How do I clear a clogged drain tube for a Kenmore Elite refrigerator model 795.75196401?

The refrigerator is leaking from the bottom right corner of the freezer drawer. I suspect the cause is a clogged drain tube, but I am not sure how to access it. Any ideas?

A clogged defrost drain tube is not necessarily the cause for water collecting in the bottom right corner of the freezer. You did not mention any other problems with the refrigerator or the freezer. I recommend that you have a service technician diagnose and repair this problem in your refrigerator.

Accessing the evaporator in this type of refrigerator is not easy. If you still want to access evaporator and the drain area underneath it, you would need to

unplug the refrigerator

, remove the ice maker, the freezer drawer, the rails and then remove the back grill as shown in the image below.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website:
