I have a maytag fridge freezer and I got up this morning with daughter saying, water isn't working on fridge door and yoghurt was frozen and other stuff. The fridge has a fan at top left, with daughter and her son here the fridge is full, food and kids stuff, yoghurt fruit (inpottles) cheeses and lots of stuff. The fan was basically blocked off with food in front of it. Decided on a clean out, man food accumulates. Two and a half hrs later it's looking like new. Took frozen water filter out and ran hot water to thaw out. Everything working perfect again. Pile of expired food thrown out. Ice and water working to.

Don't overload your fridge.!!

Took inventory of the outside refrigerator's freezer on Saturday. Threw away some unmarked stuff and took the frozen water bottles out. Have a list of the items and will start using them up. Also put the components for the meat grinder in there as we have two pork shoulders and two beef knuckles to break down and grind. Some of the beef knuckle will be cut for stew meat and roast beef. The pork will be made into sausage. Garlic sausage to go with the confit duck legs for cassoulet and Mexican chorizo.

This week, probably Wednesday, I'm going to defrost my stand alone upright freezer. It is cold enough outside that I will put the coolers/boxes outdoors, and will be around to watch for any unexpected predators. I have inventorized it - but did not always remember to note when things have been taken out. This will HAPPEN.

and I had him put the list out there with a pen so things could be marked off as used and added as needed. Once that one is done, on to the deep freeze and the refrigerator freezer inside the house.
We've just cleaned the two garage freezers, ice got built up. Some freezer burnt stuff thrown out as well.
