Take off the panel in the freezer side to expose the heater, defrost all the ice. Remove the screws that hold the heater in place and remove the wires from each end. Plug in the new unit and replace screws. Replace screws in the freezer panel, to complete the instulation. It will take the most time to defrost the ice, and clean up the water. To help defroct I used my wifes hair dryer. (She did not know it)
