Your wires will come out of the original overload/relay/start pak but Frigidaire loves to put the little spade retainer locks on there spade clips. You can pull and tug all day long and they won't come out. You have to get a little tiny straight screwdriver, (jewelers screwdrivers), and slide it down in the little square cutout area next to each spade clip and push the little retaining clip while pulling on the wire and it will release and come right out.
You won't have to worry about doing this since the new relay/overload has a different connector, so just cut the old wires and slice the new connector onto the existing wires that you cut off the old overload/relay.

There is a heater kit "bandaid" fix available from GE to dress this issue...and yes it is freezing in the door, most likely right behind the cradle in the small recessed area.
you can use a hairdryer to warm this area and thaw it or I use a zoom spout oil bottle filled with hot water...the tube off the bottle is the perfect size to push down the dispenser tube and flush out the ice plug...reg will be along directly to link you the fix kit, I am sure...
No Water from the Dispenser on a GE Refrigerator

Once rarely found in nature, the potentially deadly black yeast fungi have begun to expand their territory.
And the new frontier could be your kitchen.
A team of European scientists sampled nearly 190 dishwashers in family homes around the world. They found black yeasts living on 62 percent of the rubber seals surrounding the dishwasher door.
The study appears in the journal Fungal Biology.
According to the researchers, black yeasts are “extremophile” fungi, which means they thrive in extreme temperatures and conditions.
The high heat, harsh detergents and humidity provided by dishwashers, coffee machines and washing machines provide just the right touch of comfort for these deadly fungi.
"The discovery of this widespread presence of extremophilic fungi in some of our common household appliances suggests that these organisms have embarked on an extraordinary evolutionary process that could pose a significant risk to human health in the future," said the authors.
The yeasts, also known as Exophiala dermatitidis and E. phaeomuriformis, have been associated with illness and death in people.
According to the researchers, the fungi are especially partial to the lungs, so people with cystic fibrosis are most at risk.
One of the authors, Nina Gunde-Cimerman, a microbiologist at the University of Ljubljana in Slovenia, told The Daily Telegraph one thing not mentioned in the report was that "we tested the dishes after they had been cleaned in these dishwashers and they were full of this black yeast, so too the cutlery that you put in your mouth. We just don't know how serious this could be."
The researchers say other fungi species also were found in the rubber seal.
And they warned that "further research is imperative," given the ubiquity of dishwashers and their concern about increased fungus-human interactions.
I realized that I had not uploaded any pics. In case someone else should have the same problem.
Remove all the shelves/trays/baskets, including in the icemaker.
I had to remove the freezer door (the screws that go into the door itself, 5 on each side, although we have holes for 6 on each side.).
Then the icemaker wall or separator. Just lift at the bottom to pop out the tabs and slide the bottom to the right.
Then the two white bars that the separator's tabs were in.
Then the icemaker itself. And the screw in the back holding the left side of the evap fan cover to the back wall.
Remove the other vent cover beneath the evap fan cover. It is wide. Just pull from the center and slightly downward then pull it straigth toward yourself.
The bottom is held in with 3 tabs that catch only when it is bent into place.
Then the evap fan cover has one tab by the screw and two more tabs at the right. The two at the bottom of the evap fan cover go pretty much straight in so there is no maneuvering for those.
Then the screws behind the evap fan cover that help brace the fan itself.
Then you should be able to pop the back wall out, but look around in case I forgot someting.
Just remembered you might have to extend out the drawer rails on the right side of the freezer. They got in the way for me.
You'll see two white plastic screws coming out of and pointing up from the two vents BELOW the evap fan cover, one each vent. Don't touch those, they just help hold stuff (insulation) to the other side.
Once you remove the back wall, you can remove two more screws for the fan that hold it in and remove the plastic tie that holds several wires including the fan wires, in place (in the left upper corner)
The tie has a whole in it for screwing into the back wall and had no idea where to get another like it. So, I just used a small screwdriver to slide it out from itself and then reused it.
OK. Now replace your fan and do everything in reverse! (Oh! Joy!)
