No you can use a hairdryer to melt it.

I want to defrost my GE chest freezer but i do not know where the drain is


Since you did not include a model number this is my best guesses:
http://manuals.appliancesonline.com.au/kcm2100wc/kcm2100wc.pdf (Page 1 w/pic)

and
http://www.appliancesdirect.com/InstallationPdf/49-60442.pdf (page 7 no pictures)

For Complete Defrosting

Turn the temperature control to the

OFF position and unplug the freezer.

Remove all food and place it in

corrugated boxes, insulated bags,

picnic coolers, etc. Use towels and

newspapers for insulation as needed.

With the door/lid open, use pans of

hot water to speed loosening of frost.

Remove large pieces before they melt.

Chest models have a defrost water drain

at the front.

NOTE: Water may drip from the back flange of

the lid cover during defrosting. This is normal.

Ice builds up in the lid insulation when the lid is

open for adding or removing food, and melts

during the defrosting operation.

Sponge excess water from the bottom

of the freezer as it collects to prevent

overflowing.

After defrosting, clean the inside of the

freezer (see Care and Cleaning).

Replace the drain plug inside the

cabinet and the cap on the defrost

drain. Fold over and dry the gasket

on the hinge side of the lid.

Plug in the freezer. Return the

temperature control to its previous

position and return food to the freezer.


Hopefully with this information you can find the drain. If not go to www.ge.com and click on service and support to download your manual. (Model number required)
or contact them here:

I have a Whirlpool Gold top-mount fridge (GR2SH/GR2SHM). It's about 6 years old. About a year ago the freezer started to have ice build up and water would over flow into the fridge. I defrost the...


The defrost cycle is not working. After a predetermined number of hours of compressor running time, a timer actuates the defrost cycle, which stops the compressor and turns on a heating element to melt the ice. Either the timer or heating element is not working. Also, make sure the melted ice water is actually draining and not re-freezing.

Your freezer goes to a defrosting cycle and actualy melts away some ice formation inside the freezer, normaly this melted ice (water) drains trough a tube in the back of the frig... the drain is probably clogged and the water spils out... to unclogg it you need to find the uper end of the drain (where the water drips in) usualy way in the back of the frigidaire, than try pushing a long wire in downwards to unclogg the drain, also check underneath or in the back of the frig. ther should be a back to hold the water for the time it evaporates, see if it is not full of water or dirt (dust) i even foud some pet toys in there once ha! ha!

Hope this helped!

The evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the back of the freezer.

Common problem with fridges. Suggest you get behind the fridge and somewhere on top of the compressor, there is a small pipe that normally sits in a pan of a sort. You need to blow hard into the pipe which will release the blockage in the system and that will clear the line. Water will then start draining again onto the compressor. That will stop the water build up in your fridge.

We have a Hotpoint refrigerator/frezzer. It intermittently makes fan noises and stops making ice. Where do we find someone who can service the unit?


I hope your microwave doesn't make ice !!!
Are you in the GTA (Greater Toronto Area). If not I can tell you what is happening.
All fridges have a timer so that the freezer goes thru a defrosting mode for about 3hrs
In that 3hrs there are hearter in the walls of the freezer to melt the ice.
As the ice melts , there is a drain from the back of your freezer down to the bottom of the fridge is a vaporator tray. The hose could be blocked and the water can't drain and after the defrost mode all that water changes to ice and it stops the fan
Take the time to make sure that hose is fre from abstruction
