The problem was indeed a clogged frost water drain. I had to pull the frig out from the wall (found an incredible amount of dust accummulation in the alcove), then remove the vertical metal and horizontal cardboard covers to expose the drain catchpan. The 1/2" rubber drain hose end was only about 1/8" above the pan pointing directly into it perpendicularly. This was not enough clearance. There was a plug (formed by dust and water) in the end of the hose that came out easily when I 'roto-rooted' it with a screwdriver. The water flowed easily after that, but I went ahead and trimmed about 3/8" off the end of the hose and pushed it back into its slot. Then I cleaned as much as I could. The prevention is to keep the area behind the frig cleaned!

I have had the same issue with Fisher Paykel Active Smart fridge . This can be due to:
1) 12Volt fan in freezer is not functioning.
To test: open freezer door, place a magnet on magnet switch at the bottom of freezer where door seals(white plastic rectangle) It takes few seconds for fan to rev up so move magnet slowly until switch on. You can also close door and listen carefully if fan starts if unsure.
If fan works go to 2) 3)as defrosting resistance can be the trouble
2)If fan does not work . UNPLUG FRIDGE at the main plug
Empty freezer and defrost it if too icy (do not use sharp objects). Then on back panel you will see two holes on top. Put two hook tool and pull down and slightly forward until top lip is free. This is hard to do but the plastic panel is very strong so you can apply a bit of force there!!!
On the second panel is the fan, check wires are not broken (common cause of failure). unplug fan, you can check fan on 12V battery (+red). Buy a new fan if faulty and put freezer panel back.
3) If fan OK and you see a lot of ice on condenser (do not remove it by force, just let it melt completely) then the resistance is the cause of you trouble. It is delicate to remove and make sure FRIDGE IS UNPLUGGED! Do not force anything as condenser is very fragile and if you damaged it, your fridge can go straight to the dump. You can test the resistance with an Ohm meter to make sure internal resistance is broken or not. If broken replace it and your fridge will be fixed. If not broken then trouble is either with on board computer (very seldom) or the thermistance.

Find the drain line from the freezer to the evaporation pan near the motor. Often the line is visible on the back of the fridge. That line is plugged either with food residue or the collection point in the freezer is solid ice. The self defrost feature melts the frost and drains it to the evap pan. If you remove the floor from the freezer area, you will see the collection point. When the line gets plugged with food, no water drains and then freezes to block the line even worse. So, if there is ice at the collection point, remove it somehow, maybe a hair dryer, and then clear the line by blowing compressed air from the bottom of the drain hose through to the collection point.

SOURCE: Why is my refrigerator is
If it's a top mount, freezer on top, then this means your defrost drain is clogged. A quick fix is to let the fridge dethaw. A more permanent fix is to remove back panel on the inside of the freezer, defrost, hang copper wire from the heater element into the hole. This will prevent a re occurance.
If you have a duel evaporator, evaporator inside the fridge, then drain hole is probably clogged there as well.
