If you look in your freezer down at the floor you'll probably see a sheet of ice that has built up over time. This is caused from the drain line located underneath the evaporator coil which is behind the freezer wall to clog up, usually with ice. Remove the ice in the floor, then remove the bin. Once that is done look at the back wall the n follow it down. Normally you'll see a trough of sorts, but in some models you may have to remove the freezer wall to get to it. Once you have located the trough, clear the ice from it, and located the drain hole. To clear the ice from the drain itself you can use hot water, a hair dryer, or a screw driver and tap it out. If you use a screw driver be careful not to punch a hole in the line. Once water can freely be poured down the drain, you problem is resolved.

Water is leaking out from the bottom of the freezer

Below the freezer coil is a drain trough. Sounds like it is frozen. Use a hair drier to melt it and poor baking soda with warm water down it.

GE Profile leaking onto floor

Clean the drain pan and drain line in the back of the freezer section behind the cover underneath the evaporator coil. (hint: use turkey baster with hot water) Make sure water drains when you pour it in. If it doesn't - also clean drain tube on the back of the unit behind the cover. When done - put the tube exactly where it was.
Good luck! :)

I have a GE Profile TFG 28PF Profile. I ice on freezer floor

Hi, wow a long way from the U.S., Ca. lol. This sounds as though you are having a drain problem and the condensation is building up and running out onto floor. I would remove all drawers in the area that you suspect the water to be, and see if you can locate a drain on this unit. I haven't pulled up any drawings of this model, but It is sure to have a condensation drain on it. When you find it, use what ever means you may have to clear it. A tank of compressed air would work, but most people don't have one around. Something to blow through it with enough pressure to clear it. Maybe even a small container off hot water poured into it could free what ever is in it. This is where you need to start anyway. I will check in with you later as I have service calls to make. You can let me know what you may have found then. Good Luck Mate, and keep me posted.

Where is drip pan on profile side-by-side

That is from your defrost drain either being clogged with food, or covered with ice. Behind the back wall in the freezer is a drain that empties underneath the fridge. If that drain gets blocked or froze over then the water will dump into the floor of the freezer and out the door gasket.

Water leaking - GE Profile Refrigerator, Model: TPX21PRX

Check to see if the drain at the bottom of your freezer is plugged. When the refrigerator goes on defrost, the water has to go somewhere. Look below the coils in the freezer section and see if there is ice in the drain.
