and the solution is that the drain valve was plugged. On my unit, I removed the lower back panel and started cleaning. It was filthy, and I don't think it had been cleaned for 8 years or so. Anyway, there is a drain hose that releases into a flat pan. The pan is really long and weaves its way through the all the other components under the fridge. It is designed to increase surface area and allow the defrosted water to evaporate. Anyway, the drain hose into that pan was plugged. I just removed it from the point of connection to the drain and blew into it (from upstream) and that dislodged the dirt plugging it up. My system allowed relatively easy access, but I would guess some designs might be pretty tricky. Also, make sure you have some towels standing by because when you remove the drain hose, all the backed up water will come streaming out. This was a surprisingly easy job, and only took about 30 minutes total. The main work was vacuuming all the dirt. The lesson learned is that this should be done every few months. Also, a lot of the insulation around the components had pretty much disintegrated, so that was more clean up, and I imagine there might be some issues now with efficiency and maybe hot or uneven spots in the fridge itself.

I'd check the seal around the freezer to see if there are any leaks first. You can check if the fridge has a energy saver switch that helps with condensation.
