Q:

How to replace the defrost heater for model 10673209300

A:

Thank you for your question.

I have checked the model number you have submitted. To replace the defrost element you have to remove all the food in the freezer then unplug the unit. Next, remove the shelf and the bottom tray. If your model has an icemaker, you will need to remove it. It is secured to the sidewall usually with three screws. Then remove the screws that secures the back wall and pull it out of the freezer. Please use the image below to help remove the back wall. The back wall can be tricky to remove so take your time. Once it is out of the way you have access to the evaporator and the defrost heater. I recommend drawing a diagram of the wiring before removing the wires so that you do not forget where they go. Then remove the wires for the heater and remove it. Install the new heater making sure that it is routed and secured to the evaporator. Reassemble the refrigerator and plug it back in. it can take a few days to find out if the heater is working.

Please let me know if you need further assistance on this repair.
