Bailey, thanks.  Can this be done from the FRONT of the freezer?  The whole upper part of the rear of the fridge is covered by a thick aluminum plate.  If from the front, I'm totally game.

I just looked and I see the two bolt heads near the front on the bottom of the freezer floor.  Is the defrost drain you mentioned easy to find and clearly visible?  I assume it must be right under where the plastic floor of the freezer compartment sits, towards the rear?

BTW, is there an easy place online to buy a service manual for this model, if I decide to do so, as perhaps a PDF download?

Webster, thanks again to you as well.  If I find ice there, do you think it would thaw out in 3-4 days in warm SoCal weather with the freezer floor removed?  Or, as Bailey said, I could speed it up with a hair dryer perhaps.  Anyway, thanks so very much.

The freezer coil, defrost drain and air passage ways are all visible when you remove the rear wall of the freezer.And, yes, this is done from the front.

So, just confirming: I don't have that metal plate on the back?  That looks like a serious job.  Thanks again.

The metal plate on your model is inside the freezer, number 16 in the attached diagram of your model.

Hope you find our site helpful.
