Question about GE 23.1 Cu. Ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with Thru-the-Door Ice and Water - Black-on-Black
Poor or low water pressure can allow the fill valve to stay open and bleed a little water through all the time, bad fill valve, water tank/resevoir breathing( flexing ) and some water is being pushed out are -some- common trouble makers.
The fill valve has one entrance and 2 exits, disconnect the chilled water exit ( 5/16 tubing ) to see if water is dribbling past the fill valve all the time, causing that drip. Low water pressure to the fill or a bad fill valve can do this.
If that checks ok....
No pic Water tank-reservour
....the chilled water tank is likely flexing and pushing out the water drip = new tank time,the tank is behind the lower crispers in the FF section.
One problem that is becoming more prevalent is this sort of issue. More and more people are installing under-the-sink "reverse osmosis" water filtration units. These do not provide sufficient pressure to keep the water valves closed (Jeff touched on this earlier) - a typical refrigerator water valve needs about 30 psi for proper closure. Your refrigerator needs to be connected to mains water.
I have also been on the ge site and they are also suggesting to replace the water valve first before doing anything else if you are looking for the part goto www.marcone.com go under contact us there is a 1800 number this is the cheapest appliance parts place that i have found if you have any further questions please message me back and please remember when our chat is concluded to rank how this opinion has helped Thanks again

You don't say how long you have had the fridge but i would guess that you have had it some time and this problem has emerged recently.
If this is the case,then the tap may have something stuck in the seal..
I don't know your machine but other similar problems have been resolved by removing the tap and cleaning. (If there is anything in the outlet, then this could be the cause of your problem).
