Thank willie for helping with one: "Well, it looks like the pan is a seperate plastic pan and not the compressor mounting pan like some of the newer ones are. It appears that you have to remove the condensor fan motor and mounting bracket then maybe the pan will left up and over the compressor, or maybe there is enough room to lift the pan up and out the front over the condensor coils"

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?

THERE IS A DRAIN LINE HEATER ON MOST UNITS now days, if yours is an older one what you need to do is make sure that it's level, and that the drain line is cleared so that the water has a place to go when it thaws during the defrost cycle.

The accumulated ice you saw is of course the source of the water. The refrigerator will eventually rid itself of the excess ice and the problem will therefore disappear on it's own after a while. The drip pan is normally filled with only a small amount of water, and that is dried up by the condenser cooling fan under the fridge. The pan is removable from most units, but not without making a mess. I suppose you can make and clean up the mess one time and be done with it.
