So I pulled out the heater and derost thermostat. The heater tests fine closed on its own, but the thermostat doesnt read closed when its been sitting in a glass of crushed ice. Does this mean the thermostat is bad? If so can I just get a thermostat with out ordering the heating element?
ANSWER Hello Eric. Yes, if the thermostat reads open and it is cold enough, you will need to replace the heater and thermostat kit 61006199.
