yes its better to because it doesnt stay in defrost long enough to defrost it when its frozen completly. best to take back off freezer section and use hair dryer . hope this helps Bryan

Id get some towels, shouldn't take you longer than half an hour to defrost but there will be alot of water. I usually place towel under coils and when it gets soaked put another in. thanks Bryan feeback is appreciated.
