You need to remove the back panel inside the freezer to properly defrost and clear the line. The drain is below the evaporator panel and you can use a steamer or turkey baster with hot water to clear the line out.
OK great let me know if you need anymore help and all I ask is please rate my service thanks
COuld you get the drain to drain water? If not you may need to go behind the unit and remove the rear panel see if there is a rubber end on the drain line to the pan. If so remove it and see if it is all full of crud blocking the unit from draining into the pan.
Was it frozen up and do you have an icemaker? An icemaker fill tube could be causing water to leak other than that the only thing would be the defrost drain itself. It would have to be all cleared out and the ice or frost cleared out of the return vents and there should be no more water leaking.
OK sounds great, please do not forget to rate my service thanks!
If the drain is clear the only other place water can come from would be the icemaker. Can you check that?
OK if that only worked for a week it is clogged again, Remove the back panel behind the unit by the compressor, find the drain tube where it enters the drain pan and see if there is a rubber piece attached to the end of it, if so clean that out really well and then defrost the line under the evaporator again. You can also install a solid copper 14 gauge wire about 2 foot down the line with it sticking out of the drain hole in the evaporator to keep it from freezing up...but that is really about it.
