Probably drains during defrost cycle. It might be missing drip pan at bottom. Check for any missing parts at bottom.

    forgot to mention to look for the drain hole inside the unit. Make sure the plug is installed.

Water collecting in bottom of freezer


Unblock the drain hose. You may have to access it from the back of the unit and it may be frozen up so you may have to fully defrost the freezer

How do i defrost?


You have to remove all the food to a good ice chest with no ice. Pack it as full as you can before starting another one. You may need to put some in your refrigerator freezer. It will stay frozen for several hours while you melt the ice in the chest freezer. You can direct a fan blowing into it to speed up the melting. If it doesn't have a drain to catch the water in a tub you'll have to soak the water up in a towel etc. Don't chip at the ice to break it up quicker. You can damage the refrigeration coils.

Ice buildup in bottom of freezer--puddle of water on floor


this sounds like your freezer is operating properly, except that the drainage of the water when going through the defrosting mode is not draining properly, pooling on the bottom of the freezer and then freezing. Check the drainage hose for the defrost in the lower pan. I would remove everything, place in ice chest, let the unit completely thaw out and then inspect. I hope this is beneficial.

Water dripping into refrigerator from freezer


DRAIN TROUGH IS PLUGGED OR FROZEN. EMPTY FREEZER AND REMOVE LOWER TRAY TO SEE A HOLE ALL THE WAY IN THE BACK USUALLY IN THE CENTER. CHECK TO SEE IF WATER CAN DRAIN THROUGH BY POURING A CUP OF IT INTO HOLE. IF IT IS FROZEN POUR HOT WATER UNTIL IT THAWS, IF PLUGGED REMOVE THE OBJECT.

Leaking water in bottom of freezer


common issue.....sounds like a drain clog in the freezer compartment above. remove the freezer rear panel and totally defrost the evaporator area, directly under the evap you see( under all taht ice) a small drain hole that has become frozen over, try defrosting with either a hair dryer( not a heat gun too much heat youl melt everything) or by pouring hot water donw the drain until you get a free flow of water down the tube. after its clear reassemble and you should be fine

Water puddling in bottom of freezer which freezes


Tool needed: Screw drive with the insert tips can be used to remove screws use the end of the screw driver with out a philips bit or flat tip inserted. Remove frozen food to camping coolers igloo ice chests or coleman ice chests or a freezer in your home . Remove all racks and baskets to expose movable panels at the inside back of the freezer compartment.
Notice the 1/4" hex nuts remove the screws holding the panels at the back wall. Clear built up ice carefully. You now can take out the panels and expose the fan and cooling cool that creates the cold temperature on the freezer side.

Near the bottom is an aluminum U shaped pan with a shallow funnel indentation at the bottom. Clear ice from the funnel pan and inside bottom carefully. Sharp objects break ice nicely and can pierce the interior surfaces . Look under the cooling coil and at the back wall is a screw holding this soft metal catch pan in place. Remove the screw and carefully tip and slid out the catch pan tray. You now have access to the drain hole that is frozen closed or clogged. Place a large towel in the bottom of the freezer area to catch water. Pour hot tap water a half cup at a time into the drain area. Do not use boiling water the plastic inside a refrigerator or freezer can not tolerate high temperature. I have melted a freezer compartment in a GE with a hair dryer. Remove the water with a clean reag and add more warm or hot water repeat until the drain allows water to flow. stop adding water or the evaporation pan under the refrigerator will over flow.
Check the refrigerator about once a year for the freezeup problem or keep an eye on the bottom of the freezer looking for the build up of water frozen on the inside floor. The other solution get a new refrigerator.

Freezer stops and start


ice cream is always the last to freeze and a temp of minus -10 degrees is usually required to get it to get hard. if you put the ice cream in the door it will be especially tough to freeze. a good thermometor is a good investment as you can observe the temps. usually ten degrees or 20 degrees is what they run. yes they do cycle on and off as long as they hold temps thats good. the outside of the freezer gets warm because the hot compressed refrigerant is spread through piping near its surface giving up its heat of compression . setting the stat to max will freeze the ice cream eventually but utility bill suffers . good luck
