there is a drain in the freezer that sum time get Clogged the drain is located below the evaporator coil you have to remove the evaporator cover to unclog it make sure the refrigerator is unplugged before trying this you can't unclog the freezer drain without removing parts
I am pretty sure you are having a defrost drain blockage problem. Most defrost every eight hours and over a period of time the drain line that comes down from freezer into a cup like object top middle and back of the fresh food section. If blocked by gunk or ice you will see trails of liquid leaking down the rear wall of fresh food compartment until it reaches the crisper drawers. This is not always the same with every model as you may see frozen ice flowing down the rear wall of freezers on side by sides. Here is an example Click here=>Whirlpool Leak Photo taken by TechnicianBrian He has been around a good bit and deserves credit for his contributions. Here is nother way to make this look more simple in clip above.echnicianBrian.comAnd in this photo are several parts listed in photo group #1 were it is most likely running down the wall=> MagicChef CTB1921AR fresh food section.If you still have questions please ask and rate me if I was able to explain this well enough. Every refrigerator is made different so these are examples only. The key is to find if ice or just gunk has blocked you defrost drain. Unplug and then remove the rear panel in back of freezer. We need to see if the water is overflowing the condensate drain tray or if the blockage is in the turn the drain leads down back of your refrigerator.

Drain is in the freezer section below the evaporator. To get to it you will need to remove freezer inside back panel. After removing panel you will see the drain hole under the evaporator. Use hot water and or a wire hanger to clear blockage.
It will be smelly water and if you have access to a shop vac that will help you remove the standing water if not use a bowl or turkey blaster listed below.
Use a small bowl to remove standing water from washer to access screen to remove and check for blockage. Once you have removed all the water that you can with a bowl or cup. You can use a turkey blaster to sucton remaining water from dishwasher.
Then you remove screen and clean out drain and also check drain line for blockage from dishwasher to under sink.
Clean out drain to unclog in bottom of dishwasher and you may have to remove drain line to clean it.
Good day, In the freezer if it has an ice maker, it will have to be removed. Remove the back panel. Below the cooling coil is a drain pan. It has a drain hole in it. If it is iced over you will have to defrost it, with the machine off. Many use a hair dryer, but hot water with a turkey basting tool is safer. Once the drain hole is open, you will have to follow thru since the water drains into a cup in the fresh food compartment then thru the back wall into a drain hose on the rear. Blockage can occur anywhere thru that area. Service techs usually use compressed air with a hose to blow the lines clear. If you have no access to something like that you wil have to get creative. Removing all the components and flushing them out is one option.
your drain is clogged.you may have a catch for your drain where you see leak coming from.that may pull off and you can see if their is trash build up in it.you are going to need to take the panel off the back of freezer.inside back of freezer you will see screws.they will need to come out,if you have ice maker that will need to be removed also.once back panel is off you will see your coils,beneath the coils it will most likely have a sheet of ice.tturn machine off and take a hair dryer and defrost the ice.once ice is gone take a cup of hot water and run thru drain to see if unclogged.repeat if drain is not clear.the ice in drain tube will eventually unclog.I use a steamer.much quicker.
The drain is clogged. The drain is usually located inside the freezer on the bottom shelf to the rear. Use a meat baster and a solution of 1 tsp. baking soda and 2 cups of hot water-not boiling to unclog the drain. You probably also have about 1/2 inch of ice build-up on the bottom shelf. This will have to be removed first.
check freezer for frost build up and if fan blowing, check condenser make sure clean, and fan blowing,
check vents in refrig. make sure no blockage, freezer control should be in the middle setting,
you can try turning that to Warmer freezer allowing MORE air to refrigertor side.
