touch your 2 leads together and note the reading. That is continuity. check the glass heater tubes in the same manor.

No reading through the element.   
Looks like I should replace it.


GE Defrost Heater Kit Part # WR51X10101 


From what I've read, I should replace the thermistor at the same time?

everything is kinda difficult to get to so it's best to change it while in there.

You can easily test the thermister with your OHM meter, either where it unplugs, or from the main board harness.  The tech sheet has the specs.

Hello,
I'm having the same problem finding the "HOLD" button to initiate diagnostics! It enters the modes exactly as described in the manual (and this post), however there is no way to initiate the tests (that I can find) and the system times out and goes back into regular operating mode after a minute or so. Any help would greatly be appreciated!!!!
Regards!
Nugget
