Is it OK to use a hand steamer to melt ice when defrosting the freezer? I find my indoor outdoor vac sure saves time, my legs, and back to clean up the water that is in the bottom.

I am not sure, but the steam might damage the plastic parts. I use a fan, as someone posted on here last week. Works as fast as anything I have ever tried. Nice idea about the shop vac! I found that a Rubbermaid tote fits perfectly in the bottom of my freezer and catches most of the ice and water. I use newspaper to absorb drips.
Don't do it. My dad melted the inside of our freezer years ago using a hair dryer.
I have used a hair dryer before and had no problems. Just use a slow steady stream of air, and do not focus in one place for too long. Use towels or a pan below to catch the drips/ice chunks. Good luck!
