EASY install—I watched the video from your web site ( very helpful in knowing what to look at AND how to do!!!) ….
My refrigerator had a single heater and the ONLY heater to replace was a DUAL heater. No worries, after letting ice on coils defrost, I moved the RED wire( the refrigerator has 2 wires going to the heater--- RED and BLUE) across the top of the coils over to the Blue wire and “gently” pull a little slack (about 4 inches) to make the RED wire the same length as the BLUE….. no need to use the supplied wiring kit with the heater. After the wire was rerouted to the bottom—where the new heater is installed-- I connected the wires, installed the heater, put on cover and plugged the refrigerator back to power.
ALL-in-ALL, very EASY install.
The actual time to install the heater--- about 15 min. BUT to defrost the coils takes about 45 min.
