I've got a three-year-old GE PSS26PSTA side-by-side refrigerator.  It's been accumulating water in the bottom drawer for some time, and now we're seeing water in the bottom of the fridge.  It seems like there's more and more and I'd like to figure out what's going on.  I'll say up front, though, that I know NOTHING about refrigerators so I'm hoping the folks here can lend me a (virtual) hand.

The refrigerator and freezer are both maintaining temperature just fine.  I'm noticing three things inside the refrigerator compartment that might be related to my problem, but don't know which are significant:
  1. There's condensation on the inside wall of the refrigerator (the one it shares with the freezer).
  2. There's a very small bit of ice built up in the back inside corner, next to what appears to be an air vent (sorry I don't know what exactly I'm looking at).  This is not an "ice ball", as I've seen described in other posts here.
  3. There is a very slow leak in the upper outside corner where the water line for the filter comes in/out.
At first, I had only noticed #3 and thought that might the the issue.  Now I'm doubting it, because the water seems to be accumulating in the inside rear corner, which is right below #2 and near #1.  This is on the opposite side from #3.

I would appreciate any help diagnosing this problem.  Even if I can't fix it myself, I'd like to know what's going on before I shell out money for a service man.

Thanks,

Kevin
