My Fridge is leaking

Our fridge is about 10 years old and it works perfectly as it is intended. For the past week or two, however, we have 'consistently' found some "small puddles" under the fridge and I am wondering if it is a minor issue that can be fixed or should I plan a visit to a local Best buys? I pulled the unit away from the wall and cleaned the dust/crap as much as I could. I was also looking for a drain but I could not as someone suggested.

Thanks for the help in advance! Ed

Is it an old fridge? I remember our old fridge had this tray that had to be emptied every now and then.

First look under the front behind the grille and see if you have an evap tray. It might be cracked. Second, is it equipped with ice maker or water dispenser. If so Check your connections
