The defrost heater keeps the cooling coils from frosting over. The heater will get hot and melt any ice or frost build up around the coils.
This part works with the following brands: GE, Hotpoint & Kenmore.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
Replaced these parts and didn't fix the problem. Had to replace the temperature sensor. The fix could have been a $10 rather than $160, but I didn't know how to test the components individually. But it is fixed now!The board and heater plug right in. For the Defrost Thermostat (or thermistor?) I had to cut 2 wires, crimp the new wires to the old ones and seal up. Then attach to evaporator. Thanks for the help this site provided.

Coils in freezer side freezing up causing the fridge to stay too warm. After changing out the temp sensor and the defrost thermostat it still froze up in about a week. Changed the defrost heater and its been working good now for a month. The defrost heater clips on to the bottom of the coils in the freezer side,two wires and boom done.
The repair was easy using the step by step videos available through Partselect. Thank you!
