Only had to remove 2 screws and slide the fan cover panel down and out, then lift out the coil cover panel. Then used a space heater to thaw the coils (block of ice) so that I could get to the defrost heating element (OK, so I was in a hurry. Could have just unplugged for a day an let it thaw on its own). Defrost heating element has just one connector (snaps in place), one thermo-switch (snaps onto coil) and one supporting retainer clip to disconnect. Literally under a minute at this point to remove the old one and replace it with the new one. I recommend two retainer clips to hold the new element in place, since the old element had sagged a lot with only one clip and that could have contributed to its demise. Reinstall the two panels, secure with the two screws, plug it back in, done deal. Works like new again. I was very impressed with these parts - they were exact and obviously factory replacements. It doesn't get any easier than this.
I followed the video on Part Select which covered everything in detail. The longest time was to defrost the coils. After removing the cover, part of the coils were iced up. The actual repair only took about 10 minutes. I had found my old heater element had bent so it was no longer heating the coils. I also replaced the Adaptive Defrost Timer since both work in conjunction with each other. Thank you Part Select for making life easier.
I watched your video, took notes, ordered the parts and installed them. Refrigerator works great. Might not have needed all three components, however I live in a remote part of Alaska so I ordered the works. Thinking that the other parts were also well used also and probably close to failure. THE REFRIGERATOR IS WORKING LIKE NEW. Your delivery time was astonishing. I order alot over the internet. The video was very well filmed and had all the right info, easy to understand. I would like to do business with you again. But you'll have to wait awhile for this frig to break again. Thanks alot.
Unplug the refrigerator, open the back of the freezer, there were blocks of ice everywhere. I defrosted the ice using hair drier. Remove the heater and thermostat assembly and replace it with the new one.
I removed the screws on the covers and remove them, then taken the screws from the timer, the temperature control just set in there, then pulled out a lttle ways and disconnected the wires and then removed. Installed the new ones. I taken the back panel off and removed the clip and pulled the defrost heater out a ways and removed the wires and removed the defrost heater. Installed the new defrost heater and clip and the covers.
