Unplug, remove the back and the front grill. Loosen bolts on thermostat in the front, open frig door and loosen bolts holding bracket for other end of thermostat. Chip away insulation so that coil could be pulled from inside frig to outside. Bolt in new thermostat from the front and feed pig tail on other end through the hole so it's inside the backing in the frig. It's challenging but you need to feed the pigtail into the existing bracket and fasten the bolts again. Put insulation back in where you chipped out and install the back and front grill.
