This is a G.E. frig., soulds like the defrost drain is stopped up either in the freezer drain trough or in the drain line underneath.  Get your blow dryer to melt the ice then use hot salt water to see if you can clear the whole drain system.

OK -here's what we ended up doing..on the back of the frig, there's the "grommit drain" it was filled with gunk .The grommit drain allows the water to drain and then get evaporated in bottem of frig.(not inside bottom-but outside underneath) We took it off, cleaned it out...I'll keep this updated in a day or two to see if it solves the problem.

Also didn't know Kenmore was a G.E. product.

Kenmore is any brand,  Sears makes nothing, is made by others for Sears and the Kenmore name is slapped on it..A Kenmore frig could be a Whirlpool, G.E. Maytag, Frigidaire., L.G.   Your prefix  363 is the source code for G.E., if it was 106 would be Whirlpool, etc.  Sears makes nothing, never has and never will, that is why when you buy something with the Kenmore name on it unless you know the source code you have no clue what brand you are really buying.

I've got the same problem with a Kenmore Coldspot Model number 79172990.

I've located the evap tray, which was bone dry, but I can't locate the line that would drain into it.

Unlike the diagrams I've seen on the site, the evap tray is on the right of the fridge, not the left.

Can you help?

what we did by cleaning out the trap on the long drain tube on back of frig, worked. the tube run on outside of frig and had a "trap" that was clogged. we cleaned it out and things are moving along just fine.
