How To Defrost Your Freezer: 4 Simple Steps (with Pictures)

Step 1

Set a day in mind to defrost your fridge-freezer or chest freezer. Preparing an icebox and large foam boxes to store your meat cuts and other goods is best. Otherwise, leave your sink empty to place them there. Once you have a storage solution, the next step for defrosting is to remove all of your freezer items beforehand. 

Step 2


Once you have emptied your freezer, switch off the main electric power of your fridge-freezer and leave the doors fully open. By doing so, you are allowing the ice and frost to melt away at room temperature. A spare towel is always good for wiping out any water spills.

Step 3


Find the inner drain cover in your chest freezer or fridge. Once detected, remove the inner drain cover by turning it counterclockwise. Then remove the outer drain stick by turning it also counterclockwise. By removing both the inner drain cover and the outer drain stick, you are allowing the water to be drained out.

Step 4


Wipe dry the external and internal of your fridge and freezer with a clean towel. Install back the inner drain cover and outer drain stick by turning it clockwise. Once completed, switch the power back on and allow your fridge and freezer to cool comfortably before placing your food items back inside!

Frequently Asked Questions

To maintain the efficiency of your fridge and freezer, it is highly recommended to unplug and vacuum the coils once every six months. When the coils surround dust and dirt, it can affect air circulation. The lifespan of your freezer and fridge can be cut short and may spike in the appliance’s energy use.

One major sign you can look out for as to whether your chest freezer and fridge require maintenance service is when the temperature is cold to a point, the door sticks or ice forms on the wall of your freezer. It would need you to chisel the ice off. Unplugging your freezer or fridge can defrost and resolve this freezing issue.

Based on our fridge servicing experience in Singapore with various brands, defrosting your chest freezer once every 6 to 12 months can increase efficiency. It’s important to note the frost buildup and whether it exceeds 1/4 inches thick. When you often open your chest freezer, ice formation is likely to happen. So regular defrosting is required.

The average life expectancy of a fridge-freezer or chest freezer varies; for most, it is 16 years. However, freezers typically could function for as long as 20 years, but that’s not a guarantee, and this depends on various factors, including care and maintenance and environmental factors. Your manufacturer will be able to provide you with a more precise estimate. Among all kitchen appliances, your freezer and its gas and electric range are the most longer-lasting home equipment.

Simple answer, yes. We shared more extensively the importance of fridge servicing, but a good rule of thumb to bear in mind is the cost of repairing your fridge. Today, the cost of repairing is often less than half the price of a brand-new fridge. Hence, spending on fridge servicing and repairs is much more worth it.

You may want to consider replacing your refrigerator after 10 years. There are signs you can look out for, and that is whether your fridge is not energy-efficient as it used to be. Opt for replacing your fridge before it stops working completely.

Most chest freezers can last long. However, you can lose out on a few good years without the proper chest freezer care and maintenance. It is highly recommended to replace your chest freezer after 8 years of use to avoid forking more on fridge-freezer repair and maintenance services.
