It was so easy to do and I saved myself over $200. One thing you have to do is let the unit defrost 24-48 hours before putting the new adapter in.

1. Remove plastic cover at the top of the refrigerator side, little tricky getting it loose (just have to shimmy it around a little)

2. Remove light bulbs

3. Remove the 5-7 screws and bolts (i suggest you draw a little diagram so you know where they go later). They all came out easy except small one above left light bulb required a little more time.

4. Pull down the plastic cover and the in the back right corner is a little computer chip device (the Adapter) gently release it and wait for your new part to arrive.

5. Reassemble and enjoy your practically new fridge :)
