The defrost drain is frozen, you need to take the cover off inside the freezer and there will be a drain hole probably coverd with ice, you will need to pop most of the ice out first then I use a turkey baster and a tub of hot water. Squirt the hot water in the hole over and over again untill it drains. Then just wipe everything down. Problem solved.

SOURCE: ice maker not working
then you either after doing this have a water to the ice maker problem, or an ice maker issue
go to the water valve and disconnect the small plastic line at the water valve and with a cheater cord connect it to the water valve, naturaly remove the factory connector at the water valve first and plug your cheater cord into the ac if you get water out of the valve the valve is good if you do not the valve is bad
if you get water out of the valve then you have a problem in the ice maker IF the line to the ice maker is clear and no obstructions

Do you know for certain that the automatic defrost cycle is running at all?
Depending on the model, it should be entering the defrost mode every 12 or 24 hours. If the defrost timer is not easy to see (because of the drawer construction), you should be able to catch it by checking the walls of the freezer at random to see if they are still 'ice' cold or more temperate.
You may definitely have a leak, no argument there, but the defrost cycle may have been masking it while it was still happening by sending the ice/water down to the pan.

Sounds like ice buildup around the fan that's inside the freezer. My lousy GE 3-door did that when the bottom freezer didn't get completely closed overnight, and everything behind the back panel, where the coils are froze up like an iceberg. I had to take the back panel off and melt it with a hair dryer.
See if you see any abnormal ice buildup, or if the refrig compartment is getting warm. That's usually a result of ice buildup. Another cause is a failure in the defrost cycle. It will freeze up after a couple days. This would usually be the defrost timer.
