If you remove the rear panel from inside the freezer, you will find the drain for the defrost cycle right under the aluminum evaporator coil. That drain is plugged. Thaw that hole using hot water only, NOTHING SHARP! Once thawed, it will restore proper drainage and stop the leaking and sheet of ice you are now seeing! :)
