This sounds like the defrost drain line is clogged and frozen. Every 8-12 hours the defrost cycle melts the ice buildup on the coils and is supposed to drain out to the pan under the fridge. Once this is blocked or freezes up the next cycles continue to put liquid water over the existing ice which then freezes, etc. till finall the area is frozen enough for water to find it's way out the door seals. You will need to take the back interior panel off the freezer side to view the coils and drain line. It will take lots of hot water to melt the ice in the drain area and the drain line in order to run a cleaning tube (basically a piece of 1/4" tubing like the water line tubing a couple feet long that you can force down the drain to make sure it's not plugged). Once you push the cleaning tube down the drain and can see it come out the other end in the drip tray pull it back out and pour hot water down it once more to watch that it drains fast. That should do it!

sjlobo, sounds like your defrost drain pan is frozen over or has some gunk in it. When the unit goes into defrost the water is running onto the freezer floor and out the front. Remove the lower bin and check the drain hole. You may have to remove the freezer back panel. If you can, just use some very hot water and some sort of baster to unfreeze the drain. Check this first, Catriver..post back.

We had a similar problem. It ended up being a frozen pea that fell down into the defrost drain and was blocking the water from draining out each time the freezer defrosted.

remove back panel inside freezer. you will see drain tray at bottom with a drain hole in the middle - this is blocked usually with ice. melt off with a hairdryer and follow up with hot water till water flows away freely
