I can solve your problem for you.
Self-defrosting refrigerators dispose of the water generated during the defrost cycle, usually via a tube or channel that directs the water to a pan at the bottom of the refrigerator. From the pan, the water normally evaporates. (See a more detailed explanation of this in the How Things Work section of our website).
If the tube or channel is clogged or obstructed, the water backs up and leaks into the inside of the refrigerator compartment. Then the water builds up at the bottom, inside of the refrigerator. When the water has built up for a time it may spill out of the front of the door opening. To fix this problem, clear the drain tube or channel and allow the defrost water to flow down to the drain pan.

You will need to replace the termination thermostat. What sounds like is happening is. Every 8 to 10 hr. your freezer goes into defrost for a set period of time. There is a termination thermostat that senses the temp at you evaporator coil in you freezer. When you heaters come on they defrost the ice from your coil. once the termination thermostat senses the temp has gotten to a preset degree, it cuts the power to the heaters. This keeps the heaters from staying on the whole period and making your freezer warm. After the pre set time period the timer turns the compressor back on. What it sounds like is happening is the termination thermostat is not opening, cutting the heaters off. By not doing so, it's letting your freezer get above freezing, melting your ice some. When the timer advances into cooling again it freezes your ice together. I would say it's your water valve leaking but that would make large pieces of ice that the ice maker has trouble dumping and also sometimes a large chunk that does not look like cubs. That would also eventually freeze the inlet tube closed..
