I am all too familiar with this.
The way I handle this is fist to be sure the freezer isn't frosting heavily on the rear wall, please let me know if it is?
Next you will need a piece of semi stiff stranded wire to snake through the tube from the top behind the freezers rear wall.
You need to snake it all the way to the bottom because that's where the problem is occurring.

The problem still exists, the drain tube, water tray under the freezer bars are still icing up, I mean solid, I have to pour hot water on to clear it. Could the de-frost heater be at fault? the bars have ice on them too, but not much,
It could be a defrost issue?
Especially since you ran the water and cleared the tube all the way down and this happened so quickly again.
Do you have a meter?
yes I do have a meter
Please remove the wiring plugs from the defrost heater element. and set the meter to ohms, then attach the probes on the meter to each end of the hearers connections. and please let me know the reading you get?
