Walk-in Freezer with 3 in of ice frozen in drain pan
The timer energizes the drain pan heater at the same time as the evaporator coil heaters. Can I just remove the x-terminal from the Timer and leave the pan heater on to melt the ice? Will that burn out the coil defrost heaters? I already cleared the drain, (I got out a blue tab and screw from a solenoid that was stuck in there, and a zip tie) and the drain pipe heater is working so the pipe isn't frozen, and the melting water drains freely out, and is also properly trapped outside. There are two separate evaporators in the space, and the 2nd coil in the freezer working fine. Is there a better way? Thank you.
