Once the thermostat is removed, take a picture of the cords (still connected) to help with reassembly. Then proceed to disconnect the wires.

Remove the three cords on the front side of the thermostat by simply pulling the plastic connector off for two connections and doing the same for the metal connection. Do the same to the back side, disconnecting another plastic connector and then remove the thermostat.

Peter, I have the same fridge and it never dropped any colder than 43F. Is this the same issue you were having? Did changing the thermostat fix it?

Thanks!
