The old defroster heater was dislodged and damaged in a move that took 2 days. I purchased new heater and clips online and have them. Where is the installation location? Is there a diagram of the heater installed somewhere?

ANSWER Joe, It's not a real big deal, just be careful when working around the evaporator, the coil fins are real sharp. Here's some help " Replacing The Radiant Heater 1. Disconnect the unit from the power source. 2. Remove the ice maker if equipped and shelves as needed. 3. Remove the evaporator cover by removing the four(4) corner mounting screws. 4. Tilt the top of the evaporator cover forward and disconnect the wire harness connector. 5. Remove the evaporator cover and fan motor assembly. It is very important that this part be reinstalled in the same manner as it was originally. 6. Disconnect the radiant heater wire leads. Using long nose pliers, remove the defrost heater retainer clips. (one on the right side of the heater and one on the left side). 7. Remove the heater and the shield.(Note, the placement and orientation of the shield, it goes between the heater and the Evaporator Cover.) 8. Install the replacement heater in the reverse order of removal. NOTE: When installing the replacement heater, do not touch the glass. Salt from finger tips could cause damage." We're sure you'll do fine without pictures, our space is limited and we can't attach and send certain diagrams. Thanks and Good Luck
