To maintain the efficiency of your integrated or freestanding freezer, it is a good idea to defrost your appliance regularly. Depending on the model you own, your appliance may do this automatically. However, you may need to defrost your freezer manually. We’ve put together this handy guide to help you defrost a freezer or fridge freezer.
Before defrosting your freezer, it is important to refer to your appliances manual for guidance. If you have misplaced your manual, don't worry you can download your appliance manual here.
How to defrost a fridge freezer: To defrost your fridge freezer, simply follow the above steps. Please note that it is always best to refer to your manual for guidance of how often this should be carried out, as each model may differ.
The importance of keeping your freezer clean and ice-free cannot be overstated. By defrosting your freezer you can free up more space for your groceries, whilst also ensuring that your freezer is running at maximum efficiency. Excessive ice acts as an insulator in a freezer, meaning your appliance needs to work harder to keep your food cold. As a result, the lifespan of your appliance may be reduced and your energy bills will increase.
We recommend defrosting your appliance twice a year or when a frost layer of around 7mm (1/4”) has formed. This will allow the appliance to function correctly and free up any space that the ice may be taking up.
