How do I clean a Defrost Drain Tube that is dirty in a Side-By-Side Refrigerator?

In the machine compartment next to the compressor, the drain tube is used to transfer the water from the evaporator tray to the drain pan. If the top of the drain tube is frozen, the water can overflow into the freezer. The defrost drain tube and the drain pan need to be thawed so that the condensate can flow through them and into the compressor.
