The water flows to the front because the evacuation hole at the back is blocked by dirt - clean it.
There are 2 possible causes for your freezer's problem:
1 - the coolant circuit is leaking and the fluid is lost = the freezing capacity is slowly dissapearing and will be totally gone very soon. Now it's still freezing at the bottom because the cold air is heavier then the hot air and settles down.
2 - the valves/thermostat commanding the circuit for the upper freezer are defective and they don't sent coolant to it = the upper freezer is not operational.
In either case a pro must inspect and repair the unit, this isn't what an average customer can fix.

My upright frost free freezer is leaking water onto the floor.


Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

You did not provide a model number so I can only be general. Your model number is on a label on the upper side wall.

You have one of three problems.

1.) A bad defrost timer.

2.) A bad defrost Heater.

3.) A frozen drain.

4.) A obstruction/leak - Large block of ice in the upper right hand corner of your cool coil.

GE upright freezer


If this is a frost free model the fan could be bad. If not frost free it is probably low on freon. I don't recomment fixing this as you can never really trust the freezer again. Most of the time the leak can't be found and adding freon is only a temp solution.

Not freezing equally


Look for frost build up on back wall at bottom the auto defrost may be out. Check if the evaporator fan is blowing. If not it's stuck by something or needs replaced. If not The sealed system may have a leak or restiction causing it to only work closest to the evaporator i.e. the lower shelf.
