Is the drain pan underneath overflowing? If so the water filter may be clogged and the water leaking past it to the pan. The normal amount of water from the defrost cycle shouldn't fill it up. The condenser fan usually evaporates the water by blowing the warm air on the pan.
There could be a leak because or the defrost drain being stopped up but this usually comes out the bottom of the freezer door.
Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.

Many maybes here. Leaking water usually indicates a problem with defrost. You need to remove either the rear wall or the bottom cover inside the freezer. Most will have screws, but some will be a friction-fit. Bottom line is to look for ice, either on the rear wall or the bottom.... wherever the ice is showing. This is where you will expose the evaporator (cold radiator) and drain fitting.
Odds are that your drain is plugged and causing the evaporator to ice-over. Expose this area and look for anything (I've seen peas, price labels, corn and multiple items causing the issue) that is plugging the drain fitting. You may need to turn the unit off for a day to melt the ice in this area. If you do, remove ALL product and place towels at the bottom of the unit to absorb the water that will accumulate. Not doing the towels could damage your floor.
When the drain fitting is exposed, if there is something obstructing the opening, remove it and ensure that the line if not plugged by pouring a small amount of hot water into it. That water should end up in the catch pan below the unit.
If there is nothing plugging it, make sure that the fan is operational. If not, replace it. If fan is good, my advice is to replace the defrost heater, defrost safety control and defrost timer... all of them.
Good luck. If I had a unit as old as yours, I'd not call a tech. I'd replace the unit.
