Good day,
The aerosols help. But, hurry up with any type of refrigeration equipment is many times a quick way to disaster.
Go slow and thorough. A little lost food is far better than a messed up machine.
Patience is your friend here.

Locate your freezer's drain plugs (both interior and exterior), and pull them out. If the exterior drain is threaded, attach a garden hose, and divert the water to a large bucket, a floor drain or the outdoors. If it isn't, set up a bunch of old towels on the floor to absorb the water as the ice melts.- Internet research and experience.

How do I defrost a HFZE54W


Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.
Most refrigerators have a defrost timer and a defrost heater, therefore the term; "Frost Free". The defrost timer turns on the defrost heater every 8-10 hours, for about 10-20 minutes and defrost the freezer evaporator coil.
Of course you do not have this feature.
You will need a hair dryer, a plastic spatula and some old towels.
Take your time. Using the hair dryer melt the ice. As the ice starts to melt use the spatula to remove the ice in chunks.
Be very careful not to use a hammer or any metal tool. You may damage the freezer liner. If that happens, moisture will get into the freezer insulation, the moisture will freezer and expand and continue to crack the liner.
You have purchased a nice reliable unit.

RFA52 upright fridge freezer keeps frosting up.what is the 'normal' setting for the freezer 0 or 1?


Setting should be midrange. If the freezer is frosting on the back panel you have a defrost problem. The coils will be iced over and the unit will slow down on it's cooling. If there is frost you will need to deice the coils by removing the frezzer back wall panel and use a hair dryer to melt all of the ice. The problem causer of all this will be either the defrost timer, defrost t-stat or defrost heater. Good luck.

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 is on and just stopped working


you might have a defrost problem. Frost free models have a heating element that is controlled by a timer to automatically defrost ice, defrost timer turns on defrost heating element every 12 hours to melt ice in freezer and allow good air flow.
You can test defrost element with an ohm meter(located inside freezer coils-will have two wires going to a plug connection), if OK replace defrost timer (located in various places depending on make and model

After you taken the back panel off and see a lot of ice forming on the coil before you use your hairdryer you should locate the timer and turn the center of the timer manually into defrost cycle. If you can see or hear the ice melting then your problem is the timer defective. Change the timer and that is all. But if it doesn't do anything then you will need a little bit more on electrical knowledge to deal with the rest on defrost temperature control and the element itself. Hope this help, God Bless.

Hi,

I was made aware of your concern and would like to offer a few ideas you may want to consider. Water dripping down is not a leak during defrost condition as this would be the ice melting. Normally, there would be a drain hose specifically to channel the melted ice/water to a drainage system. The amount of water would then be proportional to the amount of ice melting as with the length of time to completely melt, drain away.

Perhaps you could check the filter/drain screen as well as the drain opening for any blockage/clogging. You could also try checking the same on the drain hose as well as for possible kinks. Additionally, there would be a sensor behind a boxy cover that triggers the system back into operation. If there is still melted ice/water inside the freezer, then the sensor would prevent the unit from turning on completely. You may want to check this sensor and verify that it is dry.

An exploded parts diagram would help you identify/locate the above mentioned parts.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.
