I WENT TO THE FREEZER SIDE OF THE UNIT AND PULLED THE GRATES,THEN USED A NUT DRIVER TO REMOVE THE SCREWS AND PLATE FROM THE BACK OF THE UNIT. I LOCATED THE THERMOSTAT AND FOUND IT HAD A QUICK CONNECTOR TO TIE IT INTO THE WIREING I WANTED TO SALVAGE THIS SO I CLIPPED THE LEADS OFF THE OLD THERMOSTAT AND ATTACHED THEM TO THE NEW THERMOSTAT ,THEN IT WAS JUST CLIPP THE NEW THERMO TO THE OLD ONES POSITION. THEN I CHECKED THE DEFROST TIMER POSITION FINALLY FOUND IT (ON LEFT HAND SIDE UNDER FRONT DOOR FRAME ) IT WAS HELD ON BY TWO SCREWS. AND HAD A SNAP ON CONNECTOR. SIMPLE REPAIR. BOUGHT THE UNIT FOR FOURTY DOLLARS AT A GARAGE SALE. IT HAD SOLD AT COSTCO IN 98, FOR $980. WILL SEND THE PARTS I DIDN'T USE , BACK. RUNS AS GOOD AS NEW SWEET UNIT FOR LESS THEN $100
