    Howdy, consider adding roofing heat tape into the down spout.
    Make sure the opening from the roof is open enough to allow ater to exit readily. Sometimes the oepnin gets caked with roofing tat. Is there any extension on the bottom of the rain gutter pipe that is allowing the water to freeze in it and back up the roof water? With out photos thats my best shot...
