Check the fan, make sure it is spinning. Might also check for dust buildup in same area.

Do what I did to my friend when she said hers was blocked. I got the fridge out so the outside end of the drain tube was visible and I could get my mouth on the end, Wrapped kitchen roll round it so as not to mess my lips and said to my friend that she should look closely at the hole in the inside of the fridge AND GET AS CLOSE AS POSSIBLE to it so she could tell me exactly what was going on.

So with her head up to the hole I blew as hard as I could. You can guess what happened... She swore a bit, but she has a good sense of humour and laughed, but she couldn't complain as her fridge drain was clear.

It's a tube - you don't need to undo anything...

Sounds like a earth fault. Check light socket for any moisture and if any then dry.

This would not work as the coils will start to ice up. Best way is to turn off and let ice melt, can use hair dryer to speed this up but DO NOT use and mechanical means (scrapers etc) to remove ice as you may puncture evaporator coils.

Possible reverse cycle solenoid on gas line. You can gently tap this as it may be sticking, elsewise the solenoid coil may be faulty or no power getting to solenoid.

Is this a 3 way fridge. ie does it have a 12volt connection. If it is the following information may be helpful.:
The 12 volt heater should only operate when car engine running as the current draw (approx. 17amps) will quickly drain batteries. Also if fridge is set up to run on 12volt then the 12 volt heater element is possibly faulty and a replacement is needed

Is there a fan in the refrigerator which draws cold air from freezer. If so is fan working, if fan not working may be faulty fan or thermostat. May also be blocked duct from freezer to refrigerator, only there if fan is used as above.

The alarm operates from the door switch which also turns light on. When refrigerator door is open for a set period the alarm sounds, fault is possibly either door switch or alarm panel. Can you operate door switch manually while door is open to see if light goes out? If light stays on then you have a faulty switch.

Most ice makers in domestic refrigerators make a noise when filling ice containers and when "dropping" ice cubes into ice container. If working OK then this is possibly the noise as described above.

If new and under warranty contact supplier. If you attempt to fix while under warranty and cause further faults then you may void warranty.

Most large hardware stores carry white goods repair paint or porcelain repair paint and these are effective in repairing chips or large scratches on white goods.

How did you remove ice from freezer. If you uses any type of tool (Scraper etc) then you have possibly punctured the evaporator tubes. These tubes can be either as a radiator type or form part of the freezer box and are very thin therefore susceptible to puncturing when using scrapers or such to remove ice.
To remove ice from refrigerator condensers allow it to melt, you can use a hair dryer to speed this up but DO NOT use mechanical means.

Possibly blocked drain from evaporator. When fridge goes into reverse cycle ice melts on evaporator and drains to a dish on the motor housing, this evaporates when motor runs. May have a crack in this dish or drain pipe has a hole or not draining into dish.
