Here's a pic after half an hour.  Where is the heater assembly located?  To the left side?  Probably one of those wrapped up tubes?

Let her sit overnight and all the frost is gone.

Checked this piece and it looks fine:


I couldn't exactly see the defrost timer, but I'm assuming the knob is sticking out in the pic below above the light bulb and to the right.  I turned it and it went clickclickclickclickclickCLICKclickclickclickclickclickCLICK.   Checked the freezer for a glow/heat/dripping water and see/hear nothing. (perhaps cuz I already left her unplugged all night and there's nothing left to defrost?  I do hear what i think is the defrost timer turning itself.

I've got a multimeter.  Should I use it to test anything?

About 15 minutes later and I hear the fan in the freezer just turned back on.  I also see some very light frost forming.
