Hello, I recently purchased a replacement defrost heater, part WR51X442 (also AP2071464), part 230 in the diagram for freezer section 04. The new one was actually 2 bracket heaters. It came with a piece of paper that said "You must install 2 even if only 1 heater is bad, or it will quickly burn out." The problem is, I only have 1 heater! I had a.p.p. chat help verify I got the right part--it does replace an older model--but for the life of me I cannot find the second heater, and if I follow all the wiring it comes up from the 1 heater to the harness that includes the thermostat. Seems like there really is only 1. I could jury rig the heater in there somehow, I suppose; any ideas on what I'm doing wrong or what I could do? Thank you

I had frost build up in the freezer section on the back wall. Neither side was cooling as it should. I first replaced the defrost timer, that did not work. I replaced the defrost thermostat, that did not work. Do you think I need new heaters?

My GE side by side has a bad defrost heater. It appears to have two of them. I'm guessing I have to buy the set, with two plus the wiring harness. I tried to undo the bad one on the ends, but the connectors appear to be glued.

I think I have replaced the heaters in this unit five times over the years. Bought the unit new and had the first set replaced under warranty. Before I replace them again, I want to ask if there is a heavier duty part, or do you think I may have another problem to look at? Thanks! Bob
