Frozen over back wall in freezer - not cold in fridge - top of freezer not freezing

1: unplugged the power to the fridge to allow it to defrost the back wall of the freezer
2: cleaned all the water from the thaw job
3: removed the shelves in the freezer
4: removed freezer light bulb cover, and all screws on the back wall that hold the panel cover over the coils (this is on the inside of the freezer compartment)
5: removed heater element that was obviously burned out -- looked like a burned out light bulb -- the rubber insulator ends were dry cracked
6: replaced with new heater element
7: cut wires to thermostat -- removed old thermostat
8: used wire nuts to connect the new thermostat (used water proof silicone on wire nut connections)
9: reinstalled thermostat to coil, installed back wall panel with screws, and then put the shelves back in
10: set the fridge and freezer to 5


simple as pie -- good luck!
