Occasional Water on floor

I have a Maytag Model MBL2258ex3 and there is ice on the bottom of it and then water seems to be on the floor in front of the Refriegerator. the water is not all the time but at least 1-2 times a month. so we take the ice out from the bottom and then when it ices up again then it has water on the floor.

Cause 1

Clogged or Freezing Defrost Drain

If the defrost drain is frozen, the water will overflow the drain trough and drip down to the bottom of the compartment. This water can eventually leak onto the floor. Check the defrost drain to determine if it is clogged or frozen. If the defrost drain is frozen, thaw the ice. In addition, flush the drain with hot water to ensure that it is clear of debris.
