Buying a new one from my understanding is expensive as the need to take the windshield out. I would imagine we are talking in the $1,500 to $2,000. Not in the budget.
Open freezer. Back panel inside of freezer. It is white with screws in it. There is a fan under it. Don't need to pull unit or anything.The fan circulates the cold air from the freezer to refrigerator.
