I cannot express enough WOWs!!!! Evidently when Katrina shut off power for 4 days, the tube became blocked when power came back on. When I lifted the panel there was a sheet of ice about 1/4 inch thick covering almost the whole surface. I had no idea it was there. When the heater defrosted the freezer, the water had no place to go.
I tried using the blow dryer first and it just would not finish it off. I finally used the turkey baster with hot water and the results were immediate!! I also took the opportunity to unbutton everything and give it a thorough cleaning. Boy did it need it.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!!! I will be singing your praises for a long time, and that of this site!! Do you have any idea how much money you just saved me??? I suppose you do. Thanks again.
