well if you hat the freezer on top normaly air leaks inside freezer through the drain tube, that air turns into condensation and creates a ice and cloges your drain. now water can drain down to pan everytime ref goes into defrost , and water leaks to bottom section to air ducts and air returns. there are several ways to solve this problem the cheapeste way is to unplug refrigerator for 2 days then plug back up and it should go back to normal another way is to install a heat probe on your drain attached to your defrost heater , and add a grommet on drain tube that will let water drain but it will keep air out and that will solve your problem.

The drain in the freezer is blocked. Just below the cooling coils is a drain, when the defrost heater cycles on the water is suppose to go down the drain and into a pan under the ref.

Every ten to twelve hours your refrigerator activates a heating element around the evaporator to defrost the accumulation of frost that develops on the evaporator. Behind the back panel there is an evaporator pan it has a rubber grommet with a hole in it this is your defrost drain hose it is clogged. Unplug or switch refrigerator off at breaker panel, remove panel covering evaporator area (rear panel in freezer), use a hair dryer or hot water to unclog defrost drain a turkey baster works well to make sure the hose is unclogged.
the water that drains down this hose accumulates in the defrost drain pan in the base of the refrigerator under normal operation the heat from the refrigeration system evaporates this water. The drain pan has a limited capacity so do not poor more than 20-20oz of hot water down the hose after you unclog it. If you poor to much it wont hurt anything just make a mess youll have to clean up.

follow the floor to back and you will find a trough with a hole in the center..it's clogged..a semi stiff wire or I use flexible tubing and run it down the hole to clear blockage..run hot water down it to check it is clear.

The defrost drain hole in the bottom rear portion of the freezer is frozen shut. Turn off the fridge,use a hair dryer to defrost the drain hole. Pour a 1/4 cup bleach into the hole after is is cleared out. Turn the fridge back on.
