How do I tell if the defrost element is bad. I put an ohm meter on it today and got 28 for a reading. I've never done this repair before so I don't know what the correct reading should be. It seem's that this is high, judging from what I know about other electrical repairs.

Here are your parts.

28 ohms is correct.
The heater is about 450 watts so the math works out.

Also check your defrost thermostat (item 35 in Section 2). It should be 0 ohms when frozen.
Note that is opens at 47 degrees F.
Also if it is deformed/bulged replace it even if it does measure OK.
