calentador del freezer
Explanation: una opcion basada en contexto muy escaso:
The defrost heater is an electric element similar to the burners on an electric stove. It's located just beneath the cooling coils, which are concealed behind a panel in the freezer compartment. The heater gets hot when the timer allows electricity to flow through it. Because the heater is close to the cooling coils, any ice or frost build-up melts.
As the frost and ice melt, the resulting water drips into a trough. The trough is connected to a tube that drains the water into a shallow pan at the bottom of the freezer. The water is then evaporated by either:
A fan that blows warm air from the compressor motor over the pan and out the front of the freezer
Or, if the pan is on top of the compressor, by the heat of the compressor. http://www.repairclinic.com/Freezer-How-Things-Work
Hope this helps
