Approximately 1 - 2 hours.
Yes. The frost was on the rear inside wall of the freezer.
I could go out and buy one, but it would take me about 15 minutes. Is there anything I could try to reset the machine?
Thank you. I will go and get the volt meter. In the meantime will unplug the unit, then plug it back in in 15 minutes.
Just unplugged it for 5 minutes, then plugged it in again. Now works fine! Thank you very much.
Is that easy to do? How would I do it?
Just on the rear wall.
Did you remove the rear wall to defrost the coils behind it? Or did you have it off for several hours to let it melt out?
It was off for about 3 hours total. I do not have the skill set to remove the rear wall. Also, 9:15 pm here, so I think I will accept that the machine is now working.
Thanks for your help.
