Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

Repairman removed the backing in freezer, exposing the coils, and also exposed what looked like paint that was peeling. He said that "painted" piece of refrigerator was flaking into the tube that was to drain defrosted water to pan in bottom of refrigerator and causing it to clog and leak into refrigerator. He said this part was not replaceable and that best solution was a new refrigerator. Refrigerator is only about 6 years old; is this the only solution?

The ice is leaking or overflowing from it's container so that the bottom of the refrigerator collects the ice and does not close until it's scraped out (with no damage to the fridge) except once it accumlates it starts to leak out onto the floor.
