The electronic control did not defrost the coils. I had to use a screw driver to pry the unit off of the door. The instructions on line said use a putty knife or butter knife. I bent both trying to remove it. I suggest using a heavy duty screw driver. Once the unit was removed it was simple to put the new one back. It just snapped back in place. I also replaced the thermostat just in case. It's like buying $11.50 insurance. That required removing several screws and unsnapping the thermostat and unplugging the wires. Then putting the new thermostat back and plugging in the wires. Very easy to change the thermostat.
