SOURCE: Jenn-Air freezer leak
Apparently it is the drain behind the freezer panel on the inside and it is blocked. It needs to be unblocked and cleaned. You remove the food and the rear panel on the inside of the freezer. With a hair dryer (carefully) remove all ice build up and then unblock the drain line going to the pan under the refrigerator. The drain line can be cleaned with bi-carb and hot water (not boiling).

Look for obstruction at the drain tray for the freezer. Common to have plastic wrap sucked into that area.Or gunk in the drain line. Blow through line to insure the gunk is not an issue.

You have a plugged defrost drain. On hot point refrigs this is fortunatley a very easy repair you can do yourself. remove bottom basket and lowest shelf, ( for sake of room you may remove all shleving. I usually only remove the bottom 2) you will see a ledge coming up from freezer floor to under a rear cover. there will be ice build up on this ledge. clear all of the ice you see and you will uncover the drain hole. next flush hot tap water into the drain hole until it is clear. I use a turkey baster or large syringe to do this but you can push your finger in and out kind of like a plunger to clear the blockage then pour hot water thru line until if flows freely.
If you have any other questions leave them here and I'll be glad to assist any way I can. thanks Peyton

Hello, this sounds like you have a blockage in the drain tube, remove panel back of freezer..you may see ice build up...melt ice with hair dryer/heat gun...you will see a pan below evaporator...melt ice in pan...dry water up in pan with paper towel...now you should see a hole in pan that leads to drain tube...pour some hot water in pan..wait a couple minutes..mop up water and repeat this step 2-3 times....once you have done this find some flexible curatain wire or electrical wire..poke down the hole until you see the water drain..now it is clear..put back panel back and you are good to go. The reason you see water in the Freezer is because the water has been leaking into the freezer instead of running into the drain hole...If you need any further assistance please feel free to comment again. good luck! P.s Please don't forget to rate my solution thanks! Mike.
