Apparently when the refrigerator goes into defrost mode the water is not getting into the pan at the bottem of the unit.

I took the pan out and think I replaced it properly, but I still have the situation repeat itself.

any suggestions?

the pan looks like it slides into a V shaped metel rod unit in the back and into a slot in the front.

This is a plugged condensate drain. The drain is located underneath the evaporator. It's probably iced over. Hot salt water will help clear it. Some disassembly required. Batteries not included. Void where prohibited.

Sub Zero also makes a drain heater for alot of the units.....other ones there is a new floor in the fridge  (models with bottom mount freezers)  and and a drain heater kit  ..... then some alos have heaters for the condensate pans for better evaporation if the leak from on the floor....

:shock:

realized I never followed up.

the defrost drain line is in the refridge part

the defrost tube was not seating in the drain pan properly

could not just slip the drain pan in, had to be sure the tube was in the pan.
