Hello,
There is a simple way to make sure that the drain hole stays open. First defrost everything and then find a copper or alum. wire and wrap it around the heat coil. Make sure the fridge is unplugged when you do this. Let the end of the wire extend down the hole of the drain tube. This will transfer heat into the hole and keep it open so that your water drains when the defrost happens.
I also wrote a tip that gives the details of this procedure...you can see it here..

I have a Kenmore refrigerator with the bottom freezer. I just finished defrosting it and it keeps leaking water from the freezer portion of the refrigerator. I figured that I did not give it enough time to thaw completely so I redid it and left it unplugged for 12 hours. There was no water leaking from it at the time but as soon as I start it up again the water leaks from the bottom again as usual.

I have a Whirlpool bottom freezer refrigerator...GB2FHDXWS04. Water is leaking from somewhere and forming a layer of ice on the floor of the freezer. I shut off the water supply to the ice maker in the freezer, but water is still leaking from somewhere and forming the ice layer on the freezer floor.

Ice is forming on the bottom of the freezer side of my MAYTAG MZD2766GE SIDE BY SIDE and water is leaking out of the bottom onto the floor.

Fridge and freezer are working just fine. But, I keep getting pools of water inside my fridge. These pools stay to the back of the fridge on all levels and they sometimes turn to ice. I notice ice layer on the freezer bottom too. We turned off the ice maker water valve thinking this was the problem, but pools kept coming. I notice a little drain behind the bottom drawer but can't see how the water would get there as the drawer is in the way.

I have what appears to be a water leak of some kind in the freezer section near the ice making part of the freezer. You can tell because the freezer is building up ICE all around the bottom of the ICE crusher. When you open the Freezer you see a large ICE build-up right at the bottom of the ICE holder where the grinding mechanism is located. Everything else works fine, is there any suggestions on how to fix this problem?

Frigidaire FRS20ZRG Water is leaking from the internal lower vent area every 2-3 days. This in turn collects in the bottom of the freezer below the basket and freezes. Subsequent water than leaks over the ice, under the door & onto the floor. In an effort to correct the situation I turned off the water supply which did not help. I also turned the freezer section off for several hours to hopefully eliminate any ice buildup, but again no success.

Ice was building up in the lower freezer and water was running down on top of the ice and out of the freezer and on to the floor. I assumed it was a plugged drain not allowing the water to go out and then causing it to refreeze. I cleaned the drain tube, but now, a few days later, I see ice building up again. It is not leaking, but I think in time it will. What else can I check. Is it possible that the freezer is somehow keeping itself too cool and freezing the water (from the defrost cycle) bef

When the freezer defrosts it partially melts the ice cubes, the ice builds up between the inside back and the outside back. This ice gets hit by the fan making an awful grinding noise water leaks out of the bottom of freezer onto the floor. and the bottom of the inside of the freezer fills up with ice. This happens at least once a week and we have to take it all apart and clean out all the ice and start over,and hope we are home to hear it grinding the next time and shut it off. It is only 1 yr

The side by side freezer compartment water keeps freezing up in the bottom of the freezer - i took the back panel off and tried to melt the ice which has been accumulating and thus causing the water which would normally drain to freeze up. within a day it was back to the same problem - dont want to have to pay another $150 for a repairman. Also in the refrige door - the bottom shelf panel which holds items in, keeps breaking - i have already ordered two replacements - any other ideas?
