I have changed the defrost timer. How do I test the heater?
Answer Hello Kent. You can test the heater with a multi-meter TJMA-DM1. It should read closed for continuity. You can also test the defrost thermostat the same way. Hope this helps.

Do you have a video on how to replace it?
Answer Hello Roger. Sorry, we do not have one at this time. We are working daily at adding new videos to our website. Thanks.
I want to order this part but the replacement has what looks like two plugs on each end. My fridge only has one on each end. Is there a conversion kit or something? I need this part because my freezer keeps over frosting.
Answer Dale, the part listed may be a manufacturer replacement. The single defrost heaters have recently been replacement with a double heater. To verify that this is the correct replacement listed for your appliance we'll need your model number. Please obtain this information and repost for further assistance. Thanks!
This replacement defrost heater has two elements instead of one. Does it have two plug in connectors on each side like it looks like in the picture, because my fridge has only one plug on each side
Answer Dale, Yes, the heater assembly has all the connections and jumper wires needed to install the dual heater kit in your refrigerator. The heater kit also has instruction sheets to inform you of the proper wiring and attachments. Make sure you remove power to the refrigerator, and follow the instructions and you won't have any issues.
I have a GE side by side refrigerator model# gss22sgpass. the freezer part wants to freeze up and the freezer is not cold and the refrigerator part is not cold. Can you please tell me what the problem is? Thank you
Answer Hello Sasha,
This is most likely the defrost heater WR51X10101. It could also be the main board WR55X10942, the defrost thermostat WR50X10068, or the temperature sensor WR55X10025. There are two of the last in the freezer compartment. The one that normally gives a defrost issue is mounted to the top of the evaporator coils.
