If you saw the glow on and unplugged the unit for 12 hours and then plugged back in and the heater was still on then no that is not normal and like he said if you see that glow when the compressor is on it is not normal.

If the glow is coming on when the compressor is on most likely the defrost timer is bad.

If the glow is on and the temperature at the coils is over 60 degrees the defrost thermostat is bad (which you changed with the heater).

However if you just look into the freezer and see the glow, the compressor is off, and everything seems to be cold/frozen it is normal.
