There is a leak somewhere in your defrost drain. Most times this is caused by a blockage near the area of the leakage. Below is a link to a very informative way to help you resolve the problem. Thanks.
Yes your model has 2 drip trays. 1 is below the evaporator inside the freezer and behind the back wall covering the evaporator. The other is below the refrigerator next to the compressor where the condenser fan heats the water and returns it back to the air inside your home. Thanks, Sea Breeze

This is probably because you turned off the fridge at the mains (to defrost??). To stop the flashing lights and to restore normal operation, turn both the Supercool and Superfreeze knobs counterclockwise to "off" and then back to the operating position. Thats all!

Make sure fridge OFF freezer OFF ... then turn mains on. ONLY turn freezer to max, after 30mins put fridge to 1care ... this should overcome the problem of the flashing lights. When both nice and cool turn settings down. it worked for me

The evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.
Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help. Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the back of the freezer.
