My brand new frigidaire overflowed everywhere and there is still water in the bottom. I checked the overflow float and it goes up and down. Not sure if it is just something odd or if I need to try and track down someone to come fix.

The outlet of the cone filter holder is clogged. Normally its just a hole you can clean out but some units have a valve that is pushed up/open by your coffee pot. That valve may be clogged or if you changed the coffee pot it may not be opening due to the different pot. Clean valve or just remove it so the coffee will run into coffee pot.
Try getting a coolant tester & making sure that you coolant/water mix is right. Also make sure that you're using the right type of coolant for your vehicle. After that I would check the 2 hoses to make sure neither is plugged. If you have too much water in your mix, it could get hotter and overflow.
Coolant is oil based. The oily mess in the overflow could be very old coolant. Or it could be engine oil from a leaking head gasket. The rusty stuff on the floor inside the car could be from a leaking heater core.
Stop me if this has NOTHING to do with your problem (or if it's already been solved)...I don't know a lot about cars so...My Ford Taurus kept overflowing antifreeze from the reservoir cap. Car started to over heat and kept spilling"/dumping" antifreeze every time I turned the car off. The antifreeze reservoir had been replaced less than a year prior, and water pump, radiator, etc looked at. I got a free estimate that stated my water pump was NOT the issue, but I did need a new radiator and my reservoir tank needed to be replaced (again)....$800 parts and labor.... However...I noticed the overflow holes on the tank, and also that the orange liquid (antifreeze), was also spilled around the cap lid. I also noticed the CAP on the antifreeze reservoir would loosen when tightened completely- hence, not sealing correctly. So I went to the dealer, bought a new reservoir cap for $15, replaced it, and never had an issue after! I also found out that the CAP was a DEALER PART ONLY, and when the tank itself was replaced, the CAP was the OLD one! Problem fixed! Maybe it's similar? Or something "more serious".
you will need to find out the brand name of your flush/fill valve. some valves merely twist to achieve a new fill level. others work differently. UNLESS, it is the kind with the float ball at the end of a rod. In that case, just bend the rod slightly down if the tank is overflowing.
Most modern flush units have built in overflow protection, if the water level rises above the flush device then water runs into the toilet itself rather than out of the overflow pipe to the outside as in older toilets.
You could always check by taking the top off the cistern and push down the float device with your finger to see what happens!
