SOURCE: Defrost Problem
there is a drain in the middle of the defrost water collector and it is probably blocked - usually with ice. dry ot the tray and put very hot water in to melt the ice. you may have to do several times. do this until water flows away freely

I had the same problem with mine a couple of months ago. There is a drain which gets plugged. You have to remove the contents of your freezer, and then look at the back area of the freezer. The panel that's on the back is removable. Once it's removed, you will see a drain at the bottom. Mine was clogged up with debris, and was covered with ice. I poured warm water over the drain, soaked it up...did this a few times to melt the ice, then I worked at cleaning out the drain. Mine wasn't plugged too badly, I ended up having to blow air through the drain using my air compressor, to be positive that it was clear of debris. You could poke something down the drain, but it won't go very far because there is an elbow on the drain tube(visible on the backside of the unit itself)
If you get it cleaned out, it should be fine. Mines been great ever since I cleaned mine out...no more puddles on the floor.

The above answer is only HALF right. The blue clips have to be removed to lift the shelf up and pull it toward you.
To remove the clips:
1. Get a screw driver or something to get behind the clip.
2. Slide it behind the clip and slowly pry it toward you.
3. Repeat for the clip on the other side.
4. Do the above; lift the shelf slightly and pull it toward yourself.

I really believe your adaptive defrost located inside the fresh food compartment and inside the control panel is defective. It puts your refrigerator on a timely defrost and if defective this problem you listed in your post happens. Yes we may need to also check the defrost heater and defrost thermostat but with my experience with that type of Adaptive Defrost Control is famous for its failure.
ADAPTIVE DEFROST CONTROL Part Number 61005988 You can find it located on two of my websites. Some models like yours came with a Defrost Timer. We will need just look inside the control panel and see for sure. Here is a photo of the Adaptive defrost. If you should need to contact me please send an email or try to answer here. Problem is I don't get notifications when someone comments. firstname.lastname@example.org
Please rate and ask me as much as you like. Thank You, Sea Breeze

Whatever you do do not run the refrigerator with the freezer fan not working. That Fan is about $70.00 depending who you get it from and easy to change. If you could find someone we could do it without calling service, that is what we are here for. See if you can find someone with a digital meter and let me know when ready, Sea Breeze
