Question about GE Profile 26.6 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with Dispenser TFX27PRBWW
SOURCE: Drain plugged in freezer
First of all, is it ice or frost? If it is ice, I would say you have a leaky water valve to icemaker, running down evap. coils. Replace water valve. If you have frost-find out why it is not defrosting(defrost heater, defrost thermostat, or defrost timer.

I had the same problem with mine a couple of months ago. There is a drain which gets plugged. You have to remove the contents of your freezer, and then look at the back area of the freezer. The panel that's on the back is removable. Once it's removed, you will see a drain at the bottom. Mine was clogged up with debris, and was covered with ice. I poured warm water over the drain, soaked it up...did this a few times to melt the ice, then I worked at cleaning out the drain. Mine wasn't plugged too badly, I ended up having to blow air through the drain using my air compressor, to be positive that it was clear of debris. You could poke something down the drain, but it won't go very far because there is an elbow on the drain tube(visible on the backside of the unit itself)
If you get it cleaned out, it should be fine. Mines been great ever since I cleaned mine out...no more puddles on the floor.

remove back panel inside freezer. you will see drain tray at bottom with a drain hole in the middle - this is blocked usually with ice. melt off with a hairdryer and follow up with hot water till water flows away freely

Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end
because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the
evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it.
Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing
it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.
