Did a resistance check on the old defrost heater. It was out of the specified resistance. Removed cover over cooling coils in freezer. Removed old defrost heater/thermostat assembly with a pair of needle nosed pliers. Plugged in new assembly, and installed new thermostat, and retaining clip for heater assembly. Reinstalled cooling coil cover. Refrigerator has never been colder.
