I removed the shelves, then two screws and a ground clip from the back and removed the back of the freezer compartment. Two screws that held the defrost heater were removed and two wires from the old heater. One wire was rerouted to the left side. The wires were plugged into the new heater, then the back was replaced with the two screws and ground clip. Have several towels on hand for the melting ice. In the end, after about 15 minutes the repair cost approx. $47.00 instead of the $185.00 plus the cost of the part that I was quoted from GE repair.
