Your theory is correct. You will have to defrost the drain and clear any other obstructions to get the water draining correctly again. To do this you will have to go in through the freezer. Remove the back panel by removeing the 3-4 screws that hold the back wall in place. You will see the drain directly under the coil. It will be a small hole and it will most likely be covered with ice. YOu will need to defrost all the ice and clear the drain. If the coils are frosted up you may have other issues like a defrost heater that is bad. The defrost heater is directly under the coils and you can simply check for continuity through the heater.
The drain is sometimes difficult to defrost, I use a towel to dry water, and I use cups of hot water to pour onto the ice, then just dry up the mess as you make it. You can also rub the drain with your finger to help defrost. I also use a flexable ruber hose to blow air into the drain untill the drain is clear again. If you have any other questions please just ask. I hope this will FixYa. Please dont forget to rate me.

First of all the worst thing you can do is set your fridge on the highest setting even though it has it. That's live reving your car to the red line just because it has it. As far as your challenge is concerned, it sounds like a breach in the seal of the fridge or dispenser. Check to see if the ice despenser is closing properly after use and check the door seal to make sure it's closing tight when the door is closed. To do this, simply inspect it for any bad wrinkles, cracks, folds, etc. if none are visible close the door on a dollar bill and make sure it holds securly all the way around the door. I f it doesn't, the seal may need to be replaced and/or the door is warped. If you continue to have issues, post again, we will work this out.

I called Amana and found the "sealed systems" are still under warranty. It cost me $85 for a service call and the fridge is working. The problem was a plugged "capillary line."

I suggest first getting it checked. Maybe there is just a small leak which can be sealed and coolant refilled. If say the compressor is damaged or other major component then only the repair cost will dictate what to do next.
Refrigerators are not very complex and have relatively few parts. You will probably get satisfactory results from repairs.
