I have the same issue Rego. Was the solution to replace the drain pan?

The customer decided not to bother with the repair because of the cost of the drain pan...they would rather throw down a towel every now and then.
 
I would go with what the other tech.'s have done to solve the problem and replace the pan.

Thanks.

I filled the drain pan with water after opening the panel at the rear of the fridge. The issue reproduced immediately.

The drain pan looks a bit difficult to remove.

Drain pan easy to change if (a) ..remove condenser fan blade (b) spray fan shroud rubber gasket with some silicone spray to make it slippery then work shroud out working it slightly back and forth .The key to getting it back in properly is take small wire cutters and modify the guides on the drip pan and matching areas on fan shroud so you can jam it all back together easily .
