Re: water leaks from inside refrigerator
Could be ice is forming at the vents already.
even though it is a frost less refrigerator, in some instances, you may want to defrost it manually or leave the door open for 1 day just to be sure that every ice in the fridge has melted. then plug it back in and observe it.

That is most likely a dual water control valve stuck open on back of refrigerator near floor. One side feeds ice maker and other side feeds the water dispenser. If the ice maker side began to leak slowly it would create quite a mess of ice flowing over ice maker and freeze every place it could inside the freezer.

I see you said you looked and the water valve is off but the only that I know of this happening is a defective water control valve. Like a dripping faucet that when off slowly drips until the ice forms and then one the ice maker dumps ice and tries to refill the water goes in every direction. Unplug water valve to confirm what I am saying, Tell me if it continues to leak. Sea Breeze
Your problem is possibly one of two things. The ice maker is leaking or the defrost tray behind the rear panel inside freezer back wall is clogged with ice or something else. If you know its not the ice maker unplug the refrigerator and remove the back panel to see if the drain is blocked there, Let me know, Sea Breeze
there is a cup in the back wall of the fridge that is the drain pull it out gently and clean it plus take a small hose and blow through the small hole if there is no cup check under the crisper to see if the drain hole is there
the drain in the freezer is clog make sure the drain from the freezer
is clean all the way to the pan next to the compressor . you need to
open the back wall of your freezer for that ( the inside wall) clean
with buster (water pump)the drain is in the bottom middle of the freezerr.
Unforturnately, I have the same problem. You have to take the bottom panel of you freezer off. You will have ice built up. You will have to remove the ice. In the back, there is a hole that drains to the drip pan, that has become frozen solid. I have this problem about every 30 days. I wish I knew how to fix the problem. My dad has the same refigerator freezer, it's a problem for him too.
