I have water leaking from the freezer side onto the floor. I didn't see a drain pan that I can pull out. I have a dual defrost heater and one tube has gone out. The bottom is freezing up on freezer side when I pulled panel off coils were somewhat frozen but not solid. I replaced defrost heater about 3 years ago.

I have a 18 cft refeg. GE model # GTS18WCMDRWW and I have a bad defrost heater part number WR51X10031; I have taken it apart a couple of times and use a hair dryer to defrost it and notice that the heater wire in the glass tube is broken and is lose on one end, so I believe that the heater is bad. When I put in the defrost heater part number in your system, assembly number AP2071523 comes up and it looks like what I have, but when I used you cross reference tool with my refeg model the system says the part is not compatible. Is that because my ref. is so old and not in your system? Will the heater assembly P/N AP2071523 work on my ref. P/N GTS18WCMDRWW. Thanks for your help, Jim

I believe the defrost heater for the auto defrost has gone bad and I'm having trouble finding the right part for replacement for that model. There are a number of items that appear to come close but I wanted to get the exact item number to make sure of proper replacement. Thank you in advance for your response.

My Kenmore Refrigerator iced up on me on the fresh food side one week the next week it warmed up and wouldn't keep food cold. Is this a defrost problem? Can I tell without a continuity check if the Defrost Heater Assembly is bad just by looking at it? The glass tube is not transparent anymore and very dark in appearence.
