If it is a plastic compression fitting you can tighten each one a little(careful not to tighten them too much cause they can strip out) Use a small crescent wrench with a back up wrench.

Mine was doing the same thing. Turns out the water supply line was broken just above the bottom hinge for the door. I had to remove the shelves on the freezer door by removing the screws around the door behind the seal and then spliced the line up by the dispenser and behind the grille at the bottom. I used 1/4" supply line that was left over from hooking up the supply line and two 1/4" to 5/16" adapters from lowes. A fisch tape makes it easier to run the new piece through the door but the fix was pretty simple overall.

We also had this problem with a Jenn Air side by side. I cleaned out the drain tube and melted the ice in the collector tray but we still had water coming out of the freezer door later on. My wife started looking for a new fridge because she was tired of cleaning up the pudles daily. I went online to another site and found this to be a common problem. It seems the defrost cycle is not long enough to let all the water drain out of the collector tray and it ends up frozen in place and the the tube gets blocked and the the water runs down the inside back of the freezer untill it fills the the bottom of the freezer. Then it freezes and the the next time the water flows out the front of the door on to the floor. There are kits available to solve this problem and they cost about $20. I looked at what was in the kit and made my own part. It is a 9 or 10" long piece of # 12 or #14 copper wire (house wiring ground wire).
Turn off fridge and take the shelves out of freezer and then take off the large grill on the back wall and melt the ice in the bottom area where the metal water collector tray is. Look under the fidge where the evaporator tray is and make sure water is in fact running down the tube. To make sure it is, empty out the evap tray and put it back in and pour water into the defrost collector tray to see if the water flows down to the evap tray. If it doesn't then blow it out. If it does then take the copper wire and shove all but 2" of it down the tube that drains the collector tray. The last 2" or 3" of wire needs to be bent 90 degrees so that it lays flat in the tray. It seems the cooper wire that is down inside the tube conducts enough warmth from outside the freezer to keep the tray from freezing up to soon after the defrost cycle and lets all the water drain out down to the evaporating tray which is under the fridge. We never had water in the evaporating tray before because it was never making it down the tube. It has been many months now since my fix with no water on the floor.

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

you have a clogged drain, it is either clogged with ice or some kind of debris, thaw the freezer out and push a length of weed trimmer line down the drain. The drain is accessible by removing the back wall of the inside of the freezer. If there is no clog then the drain may be freezing up, if that is the case, take a piece of 14 gauge romex wire and loop it several times around the heating element at the bottom of the evaporator and push a few inches of it into the drain, this will get hot and transfer heat when it goes into a defrost cycle which is where the water is coming from in the first place
