Very common problem I have repaired many times , The drain is frozen or plugged.
remove the back panel in the freezer section to get to the evap./cooling coil , then check the pan under it , there is a small 1" drain hole at the bottom that may have ice in it or its clogged with something else.
Use hair dryer or similar to remove ice then get a wire or something similar that is firm to use to snake out and clear that drain hole you want to get about 10 inches down into it.
Pour bleach into evap pan and let it sit for a bit. [10 minutes]
Then to know its cleared well pour a cup of water into the evap pan then check the pan under the unit at bottom behind kickplate to ensure the bleach and water has made it to this pan.
If unit is now draining here , wipe remaining water off top of ref. compartment and by the next day it will usually stop.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
You clean the cell by soaking it in warm soapy water in the kitchen sink: "
soak the Electronic Collector Cell in warm
water in a kitchen sink or bathtub. Mild dish detergent (powder
or liquid) may be added to the water to help break down the
dirt on the Collector Cell. The Collector Cell should be allowed
to soak for two to three hours."

I have a sharper image ionic breeze hybrid gp that ran fine for years unitl it recently started sparking / arcing at the base of the grid blades and always in the same spot. I cleaned it several times but the sparking always came back and the unit went into either "drying grid" or "attention required" mode. The solution I found was to stand the removable grid in 2 inches of Pine-Sol cleaner 50/50 diluted with water for 24 hours then brush again with the cleaning brush and hot water. Presto! No more sparking.
