Hello- I found water on the floor below the refrigerator. Traced it to the area below the drawer and crispers, above the freezer. There was ~inch of solid ice with water leaking all around. Cleaned it up, checked the evaporator (correct name?) drain and it did not seem to be plugged. There is new water every day. Should I unplug the refrigerator for 24 hours to make sure the drain hose is not frozen or is it a bigger problem. Thank you

Here's the parts diagram for the refrigerator evaporator coil and defrost drain pan:
#22 is the refrigerator evaporator coil
#19 is the defrost drip pan that has a drain hole in the bottom of it that should drain the water to your main drip pan underneath the refrigerator
