Hello My name is Ian ~ I am not on the site constantly so please be patient whilst waiting for responses to you queries
Have you fully defrosted the back panels?
How did you do it? It takes two days to defrost one of these or about an hour with a hot steam hose, if there is any ice at the back of the second panel it will cause you to pull off the evaporator from its mountings and if you are not careful fracture one of the pipes.
Yes it took 48 hours last time. I have a fan heater going this time but it is possible that there is still ice build up behind panel. Would this prevent me removing panel?
Yes the ice collects around the finned evaporator and sticks to the evaporator cover, leave it a while and have another go, but be careful you don't split the plastic or get the fan heater too close and melt it. Im around when you get off the cover ~ Ian
Many thanks Ian, first time on this so how do I get back to you?

completely defrosted, 2 screws removed from panel but panel is stuck solid. Should the panel just pull out. Allan
