I have a hussmann g6f-8u and can't stop the ice from forming. what should the defrost be set on?

Most all freezers are set at a defrost of every 6 hours (4 times a day) and for about 25 to 30 minutes. This is a good starting point.
Be sure that the system is working right. If you are icing up, you may have other issues.

Hope this helps.

Go to and it will take you to their web site. They have a 24 hour, ask a tech a question. I could not find any wiring diagram on your particular unit but maybe they can help you via their tech hot line.

Good luck and hope this helps.
