Default Refrigerator -- excess condensation

I have a refrigerator (about 16 years old, a G.E.) and it's started
forming huge amounts of condensation in the bottom, overflowing to
the floor every few days. If this the normal result of humid
air and perhaps a leaky door gasket? Or is there something broken
in this refrigerator?

While a leaky door gasket could do this, if it came on suddenly its more
likely to be that the drain from the refrigerator to the water pan under
the box is clogged. See if you can locate it (probably on the bottom
under the drawers) and clear it.

A leaky door gasket would make the condition worse, and a replacement
(call GE parts) would probably be a good investment, especially if its
the original. They are usually easy to replace, and the GE answer
center can talk you thru it.

Answer center (i.e. tech support) 800 626 2000
Parts 800 626 2002

Find the exact model number (a long string) on a label somewhere first.
