This sounds like the defrost drain line is clogged and frozen. Every 8-12 hours the defrost cycle melts the ice buildup on the coils and is supposed to drain out to the pan under the fridge. Once this is blocked or freezes up the next cycles continue to put liquid water over the existing ice which then freezes, etc. till finall the area is frozen enough for water to find it's way out the door seals. You will need to take the back interior panel off the freezer side to view the coils and drain line. It will take lots of hot water to melt the ice in the drain area and the drain line in order to run a cleaning tube (basically a piece of 1/4" tubing like the water line tubing a couple feet long that you can force down the drain to make sure it's not plugged). Once you push the cleaning tube down the drain and can see it come out the other end in the drip tray pull it back out and pour hot water down it once more to watch that it drains fast. That should do it!

Check under the base, the tube must be clear to the water tray, often there is a rubber flow restrictor, this either perishes or blockes, either way remove it, defrost over night and then turn back on, should then work ok within 24hrs. Regards Adbvisor

Take the metal back panel off the inside of the freezer, exposing the cooling coils. Below the coils, at the very bottom of the freezer compartment you will find a small drain hole. (Presently covered over with ice) Use hot (not boiling) water and a turkey baster to melt the ice and force hot water into the drain hole until the water runs out the drain hole (and into the defrost drain pan under the refrigerator) on it's own. This should be a Fix-Ya for your refrigerator.

Apparently it is the drain behind the freezer panel on the inside and it is blocked. It needs to be unblocked and cleaned. You remove the food and the rear panel on the inside of the freezer. With a hair dryer (carefully) remove all ice build up and then unblock the drain line going to the pan under the refrigerator. The drain line can be cleaned with bi-carb and hot water (not boiling).
