I have had this problem for a year now and did the scraping by pouring warm water and pulling out the big sheet. I got so sick of always having water dripping out of the freezer. Luckily I have tile floors or I would have had to take action quicker. I found this YouTube video of an appliance repair man walking through the steps of what to do. In his video he takes the grommet(filled with gunk) and replaces it with a bigger one. I purchased a P-trap line off Amazon and will be installing that instead. It prevents the warm air from getting in and will not be able to stop it up. It appears that is the fix these companies came up with but did not feel that it was a defect and needed to be given to everyone. It was super easy to take all the parts out and my freezer will be completely ice free-hopefully! I am waiting on the part to be delivered and will let you know after the installation how it went.

UPDATE: I was able to install the P-Trap fairly easily. The most difficult part was getting the old pipe under the duck bill out, it was so dry it was stuck in good. Sure enough the duckbill had just a little bit of gunked up hair/dust in it, but that sucker hasn't opened in a long time. As soon as I took it off, water came down and began filling the basin, as I had melted it hoping to see it come down with the duck bill. After installing the new one, I sent more water down there and heard it sucking the water through the pipe like a kitchen sink. So far so good, nothing has built up anywhere in the freezer and the pipe is still clear at the back.
