Yesterday, I took my air compressor and blew everything out from underneath and around everything. Also took off the drain tube and checked for clogs, after putting hot salt water down it. Anything else I should be doing?

Is this item hard to replace?
Piece of pie, comrade! According to TAAMI, this repair rates a single mug on the SUDs-o-meter. Buy the kit that I linked you to in my previous post and it's a drop-in replacement-- just copy the existing wiring.
Unplug the fridge before commencing surgery.
