    well you could have a pan that is too full but not likely a comon leak is either from the water line going to the unit to feed the icemaker or the valve itself when it fills the Icemaker you will have to pull the unit out and look inthe back of the unit it is on rollers so it should pull out pretty easy and check around for the water spots

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 on floor in front of freezer section every day or so.

At the back of the freezer is locate the evaporator and below it is a drip pan to collect the water produced during the defrost cycle. Some equipment defrost every 12 hours so that is why you see the ice formation at mornings. You need to flush the drain hose by blowing with compressed air, or suction ut from its end below the outback of the unit. Also you can use a flexible ;plastic rod and carefully pass it thru the hose from the bottom ow the drip pan.

Water dripping outside the collector

I think that there is a 90 degree bend in the outlet on the bottom right front side of the collection tray that gets pluged with dirt, line etc. You can see this when you remove the collection container from the unit. I used a small piece of wire to clean out the hole and now the water goes into the tank and not onto the floor.
