Need Appliance Repair Help? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello and welcome to just answer my name is ***** ***** I will be the one to assist you. Give me just a moment to pull up some information on your unit and i will be right with you.
As part of the refrigerator's defrost cycle, the defrost drain tube transfers condensate from the evaporator drip tray that's under the evaporator to the drain pan in the machine compartment next to the compressor, where the water evaporates. If the evaporator drip tray or top of the drain tube freezes, the condensate water can overflow into the freezer or the refrigerator compartment. This repair involves thawing that drain area so that the condensate properly flows through the defrost drain tube and into the drain pan next to the compressor.
It should be a pretty good sized tube
oh that makes a world of difference I am not familiar with this model so I will open this up to other experts.

In the diagram at the link below, number 6577 is the evaporator cover that will need to be removed to access the drain for thawing and cleaning.
At the bottom of number 5005 drip tray is the drain hose you will need to clear. Use nothing sharp to thaw or clear that line, only hot water!
