next remove the evaporator fan cover and under the evaporator will be a silver tray with a hole in it this is the drain for the defrost systems and some times they get frozen the best way to clear them is with a eureka 350 hand held steamer you can get at Lowe's fairly cheap you can also find about 1000 other uses for it a round the house

problem could be door seals not sealing completely and hence excessive ice formed on evaporator and excess water when it melts. however, i have found this problem many times with large larder fridges and really found no cure.
towards the bottom of the back wall, there is a gulley with a drain hole in the middle. this drain is blocked. clear it with something flexible and make sure water flows away freely

You should be able to see the drain under the coil. Part 804 on this diagram. 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 drian hole has become stopped up and ice has accumulated in the the drian hole. You will need to unplug the fridge and remove the cover on the back (located at the bottom, 6 screws). On the freezer side there is a drian hole with a rubber 90 and a clear line that runs to the drain pan. Remove line and unstop. Don't not put the line back on yet.
Now for the fun part, remove the basket and the two bottom shelves from the freezer. Half way up the back there are 2 screws that need to be removed. After removing screws pull up on the top cover to so you can remove the bottom cover. The bottom cover maybe froze to the coils and to the inside drain pan. Break the ice with a butter knife, and remove cover ( do not hit the coils). Now you need to break the ice that is froze to the the pan and under it. Once you have remove all the ice you will see the drain hole, use a small pointed object to break ice that is in drain hole. Now you can put the drain line back on and make sure that the other end is in the drain pan under the fridge. Now reassemble the fridge and plug it back up.
It took me about 20 minutes to do this.
Hope this helps.

Do you live in a very humid environment? Do you open and close the doer repeatedly? Both of these factors contribute to the water tray getting overfilled. Also if you are in a very humid area the tray will not be able to evaporate all the water.
Check also to see that the underneath area of the fridge has been vacuumed of as much dust as possible, especially on the coils. Poor airflow caused by excessive dust will contribute to the water not evaporating as fast as it should. Be aware that the water you see comes from the FREEZER section where the cold coils are located. Try hard not to put wet things in the freezer and try to keep it closed as much as possible. In the drier months does this happen?
