How to get rid of the frozen ice from my Refrigerator?
My fridge often freezes too excessively and the freezer gets jammed with ice completely. It is full of too much tight jammed ice and I am unable to dig it out. We don't keep anything in that compartment since years as we do not use ice or eat ice cream. Now, the problem is that at times, the ice melts and the melted water fills up the path from hall to the kitchen. Does anybody of you also experience such problems? Tips, if any, please.
Try defrosting your freezer: turn off the power, and remove your food. Leave the door open. When the ice gets a little melted, it's much easier to remove all of it. Wipe down your freezer, turn the power back on, and put your food back in.
What type of refrigerator do you have? If it is a frost free, it could be that the drain line is clogged and not allowing the heater to evaporate the defrosted water. We have a Samsung double door with the freezer at the bottom and it was so frozen with ice, we could barely open the drawer. That after many hours of trouble shooting that is what the problem was. I went to YouTube and found the exact model of our refrigerator and it had instructions as to how to remove the bottom drawer. It cost nothing to fix it. I cleaned the clogged drain tube filter and it has been running great ever since. Also I used a boiling hot water in a turkey baster to remove the caked on ice.
Mine is Electrolux Oxiplus 230 LTR. single door, semi-automatic defrost system. My freezer drawer is also jammed. If I should power-off one full day to get the ice melted and open the door, the melted ice water will fill up the floor and needs wiper

How often do you clean out your refrigerator?Since today (Nov 15th) is National Clean out your Refrigerator day I was wondering how often people clean theirs. Do you do it often or when it absolutely has science projects growing from lack of cleaning?
