Ok so a few months ago I was having trouble with the fridge not defrosting . Did some checking on the internet and ordered a new defrost timer and heater. The timer went in fine but the heater was different as it had two elements instead of one . I took one element out and put it in the old housing then put the frig back together . Heater burned out again ! I can hear the timer running all the time in the fridge and it has gone thought both elements from the new heater !!?????????? Scratching my head .........

The correct heater for this is AP2071523, single 115 volt heater with defrost thermostat. You wired in a 58 volt heater that promptly blew out.
