Remove frost
build up in
your freezer to
maximise efficiency.

To maintain maximum efficiency, regularly defrost your freezer.

To prevent excess frost from building up, it is recommended by Canstar Blue to keep your freezer at a temperature of -18ºC. While not harmful, the build-up of frost can block vents and sensors, leading to reduced operational efficiency and higher running expenses.

Frost build-up occurs when moisture adheres to the freezer walls, often happening when you open the freezer or if the seal is not properly functioning. Although most modern freezers are equipped with inbuilt defrost cycles, it is best to review your manufacturer’s instructions to see how to best remove build up.
