Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. First I’ll need some more info so I have a more complete picture of your situation.

You don't have to take anythng apart. The drain is usualy 3/4 PVC the refrigeration lines are copper and smaller. Once you located the drain let me know and I'll tell you how to unclog it. You'll need a saw and a wet vac. If you can't locate the drain then give me a pic of you're unit showing the piping.
