Freezer wouldn't go in to defrost cycle

After some troubleshooting to ensure the thermostat and heating element were working, determined that the defrost timer was the problem. With the defective part, I was able to manually advance the timer to activate the defrost cycle, but it wouldn't do so on its own. Unplugged the refrigerator from the wall. Timer is located in the refrigerator compartment at the very top. The compartment houses the cooling thermostat, the light bulb and the defrost timer. Using 1/4" nut driver, remove 4 screws holding compartment cover to top of fridge. Lower a bit to access electrical wiring. Wiring harness can be unplugged to work on the timer away from the fridge which makes it a bit easier. Timer is mounted with 2 phillips head screws. Remove screws and unplug timer from wiring. Install new timer, plug in wiring, secure with the phillips head screws and remount entire compartment.

It took less time to change out the rail than it did to take all the items off the shelf. Literally. Old rail holds on to the door with two snap in notches. I was able to easily unsnap the two ends of the broken rail and snap in the new rail in less than 30 seconds. No tools or mechanical knowledge needed.

I did not believe the other posts about how easy this was because that is not at all how any project goes for me. I was wrong. The original gasket slid out of the lip around the door and the new one went back on in less than 5 minutes. It has made a HUGE difference in the performance of the fridge. It did take 2 or 3 days for the gasket to fully conform to the fridge itself, but there was still a good seal during that time.
