I have a Kenmore Coldspot Model #69207990 and have the same problem. Water from the freezer drains into the refridgerator onto the shelves and sheets of ice form. A repairman pointed out that the tube leading down from the freezer onto the drain pan was frozen. By pouring hot water down the tube, he reopened this drain line. Problem solved for six months and the drain line froze again. My question is how to stop this drain line from freezing up again.
WAS IT LEAKING FROM INSIDE THE FREEZER OR FROM BOTTOM OF FRIDGE? ONCE IN A WHILE YOU NEED TO TAKE OUT THE ICE BIN AND DUMP ICE OUT AND CLEAN IT. HOW CAN THE ICE MACHINE OVERFLOW WITH ICE WHEN THE ICE IN THE TRAY WON'T BUDGE? NEED CLARIFICATION. SOUNDS LIKE YOU EITHER HAVE A BAD ICE MAKER MODULE OR THE SOLENOID FOR THE ICE ON THE WATER VALVE IS BAD.
You most likely have a clogged drain. When you freezers goes into defrost every 8 to 10 hours. The frost that is melted during the defrost drains from the freezer either down through the fridge or out the back and down. Either way it drains into a pan under the fridge. This tube is either clogged or the drain it's self inside the freezer is. Most of the time I find peas stopping the water from draining from the freezer. When the water can't drain it leaks through the bottom of the freezer into the fresh food section of the fridge. You will need to fix this because it will cause other problems. The water that cant drain from the freezer refreezes and will end up destroying the foam in the bottom of the freezer. Water will also leak onto the controls located in the part between the freezer and fresh food section ruining you controls.

Does water in door dispenser taste bad? If not, Try arm and hammer fridge deoderizer. It will help to absorb fridge odors which may be clinging to water molecules in ice maker tray. Ice maker tray is open to freezer area.Water is very medium to infiltrate with odors. Try this first
During the defrost cycle heaters inside the walls of the freezer turn on to melt the frost. The melted frost "water" is supposed to drain into a pan under the fridge where it will evaporate. I think the drain line from the freezer to this pan may be blocked. I'd also check the seal on the freezer door. If it's not sealing well it lets a lot of moisture into the freezer which means more water during the defrost cycle. I'd also recommend checking to make sure the ice maker is not leaking.
IT SEEMS LIKE YOU HAVE A CLOGGED DRAIN . CHECK YOUR CONDECER COILS BEHIND KICK PLATE .. AFTER THAT YOU CAN UNPLUG FRIDGE FOR 24 HRS WITH DOORS OPEN AND SOULD DEFROST ENOUGH TO CLEAR DRAIN . IF NOT . DEPENDING ON MODEL YOU SOULD BE ABLE TO GET THROUGH DRAIN THROUGH MOST FREEZERS .
I can't find this model number anywhere and am unfamiliar with the "Evolution" series. However, if it is a top/bottom unit (freezer on top, fridge on bottom) it sounds like you have a clogged drain.
If you pull the back panel off inside of the freezer (where the evaporator is housed) you will see a drain hole, usually in the rear center) that is probably full of ice. If this drain is plugged, it will cause the water to back up into the
refrigerator, usually onto the top shelf or under the veggie bins, and possibly onto the floor.
You need to clear it out, and make sure that water flows through it freely, to the pan underneath the unit. The best way to do this is with a hair dryer and a copper wire, but be careful not to melt the inside of the freezer with it. When it's clear, you might want to take a hose and blow through it to make sure there's nothing trapped inside.
Please let me know if you need any further help with this issue.
being in the uk, i don't know this appliance specifically so take this as guidence.
there are two places where water can come from. at the rear of the fridge there should be a gully at the bottom of the evaporator wall - the part that frosts up. in the middle of this gully is a drain and this is likely blocked. push something flexible down it and check blockage is cleared by pouring a small amount of water in the gully and see it flows freely away. good idea to occasionly pour a small amount of dilute bleach down it now and again to keep it sweet.
the other place for water to come from is if some of the contents of the fridge are touching the back wall. when it defrosts the water tends to divert onto the shelves
