Thank you for your question. The information you received from Priscilla is good even though it's for a different model. The extra wire in this case is just for testing at the factory. If you have verified there is 120 volts going to the element but it won't heat, the element will need to be replaced. Another check to verify for sure would be to, advance the timer into a defrost cycle, by turning the dial on the timer, until the unit stops running. Now disconnect power to the unit. Now, connect the wires on the defrost thermostat together and reconnect the power. If the element was not heating before but now it does heat, the thermostat would need to be replaced. I'm also attaching the wiring diagram below. I hope this will help you. If you would like more assistance, reply to this thread and I will be glad to assist you further.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Safety Notice: Be sure to disconnect the appliance before performing any troubleshooting procedures. If you are not comfortable with doing any voltage checks or repairs that might be recommended, please contact a local service provider for repairs.
