In freezer box removed shelf, removed 2 screws from back panel, removed 3 plastic covers (1 with 2 screws, other 2 snaped out. unsnaped defrost thermostat from copper tube then cut 2 wires (yellow & orange) stripped all wires back a little then used 2 wire nuts to reconnect the new thermostat and resnapped back onto the copper tube. Removed 4 screws from evaporator fan housing (original one warped from overheat and caused fan blade to get chewed up) unpluged fan motor wiring and removed ground wire and motor from warped housing, removed fan plade by just pulling on it. Installed new fan blade by pushing it on the fan motor shaft, reinstalled the fan to the housing and the housing into the freezer box. In the frig box I removed the control panel from top of the box by removing 4 screws and unpluging the main wiring plug and the defroster control then reinstalled it all in reverse order. Also had to renew the stick on foam on the evap fan housing. over all it was an easy task.
