the tray at the bottom which collects defrost water usually has its own heater or a section of the main heater runs close to it. check this part of the heater has continuity. an old trick as well which sometimes works is to wrap some copper wire round the heater and lead this to the drain hole. conductiuon of heat thro the copper helps keep the drain clear. this is a common problem across all makes

Remove back of unit and check defrost heater has not become detached, otherwse the is only two possibilities, one a defrost fault and although you say the defrost tube is clear the only reason it does not flow is due to a restriction, what can happen is that the water backs up the drain pipe and then freezes before the water in the external tray can evaporate.

Did any of the repairmen replace the heater which is at fault or did all three of them change it? If it has not been changed then I would suggest that it should be. If it continues to be a problem then you can get drainline heaters added to the system but you would need to talk to a fridge guy before they wasted a journey. The other possibility is that the front cover is not inside the drain pan or a leak in the drain pan, and if you have an icemaker you could even get water coming from further up the cabinet. Either way I would suggest picking your favourite of the three and tell them that the problem is unresolved. Most fridge guys offer some sort of warranty on work that they do. Hope this is of some help.
