Why is my Kenmore refrigerator leaking water under the crisper bins?

My Kenmore fridge model #363.9731783 leaks water about twice a week. I have to pull out the "crisper" bins, and clean up a huge puddle of water. I don't know where it is leaking from or why? This unit does have an ice maker, if that is an indication.

Water under the bins occurs in all top mount refrigerators when the drain system gets clogged or restricted. When the unit goes into a defrost cycle the water will run down into the refrigerator instead of down the drain. The first place I would suggest checking is the drain funnel. Over a period of time it's normal for it to build up with algae which will eventually stop it up. The drain funnel is located in the back of the refrigerator section next to the control housing. Before pulling it out to check, be sure to disconnect the refrigerator from the wall outlet. I hope this will help you. If you need more assistance you can resubmit your question with more details.
