If the freezer is on top then empty out the freezer and remove the bottom and back liner of the freezer compartment usually phillips screws. In the back you will see the freezer coils along with a defrost element. Below these two items u will see a drip tray that collects water from the coils on defrost cycle, in the center of the pan will be a drain hole that connects to a hose that leads to a pan under the refrigerator.Normally the water is collected there and evaporated. The hole in the tray in the freezer is clogged. Thaw it and clean it until you can pour water in it and it goes to the pan down below. please rate me

Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use
and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater
comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost
drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the
freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.
Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.

This could be for a couple of reasons. The compressor itself could be bad. The relay and/or overload could have burned out. I have seen just simply a wire has come unplugged. You will need to *UNPLUG* the refrigerator from the wall, remove the cover on the bottom rear. Feel the compressor to see if it is warm. If it is, it has been trying to start and could be just the starting relay. If not, the overload could be burned out. BUT with either symptom, the compressor could still be bad. You will need a multimeter to check it for shorted, or open windings. If you are not familiar with these things, please get someone with the expertise to diagnose it.
