Leaking water periodically under the refrigiater

When a refrigerator leaks water like yours, it is common for the problem to be nothing more than a clogged defrost drain. When the unit defrosts itself, the frost melt water drips into a pan underneath the evaporator in the freezer, and goes through a tube from there to the bottom outside of the unit. Since the water cant go down this drain, it backs up on the freezer floor, then eventually the kitchen floor.

I have water collecting on the bottome of my side by side refrigerator on the frigerator sided un the crisper.

Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
Actually the leaking water is from the evaporator coil unit....(it is located at the back wall or underneath the freezer compartment). Under normal conditions,Self-defrost refrigerators usually dispose the water generated during the defrost cycle through a tube or channel that directs the water a pan (Known as Drip pan), commonly below the refrigerator unit....
The channel or tube is clogged and the water is leaking to the refrigerator/freezer unit, so you need to clear that blockage/contamination....Once the blockage is removed, the generated water will move through that channel/tube directly to the drip pan and there will no water on the floor in the refrigerator/freezer compartment. This is all you need to do....

Best of Luck,

Your token of appreciation in form of rating would be highly obliged,

Water is collecting on the top shelf.

You will have to empty your fridge and remove the back panel.clean it out by pouring warm water mixed with Baking soda into the drain at the back of the freezer compartment and let it drain into the drip pan at the bottom of the refrigerator. In the refrigerator section, find the screws that hold the control console securely to the roof of the refrigerator. Usually there are two of them towards the front. The front part of the panel will drop down and then you will see a plug to separate so now you can remove the entire control panel and sit it on the floor or kitchen table. Now you will see the hole going into the freezer section and the other hole going to the defrost pan under the refrigerator. I am suspecting the tube on the rear of the console which is on the floor or the table right now is either cracked or not fitting snuggly in the hole at the rear of the refrigerator. If you do not find any cracks, take some putty and wrap it around the end of the tube and then reinstall the console/control panel making a secure and tight fit into the hole.
