Hi ya,
Number 13 is the ADC board. It is loacted in the beer section on the rear top right corner.  Look for a few screws to remove, then the plastic housing assembly must come down.  That comes down by placing a finger above the left rear, and one above on the right rear.  Then pulling down and forward at the same time carefully not to break the tabs that you are sliding it from.

I think you have a blocked defrost drain.  The slab of ice on floor of freezer is from the defrost working and melting the water and making a glacier because the water can no longer go down the drain tube into drain pan under refrig.  Every time it goes into defrost fresh water is flowed over the glacier and out front of freezer door and drips down between kickplate then out onto floor making it look like it's leaking from under the freezer area somewhere.

This glacier could very well be built up high enough to block the air return vents at the bottom.

When you say the evaporator is freezing, do you have lots, (all fins plugged with crystal ice), or just a nice thin frost over all coils except at bottom the clear glacier ice?

When you say thick ice, (do you mean clear and solid?) or (frosty?).
How about some pictures, that would tell us a lot.

You need to melt all the ice and make sure the drain is clear all the way to the pan under the refrig, (make sure all air passages are free of any ice before turning back on).

If you have solid ice, you don't have a defrost problem.  The evaporator is defrosting ok but water has no where to go so it makes the glacier and eventually plugs off air return ducts.
