SOURCE: Drain Pan overflowing
Refrigerators use different methods to eliminate the water, but they all use evaporation of some sort.This works,as most of the water in the drain pan comes from melted ice on the evaporator coil during the defrost cycle, and this is not very much. It sounds like you have excessive water in the pan. You stated the freezer/fredge is working properly. The condenser fan is running, I assume. Cleaning the dust off the coil will help the air flow. Most residential units do not have heating element in the drain pan. Your problem sounds like you are getting too much water in the pan. Have you noticed excessive ice in the freezer? Are the door gaskets in good shape. Does the unit have water and ice in the door? If so, where does the drain to, and has there been high usage of this?

sounds like you have a clogged defrost drain tube. removing back panel of freezer will give you acess to drain trough, melt away the ice with a hair dryer, youll find a drain hole under there somwhere,pouring boiling water down the drain will clear it pretty quickly( i use a steam machine purchased from the infomercials works awesome, after you clear it and all water drain down tube wrap a piece of solid copper wirearound the heater( black calrod heater right above the drain trough) and stick it in the whole maybe an inch or so. now everythime the heater comes on to defrost it will prevent the hole from freezing over

The rubber seal on the water filter is bad . Replace the filter in the bottom kick plate . When the filter goes bad , water will drip into the drain pan , causing it to overflow .
