After ordering the parts. I followed the directions shown in the video. After unplugging electric cord. My insides looked a bit different, but the approach was the same. Unscrewed the nuts holding the back panel in place,disconnected ground wire. Hand a mountain of ice covering the unit, melted it away using hair dryer. Found and replaced defrost themosat,then disassembled defrost heater bracket and noticed the bulb had blown. Installed the new unit in less than 5 minutes. Reassembled the panel, plugged in the fridge and in about 8 hours its was working better than before and all I could think about was that I did and how much money I saved. Wow
