Default Ice on Haier Kegerator

I have a Haier Kegerator with ice that has formed on the coils (inside the fridge). Is this normal, or do I need to defrost.....or do something better to get rid of the ice?

I would suggest not to try to chisel away. Seems like you have some precipitation occurring during cycling. I would defrost it, clean it up, and then go grab some damprid and place it in the kegerator.

You need to defrost it like juvinious said. Instead of damp rid you can put a fan in there to circulate the air, that will help alot. (Its what they do in a typical freezer.)
