Where is the evaorator heater located? I have the evaporator cover removed.
Answer Hello Dave,
The defrost heater 12049801 is mounted to the bottom of the evaporator coils in the freezer compartment. It's at the bottom of the evaporator and can be identified as the black thing that looks like an oven bake element, (calrod material). Two wires come out at the top of the evaporator coils to hook it up. It also hooks up in series with the defrost thermostat. If you look at our parts explosion page, it's in the section marked "drain, rollers, and evap assy". Scroll to the bottom of the page and see image 3.
