This is a quick guide on how to manually defrost a Galanz mini fridge.
How to Defrost a Galanz Mini Fridge
To defrost a Galanz mini fridge, do the following:
1. Empty the Mini Fridge
Take out every food item in the fridge. It is important to reduce the temperature of the fridge to the coldest, prior to defrosting. This is to make the food items very cold or frozen. Consequently, the food will not thaw easily.
2. Turn the Fridge Off
Turn off the fridge by unplugging it from the wall socket it is plugged to or shutting the circuit breaker off. It is important you do this any time you want to defrost your fridge or perform any other repair.
3. Open the Doors
Leave the doors of the fridge open for some hours. Better still, leave them open overnight. Leaving them open overnight will guarantee that all the ice thoroughly defrosts.
4. Clean the Moisture
In the morning, be sure to clean the fridge to remove any leftover moisture. Use only mild soap and water. Doing this will remove any stain from the wall, racks and shelves. Then, leave the fridge to get dry completely.
5. Turn the Fridge On
Plug the fridge back in again or turn on the circuit breaker. Set the temperature to cold so that the fridge can cool fast. Allow it to get cold before you return all the food items you removed earlier.
Most mini fridges require a manual defrosting process. So you will need to do this once every 6 months to avoid a serious frost buildup.
