First i killed the power and water supply to fridge. Then i removed all the racks in freezer and the 1/4" screws for rack supports with nut driver. Next i removed the evaporator cover 1/4" screws to gain access.

this repair was easy.just screw off the cap and the filter is inside and put new filter in the cap and replace.that is all there was to it and i was glad i could do it myself.
Used pliers to remove filter.
Received parts as ordered. Removed a few screws, pulled unit out of freezer door, replaced broken lever. Took about 30 minutes which was mostly cleaning everyrhing. Replaced switch cover as well. Now not only does it work like new it looks like new. Thanks
The longest part of replacing the drawer was swapping all the veggies out of the old one. No tools,slid the glass drawer front from the old one and slid it into the new one.
Ordered parts, and replaced them. Living in Alaska it made the shipping take a little longer but they arrived and now the top hinge dosen't pop out, door shuts nicley and we were able to turn the temp. control down which in the long run will save electricity.
Took the front off my drawer and reinstalled it on the new drawer. Very easy.
I went to the freezer side of the unit and pulled the grates,then used a nut driver to remove the screws and plate from the back of the unit. I located the thermostat and found it had a quick connector to tie it into the wireing I wanted to salvage this so I clipped the leads off the old thermostat and attached them to the new thermostat ,then it was just clipp the new thermo to the old ones position. Then I checked the defrost timer position finally found it (on left hand side under front door frame ) it was held on by two screws. And had a snap on connector. Simple repair. Bought the unit for fourty dollars at a garage sale. It had sold at costco in 98, for $980. Will send the parts I didn't use , back. Runs as good as new sweet unit for less then $100
2 screws and remove connecters and reinstall in reverse order but!!!first unplug stove
