Hi, this is gil1714 in Scotland. how to defrost freezer cda cw186.
lost instructions? try getting the user manual online and print it.
just enter the make and model on google and choose best info. in
the meantime extract contents and wrap in blankets/duvets to keep cold. open door and push defrost button or switch unit off at mains plug. use appropriate containers and towels to catch melt water .
you may use a hairdryer or fan heater to speed this process but don't get them too close to the plastic bits. if using the defrost button it should auto-reset, if it switches back on too soon, switch off at mains. leave for half hour after defrosting, switch back on and restock. Hope this is helpful . gil

Fridge freezer warm 2touch on outside and water lying in bottom of fride

1. Defrost timer failed, check to see if it is running at all over a half hour. If not, look into the defrost timer. This also drives a heater around the door.

2. Door not closing fully.

How do you activate the flash defrost function on a Kenmore 16082 model? I can't find any flash defrost button.


Not all these models were fitted with a flash defrost plunger, if fitted it is inside the lid on the left hand side.
You will need to remove all the product from the freezer and store it elsewhere.
1. Pull out the flash defrost button
2. Put a chock of wood or similar to prevent the lid from closing (if the lid closes it will stop the flash defrost)
3. Wait until all the ice has melted then clean out the casing, some of these models have a drain plug in the base, (put a shallow tray under the outlet to catch the water) others you will need to mop out the water.
4. Push in the flash defrost button and wait for a couple of hours and then you can reload the freezer.

If there is no flash defrost button then follow the above instructions after you have emptied the freezer, all you need to do is switch off and unplug the freezer then go to 2. above. When finished plug back in and reload.

Have lost instruction booklet and do not know how to defrost.

Easiest solution is to get an ice chest and put all your frozen items in it and turn the unit off or unplug it and leave the door open and let it defrost itself. If you really want to speed it along use a hair dryer to speed up the process. Or put a circulating fan in front of it and put it on high facing the inside of the freezer.
Remember folks KISS, "Keep it simple stupid"
And No I'm not saying anyone is stupid.

I do not know how to defrost my freezer Model MQU165BEW

There are no buttons to defrost your freezer except the off button. The unit is a self defrost. If it is freezing up then one of the defrost components have malfunctioned.
