Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.
So this is a fairly common issue with this model--yes. There is a drain clip built after the fact which you can clip onto the heater and extend down into the drains to prevent the drains from freezing up causing too must moisture to build up. The part number for this clip is da61-06796a. It's a clip that wraps around the heater and extends down into the drain hole to transfer heat into the drain hole.
Other than that, if your silver coils are over frosting and the drain line isn't backing up, you need to replace your defrost sensors. The refrigerator sensors are clipped onto the silver coils inside the refrigerator section. The part number is ***** and DA32-00006N for the different parts. The sensors for the freezer that need to be replaced are DA32-00006N and DA47-00095E. Order those parts and replace them and that will fix the issues.

Yes, the sensors fail often and the copper wire is sort of a home remedy but it doesn't conduct the heat as well as the clip so I'd order and install the clip and the sensors and you'll be good to go.
No problem and good luck!
