Is this a split unit? The drain line is probably clogged. If you have a shop vac you can use it on the drain line outside and clear the clog or maybe use something like drano. A little Clorox added to the drain pan every now and then will help keep the drain line from getting clogged. (Just a couple tablespoons)

Water freezing on bottom of freezer


The defrost drain pan is plugged and not allowing the water to drain into the pan under the refrig. Remove the cover on the back wall of the freezer and clear the drain by flushing with hot water.

The water builds up on the bottom of my fridge under the bins. It is dripping down the inside back wall from the top area


Hello, this sounds like you have a blockage in the drain tube, remove panel back/bottom of freezer..you may see ice build up...melt ice with hair dryer/heat gun...you will see a pan below evaporator...melt ice in pan...dry water up in pan with paper towel...now you should see a hole in pan that leads to drain tube...pour some hot water in pan..wait a couple minutes..mop up water and repeat this step 2-3 times....once you have done this find some flexible curtain wire or electrical wire..poke down the hole until you see the water drain..now it is clear..put back panel back and you are good to go. The reason you see water in the fridge is because the water has been leaking into the freezer and down the vent into the fridge instead of running into the drain hole...Please feel free to comment again if you need any further assistance.
