It's common to have a small amount of ice form at the back of the fridge but it's time to take action when you see around ½ inch of ice build-up.
This is to ensure your food is preserved at the correct temperature and to minimise energy waste.
Most modern fridges and freezers are frost-free but older models will need regular defrosting to prevent the build-up of ice.
You should always defrost if the ice becomes 3mm or more thick.
That should be all you need to make sure your fridge/freezer is defrosted correctly.
