Kenmore elite refrigerator door leak

I noticed that my refrigerator side by side is leaking water from under the door. The freezer is on the bottom and the side by side doors are on top. The leak is under the left side door where the water dispenser is located and it's only noticeable when I open the door.

Water leaking out freezer door--unit is still making ice

There is a shroud at the back of the freeezer. (Mine was a GE) but under the shroud is the evaporator coils and also a heating element to defrost the coils during the defrost cycles. Mine had the gutter underneath misaligned and the water went into the freezer and froze instead of going down the drain. I thought it was a ice maker leak until we found that. The weird thing is we had the refrigerator for about 6 years before it started leaking like that.

It has worked fine for about a year since that "fix"

2 year old kenmore elite water leaking in freezer area

Does this happen when unit is in a defrost?? If so, sounds like the drain line is clogged.The hose and pan are located under the unit.You can access this by removing the cardboard back cover.Find the drain line tube.I'm sure the drain opening at the evaporater is iced over.You will have to unplug the unit and keep the doors open to defrost.(Removing product in unit will decrease defrost time.) Maybe an hour to an hour and a half.Could be longer!! Try using a wet/dry vac to clear.
