Hi Guys, I have a Samsung RB1855SW fridge top, freezer bottom. The fridge drain hole is frozen. I have thawed it once before with a lot of effort end heat and made sure water drains through drain pipe down to the drain pan near the compressor. Because the hole freezes and doesn't defrost on its own, when it goes through a defrost cycle it ends up leaking into the bottom of the fridge area under the draws or sometimes into the draws because the thawed water has no where to go. I have been manually removing the water out of the fridge be very couple days. How can I make the hole not freeze? Potentially if someone can help me identify the heater for defrost, I can run a copper wire from that into the drain hole to keep it warm? When I removed the back cover to be able to see the evaporator coil /drain hole area, I saw ice building up on the bottom of that as well where the Styrofoam is. Wondering if I need to insulate something to prevent that area from getting cold somehow..
