First I removed the clamp, pulled out the part, and diconnected the two wires on the side and a small screw. Reconnected the new part with the small screw, connected the wires and plugged the part back to the side of the motor. Whaa La, Done.

Took out the screws(8mm). Used pliers to close new hinges. Re-installed the screws with as large washers as would fit(to hopefully prevent the hinges from cracking at the screw holes like the originals did). I like this supplier, part was easy to find, correct part, shipped fast, price was good.

Defrosted freezer, hose broke due to dry-rot. Used towels to let water drain into pan. Now with the plug minimal frost build-up. No ice at all. Now if I could get a new hose to drain the water that would be great.

I replaced the thermostat. (Note: On a chest freezer, there is a copper tube going up into the wall of the freezer. The capillary of the thermostat goes into this tube.) 1. Unplug freezer. 2. Remove temperature knob. 3. Remove screws and remove cover plate. 4. Unclip old thermostat. 5. Using pliers, gently pull down the rubber seal on the capillary where it enters the copper tube. 6. Pull capillary out of copper tube. (In my case, the capillary was not free to pull out. I had to grasp the capillary with pliers and tug hard.) 7. Place rubber seal over the new capillary. 8. Insert the new capillary into the copper tube and put the rubber seal over the end of the copper tube. 9. Install thermostat body in the cover plate using the clip on the thermostat body. 10. Replace cover plate and temperature knob.
