After removing the key from its shipping package I pushed it into the freezer locking slot and turned it to lock and unlock the lid and then removed it. I had no problems with this fix. Of course, I am an older gentleman with a lot of experience in repairs around my house,as well as other houses. I am sure that a less experienced person may have more of problem with this type of "repair".

first removed two screws that held handle. Then replaced. Ordered a motor 3 years ago from land office with verbal over counter instructions and that was easier but to get part this time was very simple ! With the model number and name brand input on site I had part in 3 days instead of waiting for a chance to visit land store and HOPE they had the part. Y'all might consider a zoom feature for us older folks.

I was surprised that the screws and trim piece were not included so make sure you have them from the old handle or order new. First removed the broken ends still on the freezer. I removed the small metal brackets from the old handle and put them on the new one, screwed the handle to the freezer and put the trim piece on. Real easy.

This was an easy job. First remove the ice maker, if you have one. Mine was mounted with just two screws. Loosen these screws, unplug the power cord at the connector and then lift the ice maker off. Remove the light bulb cover and the light bulb, just so you dont break it. Remove two hex screws and the back cover can be removed. My fan was mounted in the middle of a bracket retained between two rubber bushingings. Just push the fan blad of the shaft and pull the motoer out. Dissonect the power cord at the connector. My moter was differant than the replacement on the mounting so with the removial of the two screws on the motor I was able to exchange the upper and lower cast motoer housings. Reverse the assembly process and you good. Mine is running great.

Took interior panel off and uncliped yhe termination switch and cliped the new one on the coil and connected the two wires very simple. The defrost timer was located in the rear of the unit on the right side at the bottom. Removed the 2 screws holding the bracket unpluged the timer and removed the timer. The new timer allready had a bracket so just plug in and install the 2 screws. Pluged the unit in and worked great make sure that the freezer is unpluged before changing any part
