Not sure where the water is leaking from, but it pools up under the Meat & Cheese Drawer - causing it to overflow between the seal of the drawer and refrigerator which then causes it to go down into the freezer drawer and ultimately causing the freezer drawer to freeze and the eventually leaking onto the floor when we try to open the drawer - at this time we can not use this drawer because of this issue - What could be causing this issue?

Hi, another member had this same problem:

Then look at my post #2 in response. Check you refrigerator evaporator drain pan first. Your model uses that exact same drain pan.

There is a service bulletin about this. I'm attaching it below. Look on Page 3 and see if the refrigerator evaporator drain pan is BOWED in the middle.

--->The evaporator drain pan should be seated flat and not bowed upwards in the middle (SeeFigure 4). A bowed drain pan may prevent water from properly draining. Ensure proper alignment of the drain pan. If the pan is cracked or permanently deformed, it must be replaced with one of the pans in the kit.

Here's the refrigerator evaporator drain pan it says to order if yours is BOWED:

And follow the instructions in this service bulletin, it does tell you how to remove it.

Let us know how it goes.
