The drain should be behind the fridge. Look below for the outlet into a drain pan. The line could be plugged. Look for a pinch in the line or other obstruction.

Why is water pooling under right crisper?

On defrost refrigerators water is drained down the sides to an outlet on the bottom of the interior of the unit and then to a tray under the unit, close to the floor, where it is heated and evaporates.
If he hole inside is plugged then the water will pool inside.
Take out both crispers and try to find the location where the water will flow out. It may be plugged with gunk The inside bottom of the unit may have indented runs where the water will be directed to the outlet.

Water not draining into bucket and leaking on floor

Unplug the unit and remove the water collection container. Using a flash light, look into the inside of the unit where the collection container was. There should be a plastic or rubber tube or just a hole where the water would drain into the container. Does it appear clogged? If not, carefully use a 12" long Zip Tie that will fit into the hose or the hole and carefully and slowly run the Zip Tie into it as far as you can. While rotating the Tie, pull it back out. If this area was clogged, it should dislodge the clog and the water should start draining as it should.

Hope this helped solve our problem. Please let me know.

The unit is on a hardwood floor and there is water damage to the floor. The unit appears to be dry now. Could it have a leak that can't be seen?

The potential for water leaking to the floor is probably still there. Open the door of the unit, look in the back and you will see a white plate; that is the evaporator. When the unit is running, there is a light frost that forms on the front and back surface of the evaporator; sometimes the frost can get a bit thick because of air laden moisture infiltration or the frequency of door opening. That frost eventually will melt and drain from a drain hole right underneath the evaporator. If that drain hole is plugged up, water will eventually leak out from under the door. Keep that hole clean and patent and also check the state of the water collecting pan underneath the the unit. That might solve your water problem.

Unit runs but water collects on the floor

The drain hole within the unit is most likely plugged up with an accumulation of crud. (Common problem). Depending on the make/model, you may be able to access that drain hole by simply removing the collection bucket. If not, then unplug the unit and remove the housing to gain access to the internal drain.

Miele dishwasher g843 scvi water backed up on bottom of unit

When you drain the sink the water will go to the path of least resistance. Disconnect the dishwasher, cap the hole and see if water drains. If not then you have a plumbing issue.
Inside the dishwasher there is also a non return valve located in the sump. This should prevent water from entering the unit. Make sure it is in correctly.

Ice and water on bottom of freezer

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, back.
