I'm getting ready to call my local appliance repair guy and want to be informed before I get hosed.
We have a GE profile with the freezer on the bottom. In the last 2-3 weeks we noticed water getting into the bottom drawer in the refer. I eventually tracked the source to a small drip from the housing in the back of the refer box. (forgive my jargon)
The best way to describe it is full length vertical bulge dead center of the back of the refer box that looks like some kind of vent plenum. It's all enclosed and covered by the GE panels but there are a few vent holes and what looks like stryofoam inside.
The drips are coming from the bottom of this vertical housing, behind the two produce drawers, onto the shelf below, and down into the bottom full width drawer.
The refer is two yrs old and we've not changed any settings. It just started dripping.
So what might this be? And what sort of estimates are we looking at?
Thanks for any insight you all might offer.

Thanks for any insight you all might offer.
Update: I finally decided to take this thing apart and figure out where the water was coming from.
The back panel covers a cooling coil, which has ice build-up. Not a lot but moisture is freezing. The drain hole is blocked with ice. When the coil condenses the moisture has no place to go. The small catch tub for the drain hose is also full of ice. The water is overflow from condensation on the cooling coils.
Repair guy coming tomorrow. Refer unplugged in an attempt to thaw the drain hose. Repair guy says may be an "open elect contact or mother board". I guess icing up is bad.
Stay tuned for further updates. What a piece of dung GE makes.
