Unplug the appliance. Removed back panel inside freezer compartment to find the freezer coils covered in ice. Defrosted freezer area with hair dryer and towels. Removed the old defroster heater (one bulb) and replaced withe the improved two bulb unit. I had to splice an extension wire included into the one wire as the old wire wasn't quite long enough to attach to the new defroster. Put it all back together and plugged it in. It's been two weeks and working fine.
