Defrosting-is melting the ice-so yes you have to take the content out and secure it -otherwise it'll be wasted:(

But as I described in my other post-I have this freezer almost 5yrs and never defrosted it! I just take the content out and scrub the exces ice/snow with either wood spatula or knife(gently to not destroy the freezer) and toss it to the sink, wipe the freezer out and you have the freezercleaned:) I also use baking soda oxes (change it monthly and keep them in the freezer to have it not to stinky:))especially when u store some meat/fish in there:)

good luck

Defrosting
It is important to defrost and clean freezer when ¼ to ½ inch of frost has accumulated.
Frost may tend to accumulate faster on upper part of the freezer due
to warm, moist air entering the freezer when the door is opened. Remove food
and leave the door open when defrosting the freezer.
If the frost is soft, remove it by using a plastic scraper. If the frost is glazed and
hard, fill deep pans with hot water and place them on the freezer bottom. Close
the freezer door. Frost should soften in about 15 minutes. Repeat this procedure
if necessary.
Cleaning the Inside
After defrosting, wash inside surfaces of the freezer with a solution of two
tablespoons of baking soda in one quart (1.136 liters) warm water. Rinse and
dry. Wring excess water out of the sponge or cloth when cleaning in the area of
the controls, or any electrical parts.
Wash the removable parts with the baking soda solution mentioned above, or
mild detergent and warm water. Rinse and dry. Never use metallic scouring
pads, brushes, abrasive cleaners, or alkaline solutions on any surface. Do not
wash removable parts in a dishwasher.

Yes. I would believe so. Once a delivery comes to your house the delivery guy would usually dispose of your old stuff in order to let you have your new unit but it's usually good to leave them with a tip just out of courtesy.

I think with any kind of expensive electrical equipment you should definitely consider a surge protector.

No, it will not hurt the freezer in any way, but we don't recommend a surge protector.

they recommend you place the freezer on something solid because if it is not leveled properly it can offset the lid so that it will not seal completely and will cause the freezer to malfunction

I just got mine and can't speak from experience on this unit. However, experience with other freezers has shown that sometimes freezers will form a hard seal that is very hard to open if you try to open it too quickly after you just closed it. I used to know why but I forgot. At least it means you've got a good seal!
