Viking VCFF236SS - Freezer Frost Buildup

mig1980January 4, 2014

Good day everyone. My wife and I got home today and when we opened the bottom freezer we notice quite a bit of frost on a portion of the freezer.

After some diagnosis I found that the freezer door hadn't been closed properly.

My question is, the fridge has frost free setup with adaptive defrost. Will I have to perform a cleanup of the frost or will it take care if itself? If I do have to clean the frost, what is the best method if doing this?

Thank you

The defroster is supposed to melt the frost from the evaporator. Maybe there will be enough heat to dissapate the frost.

You can turn the unit off, put in a pan of hot water, and melt the frost, or you may be able to use a hair dryer.

Thank you. I ended up unplugging the unit and cleaning out the frost with a damp rang. It worked well and all is good now.
