Thank you for your question.

I can understand not wanting all that defrost water ending up in the bottom of the refrigerator.

I am not sure if it is frozen but it is more likely that it is plugged with sludge from all these years of defrosting.

If you open the refrigerator door and look at the back center ceiling of the refrigerator there should be a cup and the defrost water drains into and a hose from the back side that attaches to it.

What I would suggest is to pull the refrigerator out from the wall and locate the drain hose that ends up down by the top of the compressor where it drains into the evaporator pan on the top of the compressor.

If you take a turkey baster with warm water and put it in the end of the drain hose and pinch to seal around the baster and then squeeze the bulb quickly you should be able to back flush the hose and it will end up on the inside of the refrigerator.

You may want to remove or cover the food so it won't get stuff sprayed all over it.

If the drain is frozen you will need to open up the freezer and remove the food and then remove the back panel to defrost the drain trough under the evaporator.

I hope this will help.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.
