removed back panel in freezer. defrosted coil, with hair drier. removed defrost heater kit. it was shot. ordered part sunday late afternoon and received the part tuesday am. great service. freezer and refrigerator worked fine after defrosting, but you want to replace the part to avoid freezing up again. to remove back panel, you remove 2 bottom guide rails 4 screws, 2 hex screws from back panel, 2 screws from defrost heater. i did have to splice wire [ provided with kit ] to reach heater.i did remove back panel twice and replace. without defrost time, even removing back panel twice, time for repair was little over an hour. at $40.00, with little down time, lots of savings, i will always deal with partselect. thanks you guys. i did the repair at 66 years of age, with no problem. you can to. one more tip. when defrosting, i placed aluminum foil under the coil and slightly up back wall. the foil was shaped to run water into a bowl in the freezer so it would not overflow the defrost pan underneath.
