Tonight, get a battery flash light, turn it on, put it in the fridge and close the fridge door. Then turn off all the lights in the room. If you can see any light escaping around the fridge door, the door seals aren't working properly, and need replacing.
This is the main reason why too much water is being condensed and causing your fridge drip tray to overflow.
Fridges that are less then 10 years old have a lot of POWER. To get rid of the frost, wait until you have eaten most of the food up (maybe a few days), then unplug the fridge and leave the doors open. This will take care of the frost after several hours.
From then on, make sure that when your fridge is full, use a higher setting, and when it is near empty or half way full, use a lower setting. Keeping the freezer at a mid to low setting all the time should be fine, because its usually the fridge part that gives people trouble.You will have to judge on your own which setting is best (i.e you can tell when its good based on how cold the juice is in there, etc).
By adjusting the setting based on the amount of food in your fridge, it should prevent frosting.
The vent from the freezer to the fridge can be blocked with frost and is preventing the flow of cool air to the fridge.
This can happen if there is frost build up due to failure of the auto defrost timer.
So please check on the fan section , remove panel and see if there is frost or block, if so check the timer Heater and the thermostat.
It sounds like you have a cyclic defrost fridge,Kelvinators were originally fitted with heat assist thermostats,so in order for the fridge to come back on a yellow wire heater was run around the cooling evaporator in the fridge compartment start running again at approx +4C so when the element fused the fridge did not start again until approx +12C.So instead of replacing heater a different thermo was used that came back on at +4c deg regardless.Kind Regards.
My sister has the same fridge model. We've removed the door and the bottom bracket supporting the hinge had collapsed up inside the door. We're going to cut out a piece of steel (3-4mm thick) and glue it along the bottom of the door in order for the door hinge to insert into something solid. Looks like it's a weak point in the door construction. Pity Kelvinator wouldn't acknowledge the problem and come up with a solution (other than replacing the door at $340 - which is what we were quoted).
If you have the manual.... check under leveling your appliance.
I don't know Kelvinator but most have screws/bolts that can be turned behind the air vent cover at the bottom front of the fridge that will raise or lower the fridge. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.
