Yeah I think removing the giant ice-ass should be a priority.

*snicker*

There just never seems to be the time to defrost the fecker! It always needs to be on to make a-da ice for da cocktails!

Can you still shut the door?

use a chisel!

(speaking from experience, when my mum offered me a week's rent free if i defrosted our freezer)

Really don't use a chisel (speaking from experience, when various people have tried to chip the ice out and broken the tubes that let all the chemicals out :) )

You could use a hair drier, but for that amount you're as well to turn it on it's front out the door and let it melt naturally...

Ladislav, Frost free freezers work this way:

and you definately get them in the UK :)

ok, scary... but i didn't find that. I hope. If you go carefully it should be ok...?

But a landlord will never buy one.

you're trying to reproduce some of Euphro's photos aren't you?
Sean is right, don't use a chisel! I did that once and almost died.

In every fridge book they say don't use chisels or anything metal - let it defrost naturally - if you're going to use something like that then use a plastic thing. Oooh, hark at me being all grown up :)

Helen says:

A wooden spatula or plastic spatula is good for leverage, once the ice areound the edges has melted.

Anyway nice ice front kiku.

I've never seen a sandwiched glacier before. Maybe Euphro can explain it.

seaneeboy says:

Well, i've been feeling a slight injustice at the shortness of this weekend, so think I'm taking it out on monday :)

Helen says:

Monday. Pah.

(I didn't just double post then. Oh no.)

ladislav says:

Ah, I see - they automatically defrost themselves every six hours.

I've always used serrated knives to get the worst of the ice out, myself. Probably not a great idea, but I'm sure it's less dangerous than using a chisel. OTOH, it's more effort.

:-D

Cheers for all the ace advice. My plan is to stuff the underside of the fridge with newspapers, turn the fecker off, then leave for the weekend and hope the solicitors downstairs have good insulation in their roof.

Or get flatmate to hack bits of ice off with a tool of some description...
