I finally got to it. Used two pots of hot water and ran a blow dryer for about 15 minutes. It was all said and done in under an hour. Thanks for the tips!

I'm glad that worked for you, dan. My freezer has a drain in the bottom. I attached a clear plastic hose to it and run it right into the sump hole.

I used 4 beach-sized towels.. wasn't too bad at all. I hope I don't have to do it again for a year.

The towels are necessary during the defrosting process to keep water from leaking out the door as well as for cleanup.

I had to laugh ... when I saw you were from Indiana, all I could think is wait 'til a sub-freezing day, put in the cooler on the porch.

my freezer is supposedly frost free, but even cleaning it can be a royal pain because I cannot unplug it. Thank heaven the issue doesn't come up often!
