This is not a self defrosting freezer . Remove the plug and hose ONLY when you unplug to defrost . You should defrost when the coils get about 1/4 " of frost (ice) on them . Otherwise , the frost will act like the plastic insulation on electrical wire , not letting the coldness freeze the food solidly .

I lost my owners manual. How do I defrost my upright freezer


they can be defrosted by using a blow dryer on the evaporator coil.or most common way is to remove all the product in the freezer and turn the unit off and leave the door open. most units have a defrost heater and they self defrost but if you are building up frost then you may need to check the continuity on the heating element and replace if need to. or check and make sure the defrost timer is working properly

Maytag upright freezer with self defrost. The water line freezes.


This sounds like your defrost heating coil has gon bad. Not much you can do but replace it. Please leave a good thumbs up for me for the effort. Pretty sure I'm correct on this one. The Raz Shack

I have a maytag upright freezer. It is on the coldest setting. A bowl of water on the bottom shelf freezes overnight. The middle one is freezing, but not entirely. The top one is still water, but cold....


check to make sure door seals are touching the frame all round, could be an air leak,also make sure there is no ice build up around the inside casing. if so fully defrost unit,clean all vents/drain pipe, then turn back on and leave it for 24hrs (freezers work beast when full).....and door shut..how many times have you closed door after them????

How can you tell by looking if a freezer is a manual defrost or self-defrosting type? Thanks


If you have freon lines running through your shelving, this is a manual defrost. If you have an evaporator fan motor blowing air in your freezer compartment this is a self defrosting model. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

I have a maytag freezer does it self defrost?


If it has a fan in it, it's self defrosting. The moving air burns away the frost and 8 out of every 24 hours, the defrost timer will turn a heating element in the cooling coils, to melt away any ice buildup.
If it isn't a self defrost model, you can safely defrost it woth a pan of hot water. I also use a spray bottle woth hot water to help the process. DON'T use anything electrical to make the heat. Water can drip into or onto it and you could get electrocuted.

Freezer defrosted and the motor won't start back up.


From what I can gather, you have a self defrosting freezer and the "motor" you speak of is the fan inside the freezer. If this is correct, do this:
Unplug freezer. Unload all food into coolers or other freezer space. Leave freezer door open for a day to allow it to manually defrost. Plug freezer back in after minimum 24 hours and confirm fan running and cooling before loading back up with food.
