I wanted to separate this from my thread so it does not get lost. Anyone have any tips for me now that my IH is alive and working! It is a manual defrost and has a water container on the left side. When the freezer is frozen with ice just turn the thermostat off and let un thaw and allow for the water to run into the catch all? Leave the door open for this or keep it closed? Does the water catch all need emptied more than once during defrost? I just am looking for tips so that I am not learning as I go!
