Water leaking inside of refrigerator from freezer
The defrost drain is frozen, you need to take the cover off inside the freezer and there will be a drain hole probably coverd with ice, you will need to pop most of the ice out first then I use a turkey baster and a tub of hot water. Squirt the hot water in the hole over and over again untill it drains. Then just wipe everything down. Problem solved.

Water is leaking onto top shelf of fridge. It is a top freezer.
Sounds like you have a frozen drain in the freezer. You can remove the back panel of the freezer and take a turkey baster and run hot water down the drain line to clear it. Once its cleared you will want to dump an additional cup of water down to make sure that its clear. This will stop the defrost tray from overflowing when the unit goes into defrost. This is where the water is coming from.
Hope this helps _MJ_

Water leaks in from freezer. eventually filling
Maybe, Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use
and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater
comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost
drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the
freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.
Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end
because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the
evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it.
Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing
it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough
to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils
on the lower back of the freezer

Hold the flap in .....the light should go on solid as long as your hand isnt blocking the beam. There have been lots of modules (the motor and brain of the I/mkr) breaking. I recommend replacement of the IDIM. Is there any water in the mold?? Where are the ejector blades loacted?? Are they stuck down in the mold?? Do they rotate easlily by hand?? These are signs of the broken module.

How to defrost kitchenaid refrigerator
With an ice build up this much, the auto defrost wont have any chance of working so you will have to do a manual defrost.
Just turn off the power and wait a few hours for the thing to fully defrost. You can help things along by using a hair dryer, but avoid sharp objects and scrapers as you may damage something.
You will have to store the things from the refrigerator in someone else's fridge or in foam boxes while you do this to avoid damage to the food.
When you open the fridge door in the future to get things in or out, try to not leave it open for more than a few seconds at a time as this will help avoid it doing this again. Each time you open the door, you let moist warm air go inside and this contributes to the ice build up.
