SOURCE: water leaking onto floor
Angels, sounds like your defrost drain is frozen over. When the refrigerator is going into defrost it's draining through the front instead of the drain pan. You can remove the shelves and peel off the back cover and clear the drain by pouring hot water on the frozen drain hole. If you have a baster of some sort you could try to squirt the hot water through the venting on the bottom of the panel. Another way to to point a hair dryer on the drain hole. The best method is to remove the shelves and panel and make sure the drain is clear. Catriver..post back.

Shut the water off for one before it ruins all your floor. It probably has frozen and broken a line or the valve. You can go to this site and get a drawing on your fridge and parts if you need them.

This sounds like the problem I responded to for another user. I hope it works for you.
I got this when the J-trap on the back of the fridge was blocked, not allowing condensation to properly drain into the drain pan.
I solved this problem by pulling the black drain tube off the J-trap (you may need to loosen the holding clamp at the bottom of the tube), giving the J-trap (it's about 2" round) a slight twist to release it from the sheet metal, and carefully pulling it out. Be careful as the sheet metal is sharp. You will see a 1" PVC tube end that fits inside the J-trap. This must be inside the trap when reassembling.
Flush out the J-trap and reassemble.

The drain in the freezer is clogging. When the defrost switches on, the backed-up ice thaws and starts dripping down into the fridge area.
Easiest is probably to turn off the fridge, let it thaw, then check the freezer drain to see if you can unclog it.
Otherwise, you have to pull out the bottom and back parts in the freezer (which will probably have some sort of ice frozen to them). Once you see the drain pan, get a turkey baster and flat head screw driver. You'll have to make a hole in the ice above the drain and squirt hot water until you hear it start draining. The drain hole is off center to the right in the drain pan.
