Replace and relocate the defrost thermostat, install air deflector and raise the heating element.  Position the defrost thermostat at the location shown below.
For Canadian Market Only:

Follow Steps 2 and 3 below.

For All Other Markets:

1. The replacement thermostat is part # 5303917954 icon.
2. Install Styrofoam deflector part # 240518402 (Cut to Fit) in order to deflect more heat from the defrost heater to the upper portion of the evaporator coil.
