First I unpluged, open the back right side, and I put a sponge to get the water that was melting from the unit, at front took the ice bucket off, pull the three shelvings and the lower drawer off too, unscrew three little nutscrews (1/4) from the middle and two from the bottom, pull the cover sideways and you can see the Thermostat on the left side top of the coils, just unplug one and cut the other, for the heater evaporator, there two clips holding it, pull the clips off and replace the unit, put everything back together and believe me will work, after two hours you can see the difference, I call many places for the repair i was gonna get charge $90.00 for the check, another $90.00 per hour plus parts, I just spend less than $70.00 Thank guys.
