Water collects on shelves and below the crisper bins at bottom
Frig is freezer on top. Water periodically drips from bottom of freezer (defrost cycle?) Water collects on shelves and in bottom of frig under the crisper drawers. Thought maybe it was the icemaker..turned it off & shut off water supply..still getting the water. Ice is forming on bottom/floor of freezer (water is still turned off). The cooling veins under the frig were super dusty and I vacuumed. It also appeared that no water had been in the evaporation tray lately. With all of the water we've seen, I'd think there would be signs of water in the tray. Also, ice had formed in what I assume is the vent that allows cold air into the frig section. Freezer still works and items in the frig seem to be staying cold. The water collecting on shelves & in bottom of frig, and ice of floor of freezer are the issues for us.

Usually that is caused by a bad defrost heater thermostat or defrost timer. Failure to automatically defrost is the cause of freezing up.
If you don't feel up to doing the work yourself you should have an appliance repair shop look at it.
The gurgling is caused by water in the catch pan under the fridge. When you defrosted it some of the water made it into the drip pan (and maybe overflowed onto the floor). The fan inside the compressor area under and behind the freezer may be splashing in the excess water in the drip pan. This by itself is not a real problem since it is designed to automatically evaporate the water drained during automatic defrosting, but the excess water and potential overflow onto the floor can become a problem.
That water is from the melting frost of the automatic defrost cycle. Their is drain in the freezer behind the back wall under the evaperator coil that is blocked, so instead of defrost water draining it's pooling in the freezer or in some case espically on models with the freezer on the top,the water is leaking from the freezer vents into the fresh food compartment. The way to clear the drain is remove back plate and remove all ice build up and GENTLY make a small hole in drain through then totally flush w/warm water. The exact location of drain is under the coil behind back freezer plate in the center
Hi Patrick, Looks like you have a drain hole that is plugged up with ice, there is a easy way to fix it, I will refer you to this video that shows you how to clear the drain.
The water is coming from the defrost cycle in the top of unit . It drains down at the back of the light cover into a tube at the back. Get a phillips screwdriver and take it down to be sure tube is inserted properly. Get model number and go to.appliancepartspros.com to get a diagram.
open the freezer compartment loo for ice build up on floor of frezer especally towards rear behind back panel. sounds like you have a clogged/frozen defrost drain tube. removing back panel of freezer will give you acess to drain trough, melt away the ice with a hair dryer, youll find a drain hole under there somwhere,pouring boiling water down the drain will clear it pretty quickly( i use a steam machine purchased from the infomercials)
