from power source when defrosting
unit.
It is important to defrost and clean the freezer when rA to
r/2inch of frost has accumulated. Frost may tend to accu-
mulate faster on the upper part of the freezer due to warm,
moist air entering the freezer when the door is opened.
Remove food and leave the door open when defrosting the
freezer.
To Defrost Upright Models with Defrost Drain:
Remove the drain plug on the inside floor of the freezer by
pulling it straight out.
To access external drain tube on models with a base panel,
first remove the two screws from the base panel. Locate
the drain tube near the left center under the freezer.
Place a shallow pan under the drain tube. Defrost water
will drain out. Check the pan occasionally so water does
not overflow (see figure 1 ).
A r/2 inch garden hose adapter can be used to drain the
freezer directlyinto a floor drain. If your model isnot equipped
with an adapter, one can be purchased at most hardware
stores.
Replace the drain plug when defrosting and cleaning are
completed. If the drain is left open, warm air may enter the
freezer.
To Defrost Chest Models with Defrost Drain:
Place a shallow pan or the Divider/Drain Pan (if equipped)
beneath the drain outlet. Pull out the outside drain plug
(see figure 2). A r/2inch garden hose adapter can be used
to drain the freezer directly into a floor drain (see figure 3).
If your model is not equipped with an adapter, one can be
purchased at most hardware stores.
