get rid of ice that is in the top of my upright freezer and is building up and stopping the door from closing properly as it's starting to creep out? I know it's used for ice and snow on footpaths, so if I put it into a spray bottle and aim it at the ice, is it likely to melt the ice? The freezer is quite full and I have nowhere to put the food whilst I defrost it properly(and it's meant to be frost freehmm), so I really need to do something as a short term thing.
Or...any other tips other than chipping away(which I've done as much as I can)or hairdryer...Please.

Sorry, don't know. Is there anything in the manual about this happening?

I haven't a clue where it is tbh. I've had it from new for about 9 years and it's been doing this for about 7 of them. I doubt it's meant to ice up at all though.
Thank you anyay.

Maybe...didn't think of that. I want to make as little watery mess as possible so as not to wreck my laminate flooring. I'll give that some thought too. Thank you.

Years ago, I was able to take everything out and pile it up on a plastic sheet and cover it all up with towels, but I can't do that in this house. I only need to sort out the top two shelves as the rest are plastic drawers and not iced up.
