If 106 is correct you turn off the refrigerator.
Remove the freezer bins and shelves.
Remove the back panel in the freezer covering the evaporator coil.
Look in the bottom rear of the freezer at the ice slab .
Break this ice slab and remove it.
Use your hair dryer to melt the remaining ice inside the drain opening.
Once the ice blockage is clear,por 1/2 cup bleach into the hole.
Re-assemble the refrigerator.
Turn it back on.

Easy peazy check: move the fridge out, take off the back panel, find the yucky looking pan near either the compressor or the condenser fan. You should have some water in that pan. If it's totally dry, take a flashlight and check it from both the front and the back, as that's a good sign of a cracked pan.
What is the simplest, dumbest explanation? Because that's the most probable one.

Or you could look under the lower basket in the freezer to see if you have a ice block under the basket that would indicate the drain hole is frozen over.
