If you look closely at the chiller 'tab', you can see the slightly wavy areas where it was bent to form a wide 'u' shape. Let everything get warm and make sure all retention points are unscrewed/removed. Slowly bend the plate into a flat shape (or as flat as you can get it). I left the thermostat in the fridge because I may re-use it as a regular fridge or turn it into a ferm chamber when I build a keezer.
