The symptom you described is a very uncommon complaint. The overflowing defrost drain pan could be caused from your icemaker if it has one. Since you did not indicate what the model number of your refrigerator is I'm going to assume this is a top mount freezer. You did not mention anything about the icemaker production level. The excessive accumulation of water can also be an indication of an air leak around one of the door seals. Any air leak can cause the evaporator to accumulate more than normal ice and when it goes into defrost more than the normal amount of water collects in the drain pan.

Check the door seals and check to see if water is leaking past the icemaker and running behind the rear panel in the freezer.

I recommend resubmitting your question with the model number of the refrigerator for more specific information.

I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your refrigerator.
