SOURCE: clogged fridge drain tube
The drain is behind the back panel in the freezer at the bottom. Sounds like it is frozen over which is pretty common. Will need to remove panel and thaw out drain by running hot water down. You can use a putty knife to break up ice first. Make sure you get all ice around the drain above and below the thin aluminum tray at the bottom. After the drain is free don't be alarmed if you get some water on the floor because the drain pan may not hold all of the water you ran down the drain. Not anything you can do to prevent this on this model.

Take a spray bottle with VERY hot water and spray it down the drain line

Testimonial: "Good advice. Wife called repairman before I could apply. Repairman did same thing, but with pressureized."
Turn off the fridge. Remove the rear freezer panel inside the freezer. Take a hair dryer and thaw the ice in the drain trough at the rear of the freezer. After it is clear, pour a 1/4 cup of bleach into the drain hole. Adjust the front leveling legs on the fridge to make the fridge tilt slightly to the rear.

You get to it from the freezer. Remove the back wall in the freezer and you will see it there. Unclog it with some wire or check to see if it has ice over it.
