Behind the freezer rear interior wall is the freezer Evaporator coil ,under the coil is the defrost drain hole /trough .

You will need to remove every thing out of the freezer and remove the rear interior panel and defrost the drain trough and flush the drain hole opening to clear it .

This is a common issue with the drain line opening getting clogged with debris and freezing up and each time the unit goes into an auto defrost the water has to go some where and that is out onto the freezer floor.

I use a heat gun /hair dryer and hot water with a turkey baster to clean the trough and the drain line opening out and flush the hot water down the drain to make sure it is clear.
