Yes, I don't change the evaporator just for a bad heater. Why turn a $100 job into a $600 job if it's not necessary. I've only run into one bad Samsung heater. I don't remember the model number but I was only able to get the defrost heater with the evaporator. It was fairly easy to remove the heater from the new evaporator and install it on the old evaporator. I broke the copper stubs off of the new evaporator and put it in with my cans for recycling.
