Check that the door is closing up tight, if its even just a little bit open it sucks in hot warm air and when this cools it has a lot of water in it, this is were the water is coming from, also if the door is open a lot of times a day that will cause it too, some people leave there fridge door open every time they get things out of there fridge and dont close it untill they put the stuff back in? and all the cold air has fallen out the bottom by then,,so the poor fridge is working its head off and getting no were fast,

Hi,

The defrost drain is located just under the cooling coils in the back of the freezer. You will need to unload the food and remove the shelves from the freezer. Take the back panel off from inside the freezer and you will see a hole just below the coils. Flush it with hot water using a turkey baster or small hose. See the link below for more details.

Good day.
Water can only come from one place, where the frost is melted off the coil in the freezer during it's normal defrost cycles that occur daily.
Two styles. One style allows this condensed water to run down the back wall of the inside of the refrigerator, under the crispers and thru a hole in the bottom of the cabinet into a drain pan positioned
under the hole.
Possible missing pan, not positioned properly, or crack in the drain pan itself.
The other style drains the water to a hose mounted on the back of the machine, down and then into the pan.
Possible hose blocked, not connected properly, or the other items as described in first style.
It's a look-see type of repair.

Behind the panel in the freezer there is a drain hole that is underneath the evaporator.  It is frozen over.  Take the back panel off and get all of the ice out and run hot water down the drain until it is clear.  When the unit goes into defrost some of that ice melts and drips down thru the vent into the fridge section.
