Water was leaking down the drip tray and out of the freezer door after defrost, I cleared the drain with hot water & a coat hanger... this was Friday but I'm not sure it's done a defrost cycle since.  Freezer is set 0f fridge 36f

It doesn't appear this model has a standard timer, but is computer controlled... how can I force a defrost cycle?

Go to web site "" they will have two procedures there to manually force defrost. One should work.
