We have tried a hair dryer to try to loosen the ice and it has loosened up a bit but the ice container still won't come out.
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 2 years ago

I used a steamer and it took forever and then there was a large chunk still under it can you let it totally defrost?

Thanks but we can't do that. We have guests coming.
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 2 years ago

OK have how long did you defrost it for with the hairdryer? It will take awhile as the ice gets to be a large ball under it and takes awhile to defrost.
