How to Defrost a Haier Refrigerator

To defrost your Haier refrigerator, do the following:

Step 1: Take out all the food and other products in the unit. Then, remove all the shelves and every other moveable part in it. Unplug the refrigerator.

Step 2: Press the defrost button. It is on the temperature control inside the refrigerator. Be sure to place the drip tray under the freezer section in order to collect water during the process. The defrosting process will take a few hours, depending on the ice buildup.

Step 3: Keep an eye on the drip tray because water is likely to fill it quickly. Empty it as needed so it doesn’t spill over.

Step 4: When the ice has completely melted, empty the drip tray and clean the interior of the refrigerator. Put back all the shelves and parts you removed earlier.

Step 5: Turn on the refrigerator, set the temperature and return the food into the refrigerator.


What to Do If the Defrost Button on a Haier Refrigerator Is Stuck

If the defrost button on your unit is stuck, try and pull it out with pliers or any other pointed object. Don’t pull too hard or you could damage it completely.

You can also wait for it to thaw if the button is frozen or you thaw it yourself with warm water.

However, if the button is stuck and none of the above is applicable to it, then it could be broken and needs to be replaced.
