Defrosting the freezer

The Wi-Fi temperature sensor (black wire at the top of the photo) has been reporting disturbingly high temperatures in the garage freezer for the past couple of weeks, signaling the need for defrosting.

We’re tackling the problem this morning.

That’s not blood on the bottom of the freezer – it’s juice from bags of cherries we brought back from Indiana in July.

I shifted the frozen meat and vegetables into a couple of coolers and set up a high-intensity work light to get some heat into the freezer, since the ambient garage temperature of 45° was too cold to quickly melt the slab of ice on the back of the freezer.
