Sounds like the drain for the defrost cycle water may be plugged and you eventually overflow water. See if you can find the little drain hole for the coil defrost water and check for dirty/plugged. Try to pour hot water in the drain area and see if it runs out the drain fast (if real slow it's a problem). Make sure the water is also going down to the holding pan near the bottom area/compressor area (that's where it evaporates later). Let me know what you find.

I had the same problem, the fridge would leak overnight (usually) I found with some more searching the answer..... try it at you own risk!
Here are 2 detailed answers depending on your circumstances/technical ability....Turn off fridge....
1. Defrost fridge...catch all the water
2. Work quickly....
Remove drawers, at the back of the fridge there is a panel with 5 phillips screws (note that there are long and short screws). Remove the screws and the panel. (if you chose the second option then this will be "frozen in place" so you will get crunching noise when you peel it away - so be careful when removing it). At the top of the panel is a connector that powers the fan, squeeze the 2 sides in to remove. This will allow the panel/ducting to be removed from the fridge. (If you chose option 2 you will now probably see a large lump of ice over the drain hole).
Remove ice or debris from drain hole, re-asssmble not forgetting to connect the fan again!!!) then repower the fridge following the instructions as you will get the alarms... the fridge cools and the warning lights dissapear.......24 hours on mine is OK!

If you take all the drawers out of the freezer - you will find 8 screws with 'bolt type' heads - 2 top, 4 at sides and 2 to the bottom.
Turn the power off. Undo all these screws and remove the rear panel. You will notice the 'gubbins' of the freezer. At the bottom you should notice there is a shaped plate with some piping running around and then up into the cooling 'radiator'. Towards the middle left of the plate there should be a hole - this is the drain hole. Is it blocked with a 'slug' of ice! Yes is my guess. This needs defrosting as will the rear panel you took out by any guess.
I did ours this morning as the fridge freezer was making a heck of a racket. Took about 30 minutes with the wife's hairdryer - and I'm no expert.
I just enjoy the fact I'd probably saved £50 plus on a callout.

I appreciate your post, Carol!
Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire refrigerator is displaying an error code of "SY CE" and the lights are not working. A "SY CE" error code stands for a communication error at start up. This might be a miscommunication within your refrigerator and I would recommend performing a reset in order to correct the issue. To reset your refrigerator you need to disconnect power from it for roughly ten minutes. If this does not help correct your issue you may need to change your control panel or a wiring harness. In order to properly diagnosis your refrigerator you may need to disassemble it and I would suggest having a professional technician out to do so. This will help you avoid any unnecessary part purchases or personal injury. -Matt

Hello Debbie Lee - Typically error code SY CE indicates that the refrigerator has detected a communication error at power up. Contact a professional to move forward accurately to check the wiring between main control board and user interface. Depending on the diagnoses, either or will need placing.

Hello Angela Clark - Typically error code SY CF indicates that the refrigerator has detected a communication failure after power up. Contact a professional to move forward accurately. The wiring between the main control board and user interface board will need to be check and diagnose. Depending on the diagnoses the main control board may need replacing.
