There are several reasons for the drain to freeze up and several repairs. Over time, slime will build up in the drain hose and create a nasty clog. Removing the ice and clog without replacing the drain hose doesn't always work. Defrost heater too far from drain opening. Sometimes the heater warps just enough during normal use that the drain won't get enough heat to keep it thawed. Adding a heat sink clip to the defrost heater with the other end in the drain will solve this issue as well as extending the defrost time. Choo3 suggested the repair kit. Excellent choice! For freezers on the bottom models that are leaking water, icing/frosting up etc., more information is needed to solve the problem.
