How about....

A small crack or leak in the glass tube allowing water to get in. Then you get a short when it goes into defrost.and you trip the GFI.

I'm amazed that these glass heaters last. They tell you not to get finger prints, skin oil, or any grease on them, or it can ruin the heater. If it's that fragile, how's it going to take the ice and cold water dropping on it when it's red hot?

It's funny, all this writing, and if we were there it would be a quick and easy call.

...I agree about the stupid design of these heaters. As for the service call, I see you're in Detroit. I'm in New Jersey. Unfortunately, there are not to many competant service people who will come at the drop of a hat. If I had one, I'd treat him like gold. They're hard to find.

Thanks again. BTW, I hope it was the ice and not a crack in the heater glass. I'd hate to have to take the frig apart again for the third time!!
