You have a blocked defrost drain. The easiest way to thaw it it to open the doors for 24 hours with it unplugged and allow it to naturally thaw. If you cannot be without a refrigerator for that long, the back panel from the freezer (inside) will need to be removed so you can thaw the drain manually. Let me know what you find.
