Water in bottom of fridge

About every week I remove about 30 oz. of water from inside my fridge.

The water collects at the bottom, under the fruit bins.

The fridge is about 10 years old.

The water is cold. The walls of the fridge are not wet.

We do not have an ice maker as part of this fridge.

The freezer is above the refrigerator.

If I don't remove the water, it eventually overflows the small indent in the bottom of the refrig where the water is collecting and overflows out of the fridge and on to the floor.

Any ideas what might be the problem ?

Could the back wall get wet and you don't see it? I haven't seen mine in a while. When the ref defrosts it melts the frost into a pan under the evaporator and thet water is pooled to 1 spot and goes down a tube to under the ref where it evaporates. If the hole is blocked by "junk" or if it is frozen over becase the little heater that heats the pan is broke it will overflow. I would check this out first. Just a thought.
