First I removed the freezer racks. Used a screwdriver to remove the two screws on the back panel and the two screws on the bottom rack holder. Then used a blow dryer to defrost the ice from the evaporator, removed the two screws for the heater and replaced with the new one. Took out the old Thermostat and spliced in the new one.

I ordered the sensor temp as well but did not install it yet because the location of this was awkward. I thought the instruction on this site was great! This was a very easy repair and so far it seems to have solved my problem.

I has only been a week but so far so good.

I will always use this site in the future. Parts and fellow stories saved a lot of money.
