SOURCE: FF200EP Fridge Freezer - water
I had the same problem, the fridge would leak overnight (usually) I found with some more searching the answer..... try it at you own risk!
Here are 2 detailed answers depending on your circumstances/technical ability....Turn off fridge....
1. Defrost fridge...catch all the water
2. Work quickly....
Remove drawers, at the back of the fridge there is a panel with 5 phillips screws (note that there are long and short screws). Remove the screws and the panel. (if you chose the second option then this will be "frozen in place" so you will get crunching noise when you peel it away - so be careful when removing it). At the top of the panel is a connector that powers the fan, squeeze the 2 sides in to remove. This will allow the panel/ducting to be removed from the fridge. (If you chose option 2 you will now probably see a large lump of ice over the drain hole).
Remove ice or debris from drain hole, re-asssmble not forgetting to connect the fan again!!!) then repower the fridge following the instructions as you will get the alarms... the fridge cools and the warning lights dissapear.......24 hours on mine is OK!

This is typically caused by the defrost drain. I have put together some instructions on how to resolve this, follow the link below and let me know if it helps.

Clean the drain pan and drain line in the back of the freezer section
underneath the evaporator coil. Make sure water drains when you
pour it in. If it doesn't - also clean drain tube on the back of the
unit behind the cover. When done - put the tube exactly where it was.
Good luck! :)

The evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.
Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the inside of the freezer at the bottom of the rear cover.
Part 224 on this DIAGRAM is your drain tube.
