NO FROST MODELS
No-Frost means that you will never have
to defrost your Freezer. Frost is removed by
air moving and collecting any moisture and
depositing it on the cooling coil. The cooling
coil periodically warms up just enough to
melt the frost and it then flows down to the
drain pan {located behind the base grille)
where it is evaporated.

Most power failures are corrected in an
hour or two and will not affect your freezer
temperatures. However, you should minimize the number of door openings while
the power is off.
During power failures of longer duretion,
take steps to protect your frozen food by
placing blocks of dry ice on top of the
packages. If dry ice is not available, see if
you can temporarily use a freezer in your
