SOURCE: Bad thermistor easy to replace?
It is not "easy" but it is not rocket science either. You will have to have the unit pulled out from where it is installed to have access to the back of the unit to replace the thermsitor correctly (it feeds to the back through a hole in the upper right (as seen from the front) and follows the refrigerant tubing to the mechanical area where it connects to the control board on terminal #s 4 and 5. The thermistor itself is connected the the back of the evaporator plate. Depending on what year (and how accurate the assembly was) it should be on the right wing. Sometimes it was connected to the upper middle section of the evaporator plate like it is on the 6CAR. The repair can be done with common hand tools by someone who is average to above average handy. When you order the part, it should come with instructions.
There is short-cut for those units that are hard to remove from where they are installed but should only be used as a last resort since it requires cutting and splicing the thermsitor leads which if not done with care can lead to accelerated failure of the new thermsitor and/or control box.
