Check the door seals on both the freezer and fridge section. If they are ripped or rolled they will not seal the door properly and humidity can enter into the unit causing the water. Usually I have found a torn section on the bottom of the fridge door but examine them both with the doors open and closed to see how they are seated against the cabinet when closed.
If the seals look to be good you are having a drainage problem when the unit goes into defrost. Let me know if you need a step by step for the drainage issue if the seals are fine.

Water in bottom of refrigerator coming from freezer (not really sure of the exact model as I'm not home to double check).


If water appears on the floor in front of the refrigerator once or twice a day, it could be due to a clog in the defrost drain tube. The usual evidence of a clogged drain in a side-by-side refrigerator is ice under the bottom basket in the freezer compartment, in addition to a puddle of water on the floor. Try watching the YouTube videos like this one:

Water in bottom of Roper Refrigerator/Freezer Unit


I have the same problem. I suspect the drain line for the auto defrost is clogged and so the water is dripping down into the fridge. (The water from the auto defrost cycle is supposed to drain into a pan under the fridge where it evaporates over a period of a few days). I have yet to locate the drain line though.
