Side by side refrigerator/ freezer, took out the racks, took off back panel, element was in pieces so it was easy to identify the problem.Took in for granted that that was the only problem. Ordered the part from Part Select, it came in 4 days, in the mean time I just used the freezer as is it worked fine after I thawed out the evaporator, Poured a little water and used a hair dryer to defrost 30 minutes, Was starting to fail by the time I installed the new defrost heater . I bought an inexpensive BD electric screwdriver ( $19.99) to re install the shelving worth every penny, working great so far , Wife is Happy!
