OK I haven't seen/had a you do it defrost fridge since my mom had one back in the 1960s. I am hoping someone here has some experience. lol Do I need to remove the food from the fridge? It does seem to have a drip tray under the freezer. The freezer itself it hideous. Do I need to do anything besides set it to defrost? I remember Momma putting hot water in a pan in the freezer to heat up the air etc. Any help will be much appreciated.
