Most likely you have a blockage in the defrost drain that begins behind the rear panel in back of the freezer and ends up in a pan beneath the refrigerator were a fan blows warm air over the water to put it back into the air inside your home. You need to unplug the refrigerator and remove the back panel inside the freezer and look at the condensate collector tray at bottom of the evaporator coil. Sometimes its ice blocking the hole because temperatures are too cold for the liquid to drain and it freezes before leaving the freezer and sometimes the line is blocked beyond the tray. Examine first and melt the ice and pour a warm solution of clorox and water in the pan and check if the amount ended up in the pan below the refrigerator. Sometimes a wet vacuum cleaner will help get what ever dislodged from the drain and sometimes we need to install something to warm the hole as the defrost takes place. But cleaning the drain is the best solution for now..Sea Breeze

That water is from the melting frost of the automatic defrost cycle. Their is drain in the freezer behind the back wall under the evaperator coil that is blocked, so instead of defrost water draining it's pooling in the freezer or in some case espically on models with the freezer on the top,the water is leaking from the freezer vents into the fresh food compartment.
The way to clear the drain is remove back plate and remove all ice build up and GENTLY make a small hole in drain through then totally flush w/warm water.
The exact location of drain is under the coil behind back freezer plate in the centeroldtech2332_52.jpg

I had a similar problem with my Whirlpool model 6ED25DQFW side by side refrigerator/freezer with ice maker/water dispenser. Water was slowly pooling under the refrigerator under the freezer section. The defrost drain pipe was not blocked, the condenser fan was running, the drip pan was not leaking.
The source of the leak was found to be the icemaker solenoid block plastic body which had a pinhole leak.
To fix requires either plastic welding, or replacement of the solenoid block plastic body.
To access the solenoid block firstly requires removal of the cardboard cover, located at the lower rear of the refrigerator.

Your freezer goes to a defrosting cycle and actualy melts away some ice formation inside the freezer, normaly this melted ice (water) drains trough a tube in the back of the frig... the drain is probably clogged and the water spils out... to unclogg it you need to find the uper end of the drain (where the water drips in) usualy way in the back of the frigidaire, than try pushing a long wire in downwards to unclogg the drain, also check underneath or in the back of the frig. ther should be a back to hold the water for the time it evaporates, see if it is not full of water or dirt (dust) i even foud some pet toys in there once ha! ha!

Hope this helped!

Water collects on shelves and below the crisper bins at bottom


Your defrost drain hole is frozen closed.
Remove the back freezer panel and defrost the ice with a hair dryer.
Once the drain is clear poura 1/4 cup bleach in the drain hole.

Water on btm of glass shelves and water in bottom of frig


sounds like you have a gap in the door seal, which results in condensation forming inside unit. Use a blow dryer to heat the seal around the door and ensure that the fit is tight.

open the freezer compartment loo for ice build up on floor of frezer especally towards rear behind back panel. sounds like you have a clogged/frozen defrost drain tube. removing back panel of freezer will give you acess to drain trough, melt away the ice with a hair dryer, youll find a drain hole under there somwhere,pouring boiling water down the drain will clear it pretty quickly( i use a steam machine purchased from the infomercials)
