Question about Refrigerators
SOURCE: water leaking onto floor
Angels, sounds like your defrost drain is frozen over. When the refrigerator is going into defrost it's draining through the front instead of the drain pan. You can remove the shelves and peel off the back cover and clear the drain by pouring hot water on the frozen drain hole. If you have a baster of some sort you could try to squirt the hot water through the venting on the bottom of the panel. Another way to to point a hair dryer on the drain hole. The best method is to remove the shelves and panel and make sure the drain is clear. Catriver..post back.

There's a drain hole in the freezer side behind the bottom drawer in the back wall that must be clogh ; put hot water into it untill melted the ice and keep pouring water to clean the drain (don't worry , the water goes to an evaporative tray) .Keep the drain clean by putting every 3/4 months half a cup of clorox or bleach.

the hair dryer is a bad temporary fix. The question is why does it continue to freeze up. there are a few possibilities. One is an over or under charge of refrigerant which is unlikely. It would have done this from day one. the other is that the evaporator coil is icing up due to some dust or dirt. this slows down the air flow across the coil and then the ice eventually blocks off the air flow. The fridg is like your house. It has a supply air and return air side that must be kept clean and free from obstruction. also one of the fans may not be working. This will definitely stop the airflow
