I have a 7 year old Kenmore Refridgerator that is leaking large amounts of water inside the Fridge. I have vacumned the coils and have arranged the food inside so as not to impeed air flow. I also cleaned and inspected the ''Drip'' tray under the fridge. There appears to be ice crystals on the duct type thing on the inside, on the rear of the fridge. Some small fozen drops are also on the metal areas on the top of the inside.I have turned off the ice maker and still am getting water puddles in the bottom of the fridge. They are 1/2'' deep and fill the bottom of the fridge

All depends on how much water is collecting. A lot of water indicated a leak from the ice maker. A small amount and it's probably a clogged condensate drain. Here's a YouTube video on a different brand showing a clogged drain, your may be similar (or not), but it might give you an idea as to where to look. Refrigerator dripping water inside FIX
You have a defrost drain line that is plugged. You will have to look in the freezer way in back and on the bottom. Also if you have to you can look in back of the refrig. but that means you will have to pull it out from the wall..Ance you locate th e line you you will have to get it cleaned out. Hope this helps.
If it is not from a plugged or misaligned defrost drain tube, then it is always from air leaking into your refer section. Check you door gasket to see if it is sealing correctly all around your door. Make sure your door is shutting tightly every time. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists.
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.

Even though it doesn't seem like it's coming from your freezer, morre than likely that's where it's coming from. At the back of the fridge there will be a drip tray that actually catches the water from the thawing freeze. One way to avoid access water is to simply turn down your freezer and fridge. Usually if they are number 0-10, both frigde and freezer should be set on the 5 level.
check to make sure the drain pan is in the right place. If it puddles up inside the bottom of the fridge first, your drain hole is plugged up. for this, you wil have to remove the access panel in the back of the freezer side to get to the drain hole. you may also have a crack in your drain pan.
