It very well could be the auto-defrost feature since it is activated at the same time. Do remove rear access panel and make sure there is water draining into the evaporator tray built on top of compressor. If the water is not draining, run a pipe cleaner inside to check for cloggs, and make sure water drain hole is big enough to drain the wire.

Why does drain pan overflow? How is water in pan suppose to go away before overflowing?

Are you sure it is the drain pan overflowing? If water is appearing on the floor every few days, it may not be getting to the drain pan (evaporator tray), due to a blocked drain channel. The evaporator tray will normally cope with the daily amount of de iced water of a frost free fridge/freezer.

Refrigerator leaks

If it a frost free fridge it should self defrost every 6 to 8 hours all by its self. If you see ice or frost buildup in side the freezer usually back wall harder to notice if the cooling fins are just under the freezer floor but above the fridge ceiling or better picture it as the fridges taint. Sounds like the fridge is having defrost problems and if it every once in awhile does go into defrost or you do it, all that water flows down a hose and out the back around the compressor. Heat from the compressor or other gadgets evaporate the water. If it only defrost a few times a year it is going to overflow the catch basin. Easy to check some times catch basin or drain hose move check back bottom or remove front cover look if bottom catch basin. Main fault is defrost timer stuck in run, location all over in or out, defrost element around cooling fins,defrost thermostat on cooling fins,wiring to / from / joining the last two.

What to do the ice bridge is too thick

First De-Frost. The same process can be speeded up by opening the Fridge Doors, remove the electric plug from the socket(i.e. switching off power) and wait for all ice to melt, drain the residual water and Re-Start the Fridge.
Regular defrosting(say Once in 10 days) will ensure there is no ice built-up!

Water on the floor

I am assuming it is a Frost Free freezer and the defrost cycle is draining onto the floor. There should be a plastic tray under the fridge to catch this water so it can evaporate. Remove the front grill and make sure it is in place and not damaged.

Freezer only freezing to 20 degrez

If the door was left ajar for any extended period frost has built up on the cooling coils. A complete defrost of the freezer should take care of the problem. Normally a frost free system will clear the ice from the cooling coil when the defrost time cycle happens. However frost may have built up in areas where the heaters can not readily remove it in a normal defrost cycle and shutting the unit down with the door open for about 24 hours should clear it out.
