All you need to do, is defrost this unit with the doors open for 24 hours.
Then remove the inner wall of the freezer and clear the drain line behind that wall inside the freezer You can use a piece of stiff wire for this .
Be gentile with this but you will see the clog clear after this ;-)\

Hi the panel is inside the freezer it attaches with a few screws you should remove the shelf guides prior to doing this for ease.
Please rate kindly so I can stick with you especially since it will be a few days;-)

Yes the first pic is the one where you need to remove that metal aluminum plate.
Once you do you will see the drain clear that and you should be good to go. But first the unit must be full defrosted.
Im here all weekend as well for you.
Please rate kindly at this time so I can stick with you.

May I have the full modle # and the approx age of your fridge?
Hi thanks for posting your question, Its normal for this plate to get condensation on it, directly behind that plate are your cooling coils and a drain.
The drain is likely clogged.
What you need to do, since it is most likely just ice in the drain tube, is defrost that freezer for 24 hours with the door open.
Once thats done make sure the tube in the drain pan back there is clear sometimes even food particles get in there and cause the clog. I use a piece of fairly stiff wire to clear the drain line, but usually it will clear it self once it has been defrosted because most of the time it is just ice in there. Be careful not to puncture the plastic drain tube!
That will stop the water from leaking on the floor, because that drain tube takes the excess water during derfost cycles to the drain pan below the freezer.
