Care and Cleaning
- To avoid frequent defrosting, occasionally use a plastic scraper to remove frost.
- Scrape with a pulling motion. Never use a metal instrument to remove frost.
- It is important to defrost and clean freezer when 1⁄4 to 1⁄2 inch of frost has accumulated. Frost may tend to accumulate faster on upper part of the freezer due to warm, moist air entering the freezer when the door is opened. Remove food and leave the door open when defrosting the freezer.
- On upright models with a defrost drain (Figure 1), remove drain plug on the inside floor of the freezer by pulling straight out. To access external drain tube on models with a base panel, first remove the two screws from the base panel.
- Locate the drain tube near the left center under the freezer. Place a shallow pan under the drain tube. Defrost water will drain out. Check pan occasionally so water does not overflow. A 1⁄2 inch garden hose adapter can be used to drain the freezer directly into a floor drain. If your model is not equipped with an adapter, one can be purchased at most hardware stores. Replace the drain plug when defrosting and cleaning are completed. If the drain is left open, warm air may enter freezer.
- On chest models with a defrost drain, place a shallow pan or the Divider/Drain
- Pan (some models) beneath the drain outlet (Figure 2). A 1⁄2 inch garden hose adapter can be used to drain the freezer directly into a floor drain (Figure 3). If your model is not equipped with an adapter, one can be purchased at most hardware stores. Pull out the drain plug inside the freezer, and pull off the outside defrost drain plug (Figure 4). Defrost water will drain out. Check pan occasionally so water does not overflow. Replace the drain plugs when defrosting is completed.
- On models without a defrost drain, place towels or newspapers on the freezer bottom to catch the frost. The frost will loosen and fall. Remove towels and/or newspapers.
- If the frost is soft, remove it by using a plastic scraper. If the frost is glazed and hard, fill deep pans with hot water and place them on the freezer bottom. Close the freezer door. Frost should soften in about 15 minutes. Repeat this procedure if necessary.
Cleaning the Inside
- After defrosting, wash inside surfaces of the freezer with a solution of two tablespoons of baking soda in one quart (1.136 litres) warm water. Rinse and dry.
- Wring excess water out of the sponge or cloth when cleaning in the area of the controls, or any electrical parts.
- Wash the removable parts with the baking soda solution mentioned above, or mild detergent and warm water. Rinse and dry. Never use metallic scouring pads, brushes, abrasive cleaners, or alkaline solutions on any surface. Do not wash removable parts in a dishwasher.
Cleaning the Outside
- Wash the cabinet with warm water and mild liquid detergent. Rinse well and wipe dry with a clean soft cloth. Replace parts and food.
