Warm air from a room and cool air from the freezer interchanging creates frost. Therefore the frequency in which the freezer will require to be defrosted depends on how often the door of the freezer is opened. Generally defrosting is required when the frost has become 1/4 of an inch in thickness. This will allow for continued optimal performance from your freezer.

To defrost the freezer:

  1. Remove all the food from the unit.

  2. Set the thermostat to Off or unplug the unit. 

  3. Place a shallow pan under the drain plug. 

  4. Remove the drain plug and open the lid. 

  5. Allow all the frost build up to melt and remove any excess moisture wiping down the interior with a towel. 

  6. Reinstall the drain plug, plug in the unit and set the thermostat to the middle position.


Caution: Never use a sharp or metallic instrument to remove the frost, as it may damage the cooling coils.
