First I thank parts select for such fast shipment and correct parts.
The main problem was defrosting the coils between the freezer and fridge. The cover plate over the coils could not be removed untill some of the Ice melted.Removed freezer door, and screws each side of outer frige cover to enable cover plate to slide out.(Outer walls have to be pried out a little). R&R heater coil (shorted out and glass broken).Defrost thermo.located behind coils replaced as precaution. Defrost Timer located at bottom of fridge frame next to compressor. A couple of screws and unplug and plug in new part .(Also replaced as precaution-not qualified to test and dont want to do the job over) Thanks to google for info.First time for this job. You can do it.
