How often should I defrost my freezer?

"For optimal use of the freezer it is best to defrost it once every 3-6 months. Ice on the inside of the freezer reduces the available space and increases the use of energy. The thawing process can be accelerated by placing hot water in the drawer or placing bowls of hot water in the freezer."

My freezer needs a defrost, I am unable to open the top drawer. I cannot see the electric switch so cannot turn it off at the wall, unable so far to download a manual and do not know of any other way. Are you able to help please?

I would like to defrost my freezer. Unfortunately, I can't figure out the control panel in the refrigerator compartment.

I don't remember the Zanussi model, but is it really the case that I can't turn off the freezer section of my fridge-freezer without the fridge also turning off? In my previous appliances, I have been able to turn off the freezer if I don't need it or when I defrost the freezer.
