Water accuulates every few days below crisper drawers
I am pretty sure you are having a defrost drain blockage problem. Most refrigerators defrost every eight hours and over a period of time the drain line that comes down from freezer into a cup like object top middle and back of the fresh food section (depending on the style refrigerator you have).Click Here=> Leaking Refrigerators Just What may Be Happening

No. There is, however, a drain hole in the back center that tends to get plugged. Remove the lower two drawers and see if it is plugged. It drains to a pan under the unitand behind the kickpanel

There is most likely a plugged drain in the freezer section. The easist solution can be to empty the refrigerator and unplug it over night. If this is not possible then the back or bottom should be removed to allow access to the drain and a hair dryer can be used to make defrosting go faster. still takes a while, if there is access in the back of the unit that can be the cause of the plug.

You have a clogged drain tube in the freezer . here is how to repairit. take off the ice maker if it has one. then remove the 1/4 ince screws in the back. the whole back panel will come off.depending on the ice build up you might have to defrost the unit. if you would like to easily fix it just unplugg the unit and let it defrost. defrosting will unfreeze the line. this will sovle you problem for a while but it will happen again.

Sounds like the typical defrost condensate line is stopped up and every time your refrigerator goes into defrost instead of water following the drain tube to the pan below your refrigerator where warm air blows over the water and returns it back into the air inside your home. This is a common problem that happens. Sometimes just the refrigerator leaning to left or right will begin the problem. Other times the tube gets backed up because of slime an crud and begins slowing the drain flow down to the point it backs up and spills over into freezer or fresh food compartment. Every refrigerator is a little different so click here=> REPAIR OF LEAKING REFRIGERATORS and scroll down to near bottom of page. Read and watch the You Tube movie clip and other material and if you have more questions ask. You may need to remove the rear panel in back of the freezer compartment or if your brand has dual evaporators you may need to go into the rear of the fresh food compartment. Not every Samsung has dual evaporators. here is your Service Manual=> RS265LA It does appear that you have two evaporators on your model. Look this may take a wet and dry vacuum and Clorox with warm water and once the drain is cleared you will not need to do this often. On page 17 is a view of the two evaporators. Watch the movie at the link above and it will be so much easier. Contact me if you run into problems.
