Did you replace the defrost thermostat as well? Replace this part if you have not and if it still doesn't work you probably need a new motherboard.

I checked the OHMs on the defrost heater and the meter showed .21 - .23. Would a bad thermostat cause the new heater to burn out?

A bad thermostat would only fail to heat up the element

You should have low resistance on the heater if the reading was infinate (open) it would be burned out.
