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)

This is a common issue on some fridges. It is caused by:
1. Broken drain pipe.
2. Clogged drain pipe.
most of the times, the drain pipe gets clogged. It is hard to clean and not easy to replace. It should be visible at the back of the bottom of fridge.
Removing the vegetables compartment, you should be able to find it. If you are a handyman, you may be able to replace it, but it is not an easy job. Quite dirty job I may say.
I hope this helps.

the drain tube from the freezer to the lower compressor area is plugged with ice or debris,and when it defrosts the water in the drip pan behind the evaporator back cover inside the freezer thaws and cant drain down and overflows down thru the damper vent door to the refrigerator,remove the rear panel inside the freezer shut off unit and let thaw,then take a wire and work it down this drain hole till water comes out at the bottom of this drain tube located in the rear

Open this diagram and see #23. Remove this and at the bottom you will see a drain hole which is blocked. Using a solution of baking soda and hot water and pour it down till it runs free.
If it is frozen, defrost with a hair dryer.
