If it's flooding, it's NOT the drain pan. It's probably the water valve has gotten stuck in the open position. Hope this helps!

Your defrost drain is clogged and now the defrost drain trough has filled with ice causing the water from your defrost cycles to flow into the fresh food section. You will need to clear all ice form thr drain area and this is done thru the freezer wall and some models also have a removable bottom panel in the freezer that has to come out also to get to the drain. You can do this it will just take a little time. About an hour for a first timer with little experience. Good luck and hope this helps

most likely you have a clogged drain,when the fridge goes into defrost it melts the ice off of the evap coil and it drains down to where the compressor is in the bottom section of the fridge,if the drain is plugged up the water will leak into the fridge section,take out all the food and shelves and remove the back wall of the freezer,if you know where the timer is or if it has a timer you can advance it and turn the heater on to help you out or unplug the unit so the fan isn't blowing or shut off the control,with a hair dryer melt all the ice,where ever you see styrofoam try not to leave the hair dryer in one place to long you can damage the styrofoam,the vents are under the fan,you can put a plate or something inside the fridge and pour hot water down the vents to melt out the ice if the vents have ice in them and it melts the ice faster and won't damage the styrofoam,now when you have the ice melted i use a steamer to clear the drain but if you don't have one you can use a turkey baster or a piece of hose and blow through it,anything you can think of to blow through the drain line,when you think you've cleared it pour hot water down the hole,if like a half a cupful goes down it's clear if it stays there it's not clear and you'll have to blow it out again,if you have any electrical wire with the ground wire in it you can use the copper wire wrap it on the heater or near it if it's a glass heater and when the heater comes on the wire will heat up and stop the drain from freezing in the future,stick it in the hole as far as it will go and leave a little extra so you can wrap it around the heater or like i said if you have a glass heater attach it to the metal frame as close to the heater as you can and you should be fine,they sell heater probes at the parts store also,let me know how you make out
