unplugged frig, removed shelves & inner lower back panel in freezer side, removed defrost thermostat from tube, cut the wires and spliced in new stat wires with provided wire splices crimped together and replaced thermostat on tube it has been a week and no ice so far??. this was after 2 trips by the repairman who replace the defrost timer board which was most likely good at a total of $160!!! still cheaper than $1000 for a new frig!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
