Read articles online from other sites. Other sites stated part was behind unit and to replace it on top of the compressor. Wrong. Part was behind freezer section on this model. Removed 4 screws from freezer to find out I also needed to thraw all the ice from behind plate in freezer. This took the longest time approx time 1/2 hour to do this. After that the part was easy to install. If I knew the part was behind the freezer plate the total time would have been around an hour to do. Please remember to pull the plug before you start cutting wires to replace the thermostat kit. It has now been running for about a week and no problems at this time with refrigerator
