This a top refrigerator with a bottom freezer. Turned freezer temperature dial to the off position. After removing everything from the freezer compartment, remove the back panel hex screws (7) total. Removed panel. Placed large fan in the freezer compartment on high for about 40 minutes to sublimate all the ice on the freezer coils. Removed and replaced the defrost thermostat on the right side of the compartment, it is clipped onto the coils. Replaced back panel and screws. Turned freezer control back to previous setting. It's been working fine for weeks now. Old part was ruptured, apparently from overheating (internal contacts became too resistive) during a defrost cycle.
