I have a Hotpoint Fridge Model CTX14EYXKRWH about 10 years old that works fine except when the overhead freezer goes into defrost then water drips into the fridge compartment beneath.  Is something clogged?  Thanks.

You have to take the duct and the bottom cover out of the freezer.Boil a pot of water.Pour some  hot water over the drain behind the foam duct.Keep doing it until the drain clears.I unclog about 2 to 4 of these drains a day.

Add a pinch of salt and stir, the salt will help defrost the ice quicker and then take a flexible tube and run it down the drain hose to clear all the gookus out. This drian might have also iced over due to a air leak, check those gaskets:cool:
