Ok. I know why this is happening. Or at least in my case.
The coil for the Fridge is stored behind the center panel when looking directly into the the Fridge.
What happens is the drain for the coil becomes iced up. It then wont drain and when the fridge goes into defrost mode the melted water will run out of the bottom of the center panel. This is difficult to see due to all the shelves in the way. i noticed this because I could see ice through the vent holes in my center panel.
To fix this:
Take all the items out of the fridge.
Take all the shelves out so the center panel is exposed.
Remove the 3 screws at the bottom of the panel and single screw under the cover of the shelf rail. (This one is a little hidden) pop off the plastic cover first.
Now you can pull the panel off.
(Note. This can be a little difficult to get off because you have a ton of ice behind there keeping it stuck to together. Just ease it off as much as possible.
When you get this off you'll most like see alot of ice in the tray that the water is draining into. chip this ice away and then I used Hot water to pour into the drain. I would then use a shop vac to **** the water out and put in more hot water until the ice plug is removed and the water can flow freely to the drain pan under the fridge.
That is it. I own this fridge and I've been tired of having to **** water out of fridge with a shop vac every 2 weeks. So I decided to resolve this myself.
*disclaimer. I'm just a DIYer not a Samsung repair person.
Good Luck and I hope this solves your issue.

I have the same problem!!! We need a class action lawsuit against Samsung for this problem on their French Door fridge. Instead of fixing it they want the consumer to pay for repair. NO MORE SAMSUNG PRODUCTS FOR ME!!!!!
