Unplugging the fridge.
First, i unloaded the freezer to access the back panel. Remove the shelving and light bulb. Next, i unscrewed 4 screws to remove the back panel. Then, I cut the wires to the defrost thermostat and spliced in the new thermostat. To replace the heater, unscrewed 2 screws but only used 1 screw to attach the new heater because it was shorter than the original.
Hopefully, this works. I'm unsure because the old components seemed to work when testing them with a multimeter outside of the freezer.
