I removed the interior back of the fridge and used a hairdryer to defrost the enormous amount of ice that had built up. After all the ice was gone, it became evident that the defrost heater was the problem - the glass tube had turned black. I removed the old part and its wires and replaced with the new part. It was a bit tricky with the wires but I made sure to pay attention how to put them back when I removed the old ones.
