1) Are these evaporator coils accessible from inside the freezer? Any help or reference to web info, illustrations, etc., would be appreciated. I presume I would need to empty and defrost the freezer to get access?
2) What gauge copper wire? Would 14 gauge normal house wiring (solid core, stripped) be OK? Or should it be lighter gauge?
3) "Appliance Man" mentioned a "defrost probe" as an available fix. I imagined this as a low wattage heater which could be inserted into the drain tube and connected so as to come on during the defrost cycle. Do you know anything about that? He imlpied it was a 'fix' offered by the manufacturer or someone else.
