Hi, thanks for using The first thing that comes to mind is the defrost drain being plugged and leaking down into the refrig. However, this drain is at the bottom of the evaporator behind the rear panel. These refrig's are a nightmare to pull apart the freezer section. They have a history of leaking through rusty drip trays, which would explain the brown stuff. You will have to remove the rear freezer panel to check this. Let me know if you get in there...
