Leaking kenmore fridge

I have a kenmore fridge that is leaking water. Attached is a picture of the area where water has frozen above a drain. A few hours before I took the picture the frozen area was went. If I get a picture of that I ill upload that also. Anyhow why is this happening?

Welcome to the forums.

A model number would be helpful here.

A picture of ice by a drain doesn't help me much.
Is this just a fridge ? Usually only freezers have a drain plug.

Usually when you get water inside of a fridge it's due to a frozen/clogged defrost drain tube. There is a tray below the coil that directs the water, that occurs when the unit defrosts, towards the back of the fridge where it follows a drain line down to a drip pan over the hot compressor.

I can't access Kenmore/Ca. products.

You left a picture above and said you had water. Is this in the fridge or the freezer ?
I also left you info in my first post.
