Not an original solution - but a good one. Remove panels at the back of the freezer compartment to expose the heater unit or heater wire that defrosts the freezer coils and wrap a solid copper wire gently around the heater/ heater wire and place the loose end in the drain. This will conduct heat to the freezer drain and help keep it open. I did see a manufactured part in one of the appliance parts websites but it did not match my unit.

DRAIN TROUGH IS PLUGGED OR FROZEN. EMPTY FREEZER AND REMOVE LOWER TRAY TO SEE A HOLE ALL THE WAY IN THE BACK USUALLY IN THE CENTER. CHECK TO SEE IF WATER CAN DRAIN THROUGH BY POURING A CUP OF IT INTO HOLE. IF IT IS FROZEN POUR HOT WATER UNTIL IT THAWS, IF PLUGGED REMOVE THE OBJECT.

Your refrigerator has a defrost drain blockage behind the evaporator in your your freezer compartment. Some models like yours have leak in the turns as the water leaves the freezer. I recommend that you unplug and remove the cover to the evaporator and check the defrost condensate tray below the evaporator. A wet vacuum cleaner and poring a solution with clorox in the drain will help you clean locate the leak and where the blockage may be downline.. I do have the manual on yours and can help you solve this. Some times this is a factory defect and I can help you solve the freezing drain problem. Let me know, Sea Breeze

Remove the food from the freezer and the icemaker if equiped . Remove the air tower at the rear of the freezer section and remove the rear panel inside the freezer . Using a hair dryer to the drip pan , below the coils ( probably ice ) , starting at the center , defrost until you see the drain hole . Keep defrosting the hole ( hot water helps ) until water starts to flow down . Using a short piece of hose , insert it into the drain hole and blow . This should blow out any debris inside the drain hole . I would use a short piece of solid ALUMINUM wire ( 14-16 guage about 8 " long ) striped of all insulation , and insert it into the hole as far as possible , without any force . Wrap the other end about 1--1 1/2 turns around the black tube ( defrost heater ) above the hole . When the heater comes on , heat will transfer to the aluminum wire and keep the drain from freezing up again . Reasemble back panel , air tower , and , icemaker . Reinstall the food and its FIXYA'd .
