NOTE: The tasks and timings shown here for your Freezer (stand-alone) are based on a single-family home (owned), located in Massachusetts, United States, with priority set at ‘1 star' or higher, for all possible goals.
If you set your personalization differently in your Home Wizard app, then you may get reminders for different tasks and timings in your recommended home care program for your Freezer (stand-alone).
Annual freezer maintenance includes the following tasks:
Defrosting the freezer: Turn the freezer off. Remove food, and store in an insulated ice chest, refrigerator, or boxes insulated with newspapers or blankets. Use a fan to help melt the frost. Use a wooden or plastic scraper, never a sharp object. Wash the inside of the unit with a warm water solution of mild detergent or baking soda. Wipe until very dry. Turn freezer back on and put food back in.
Vacuum dust off the condenser coils.
Ensure that the magnetic door seal on the unit closes tightly.
