I had the same problem with my LRFC25750 and have finally figured out what's happening! The water that is pooling and freezing on the bottom of the freezer is definitely coming from the defrost cycle. It is pooling inside the freezer compartment because the drain inside the back of the freezer intended to carry the defrost water down to the external evaporator tray underneath is blocked with ice. As a result, the defrost water from the coils overflows the collector under the coils and runs down the inside back of the freezer, pools on the bottom, and re-freezes when the cycle is over. this continues until there's so much ice on the bottom that the water from next defrost cycle runs out on the floor. The "easy" solution is to unplug the unit and let it completely melt out (this could take 24-36 hours). I couldn't wait, so I removed the freezer drawers and their tracks and pulled out the back panel inside the freezer -- saw the ice in the collector and blocking the drain and I melted it away with hot water and verified that water could now flow down to the external evaporator tray. Unless you want to do this, I'd say give it a good 24-36 hours for all the ice to melt away. I think it all started when we left the freezer door ajar for a whole day and probably had a lot of frost build-up on the coils. The next defrost cycle was not enough to clear all the frost and things began to build up from there. Once the drain is frozen, though, you're finished -- the defrost heater doesn;t reach down that far and you have to melt it down completely or it will continue to leak forever. I've heard that you can get a drain heater to ensure that the drain never freezes over or at least so that it is sure to clear with each defrost cycle. I'll post an update if I locate one.

SOURCE: ice buildup on bottom of freezer
yes, the drain is clogged, remove all food from frige and freezer and defrost with a hair dryer,go the the freezer section this is where the issue is, you need to poor hot water into the drain trough located just below the evaporator, chase the drain with a coat hanger with the hair dryer on the coat hanger this with heat up the coat hanger enough to melt and free the clog.

SOURCE: my ice maker is really
it could be 3 things.
1. The icemaker has a water filter. Has that ever been changed?
2. The water inlet solenoid maybe going bad.
3. The freezer is not freezing the ice. if this is the case clean the back and bottom of the unit as to allow airflow.
