I did find this heater that appears to be close in size at ~27" wide. It is flat though like most other defrost heaters used these days.

Dan, I was looking at that model before I found one that appears to be an exact fit. Correct Dimensions and even the slight bend but the number on the box is different, (Genuine OEM Whirlpool Refrigerator Defrost Heater 458732) It should be here this weekend. I'll post how it goes. Thanks for all the help!

Well, the new Defrost Heater arrived today it is New old stock, the E-bay seller had it listed under the wrong number (458732) but handwritten in ink on the same label is #97832.
$45.00 including shipping. That is lucky. Thank s for All the Help!

It is not the wrong number. It is just another company's number for a universal heater that replaces that original Whirlpool part. It is another version of #'s GH414, SH14, etc. It is not an OEM part as advertised but is likely just as good. There isn't a lot to go wrong with them.

I considered that might the case, I just need to nurse this old fridge a little longer to get past an ongoing house remodel then it will be replaced!
Thank you again for all the help!
