Question about Refrigerators
Make sure the fridge is sitting level.
Check the cooling panel/ coils on the inside at the back. There should be a collecting channel at the base with a small hole. This is a drain that leads to a pipe - that ends up in a tray on the compressor.
Very often this gets blocked with grey gunge (pleasant I know)
Mop it up, and use a squirt of cleaner to clear it. (use a baster of water to unblock it if needed.) Try to use as little water as you can. The evaporator tray only holds about a cupful.

Tips for a great answer:
It may be your drain hole at the back of the fridge has become blocked.
There will be a channel at the back (or side) of the fridge that collects condensation with a drain hole out of the back of the fridge. The drain hole becomes blocked with mould / gunge causing the excess water to overflow and puddle in the bottom of the fridge.
The hole may be gently cleared with a small diameter rod or stick.
