kenmore refrigerator water leaking

I have a kenmore fridge model 106 5388092 type C18TFA94
it is self defrosting and now there is water pooling at the bottom of the fridge under the drawers. Is something plugged up near the freezer section and if so where could I start to unplug or at least look for a problem

Unfortunately you have to remove the cover over the coils in the freezer section which usually means taking everything out of the freezer. There is a drain pan under the coils that catches the water which goes into a small tube to dump it in a pan under the fridge where it can evaporate away. That drain tube may be clogged and it's usually clogged there at the top where you can easily clear it out. Try to remove as much as you can from the top without forcing the clogging material down into the pipe. After you've cleared the tube pour a little water in the catch pan to make sure it's draining properly before you re-assemble the cover.
