CustomerThomas from Cottage Grove MN

Defroster element and or thermostat was not working.

removed the shelves in the freezer compartment and removed the two screws holding the back panel on over the coils and simply removed the male wire plug from the female plug and pulled the wires for the heating element down thru the coils and released the spring clip holding the element in place and removed, and installed the new element and thermostat in reverse order. Very simple.

CustomerSteve from Marion IN

Not defrosting the coils warming up the compartments

Removed housing on the freezer side and removed the assembly by removing the two bottom clips and then unclipping the wire harness, two prong, and replaced as remvoved. Power was off of course. Watched for 24 hours and recovered housing and its been working great.
