Fast defrost experiment
It was getting difficult to get the drawers out, the socket could not be reached, and it was about freezing outdoors. So an experiment was tried.
The freezer was fast defrosted while powered up using a 330w centrifugal fan. Progress was rapid, with water raining down as seen in the video clip.
Air was blown in at the bottom, with each shelf only defrosting once the one below had defrosted. Blowing it in nearer the middle might double the rate of progress.
Fan noise made the overtemperature alarm inaudible, this is not one to do at night.
The job was done in around 50 minutes.
