Could be bad start/over load relay, or bad compressor. Try unplugging your frig for say 30 to 40 min then, with your hand on top of a cool compressor, plug the frig back in and see if compressor smoothly vibrates for at least 5 min without becoming very hot or shutting off even though fan continues to run. When the start/over load relay fails, it can apply power to both the compressors start coil AND it's run coil at the same time for to long and it very quickly causes and over load situation. I bet your "Starting Components" (start/over load relay) are bad. Any decent appliance parts store will have what you need. Just take in the make, model, and serial number of tour frig.

The problem when moisture and oxygen enters the sealed system, it breaks down the refrigerant into hydrochloric and hydrofluoric acids, which then in turn damage the mechanical components. You have a major problem, and I'll save you a house call charge by telling you that the entire sealed system has to be replaced. If you only have the system evacuated and dehydrated, then recharge the system, which even if its done properly and legally, by an EPA Certified Type I Technician, in other words, not recommended for a DIYer, due to the process required, would still be a major repair, and would not last as long as it should due to the acid damage.

That is called the drain pan. When the machine goes into defrost to clear the ice away form the evaporator coild, the water drains from the freezer into this pan where it then is evaporated from the condensor fan which draws heat from the copmpressor and blows it across the water.

The first thing you want to do is open the freezer and see if the fan inside there is running. The reason is the freezer cools the refrigerator side by circulating air from the freezer. If the fan is running then your problem is one or more parts of the defrost system is malfunctioned and in return your problem arises. There are three parts to the system, the defrost timer or in some cases control board, defrost thermostat also known as a bi-metal, and the defrost heater. The defrost system is set up to operate as so. The defrost timer or control board will turn the machine off, in some cases every 8 hours, some 12. During this time period the defrost heaters, located behind the freezer wall and rest underneath the evaporator, yet wires to them run up the side of it, are energized and emit heat that raises upward to melt the ice that has formed on the evaporator coils. The bi-metal or defrost thermostat is at the top of the evaporator. When the heat from the heater starts to reach the bi-metal, it breaks the circuit turning the heater off. The whole purpose of this is because the freezer cool the refridgerator side by drawing air across the coils and blowing to the other side via the evap fan motor. In my opinion, if you change one part of the defrost system change them all because usually when one part fails another will follow, so save yourself the time and the food loss, the cost difference is minute.
