I unplugged the refrigerator then removed the temperature adjustment knob from the thermostat which protrudes through the plastic cover located inside the top of the freezer compartment. Then the two hex head retaining screws were removed from the underside of the plastic cover allowing it to drop down and grant access to the bad thermostat control module which was then unplugged and removed from its mounting. The temperature probe is also removed from its sheath at this point as it's attached to the thermostat and has to be removed as well, it simply slides out of the sheath. Installation of the new part is the reverse of the removal of the old part. My refrigerator now works as good as new. Problem solved. The replacement part seemed a little bit pricey for what it is but, in my opinion, was delivered very quickly. As stated by another here, writing this report has taken longer than the repair did.
