After removing back plate you will see a drain line that comes down and has a rubber duckbill device on the end of it. This is to prevent warm air from entering the freezer but also allow water fro the auto defrosting cycle to drain out. This duckbill device gets sticky with time and will seal shut preventing the defrosted ice water from draining into the pan to evaporate away. You can take this duckbill off and clean it but I have always just replaced them. It may look different on yours.

You would be best off also changing The terminating thermostat and the heater. That will pretty much guarantee a fix.

Model no. returns no information.
Sounds like you have a defrost problem. Once symptoms show up, the failure probably occurred 1-2 weeks prior, resulting in frost accumulating in the freezer. Turning it off will allow it to manually defrost and will work ok for another 2-3 weeks.
There are 3 components that make up the defrost system.
1. Defrost timer
2.Defrost terminating thermostat
3.Defrost heater
You will have to replace all 3 components unless you can determine what's at fault

It sounds like the water has frozen at some point between the freezer and fresh food wall where the water line runs through insulation. www.repairclinic.com may have a schematic or diagram showing the routing of the water line.
