Is there a heater or something to stop the freezer drain from freezing up and overflowing? The evaporator defrost function is working properly.

I don't know of a factory drain heater, but I've used the aluminum drain probe from the Samsung leakage kit DA82-01415A . 

This unit also is subject to the P-Trap bulletin W10632338B , which can cause frozen defrost drains from guk glueing the original duckbill shut , calls for replacing the duckbill with P-Trap W10619951

Yes to this...

 

Someone on here turned me on to aluminum fence ties for drain probes. Easy  to bend, shape and cut to size. Cheap.

I keep a couple of the Samsung drain heaters on the truck.

I keep a bag of the fence ties in my steamer bag. I have used them on the units that the above doesn't work on. 

As stated above this particular unit most likely needs the P-Trap update.
