I have heater kit wr49x10173 installed to fix frozen water line. I installed it several days ago per the directions (wires 2 and 6) but no heat. I put a meter on those wires today and there's no voltage on those wires. I have 13.5 volts on pins 2 or 6 to 1 or 3. I can't find a wiring diagram for this unit but suspect the directions are wrong for my fridge.
ANSWER Hello Dan,
Based on your model number the wires should connect to pins 2 and 6. Double check to make sure that the wire clip connected to the wires properly. If you have 4 wires on your model then they would go on the red wire and white wire.
