Question about Kelvinator Refrigerators
Good morning Barbara, from what you are describing it sounds like the evaporator drain is clogged. You need to empty the freezer and remove any access panels to get to the drain. Get a bowl of hot water and a turkey baster,then use the baster to force the water into the drain to clear the blockage. Not real familiar with that model,so check under the vegetable compartment to see if the drain is under it first. Hope that helps.

69....hard to know from here. What heats up and becomes quite humid? Newly restarted refrigerators take about 12-24 hours to cool down. They should be opened very infrequently during that period, if possible.. Do you hear the compressor and fans? Have you properly set the cooling controls?

SOURCE: fridge collecting water inside
The drain is clogged.
If you want to DIY then here it goes:
Some models have access to the drain by an elbow on the outside back of the Ref. Disconnect the drain line here and if you find the clog, great. If there is no visible drain line and elbow on the outside then...
Hopefully you can access the drain in the back top center of the fridge. This will require removing plastic covers, usually a few screws is all you have to deal with. You must get everything removed so you can see the drain hole in the back wall then you can use a tube and a little air pressure to clear the drain from that point down. If this is clear and you don't find any cloggs from that point down then the clog is at the top of the drain which is in the freezer.
This is going to require a little more work.
1. Take everything out of the freezer, put it in a cooler or just pile it in the sink.
2. Take the icemaker out.
3. Take out the back panel so you can see the cooling coils.
4. The drain hole is in the center directly under these coils but may not be visible because of ice in the drain pan.
5. Use a hair dryer to melt this ice and clear the drain so water flows down.

You have a clogged drain tube in the freezer . here is how to repairit. take off the ice maker if it has one. then remove the 1/4 ince screws in the back. the whole back panel will come off.depending on the ice build up you might have to defrost the unit. if you would like to easily fix it just unplugg the unit and let it defrost. defrosting will unfreeze the line. this will sovle you problem for a while but it will happen again.

Your refrigerator has a drain that leads to the exterior drain pan beneath the refrigerator. Occasionally this drain can become clogged resulting in standing water inside your refrigerator. A similar drain exists in the freezer, which when clogged results in ice build up on the floor of the freezer.
The drain is located either on the floor of the refrigerator, beneath the vegetable crisper, or in the wall behind a drain funnel.
Clear the drain by forcing a solution of water and bleach or water and baking soda into it with a basting syringe. If the solution will not flow through, slide a length of ¼ inch flexible tubing into the drain tube to push the clog through to the drain pan. Remove the tubing after clearing the clog.
NOTE-(This may be a leveling issue as well)
It is important for the refrigerator to be level. If it is not level, doors may not open or close properly and may not seal tightly. Also, drainage from the defrost cycle might be impaired as might the ice making cycle. The appliance was engineered based on it being installed in a level position. While there may be some tolerance for out-of-level installation, the appliance will operate at its best when properly leveled.
Place a level on top of the refrigerator near the front. Do not put it on the door because the door may not be aligned with the refrigerator case. Check that the refrigerator is level from side to side. Next turn the level to check that it is level from front to back.
If it is not level, adjust one or more of the adjustable leveling feet until it is level. The feet are bolts that can be turned to raise or lower the refrigerator. If they cannot be adjusted with your fingers, use a crescent wrench or pliers.
If you have an ice-maker, it should also be checked for level after first leveling the refrigerator. An ice-maker that is out of level will spill water into the ice bin or into the freezer. It can be repositioned by loosening the mounting screws, adjusting it for level and then re-tightening the screws.
