Unplug the power. Open the panel in the back of the freezor. Use the hair dryer to defrosted the ice that buildup. Write down the color of the wire before disconnect the defrost thermostat. Take the new one and connect the wire the same way that I took it out. Plug in the power. I check the Defrost timer by turn the red knob, first click sound-the cooling stop, turn to another click-the cooling start again. leave it run to see that the defrost timer is working OK. Then I put the panal back. Everything is back to normal.
