But I'll bet that the drain from the freezer compartment, at the back, is stopped up. This is forcing the melting ice to overflow out of any exit it can find. Empty the freezer and thaw it completely (a whole day!)then take the "floor" of the freezer out. You'll probably find that it's not completely thawed, or there is debris from the freezer blocking the ice-melt drain. Try cleaning it out, and you should be back in business. It may be a good idea to leave the fridge open to the air for a day or two, to let the insulation dry out. Best of luck Dan. Brian, your resident energy conservation freak.
