This unit is showing a defrost heater and there should be one there unless somebody's taking it out. I have seen on more than one occasion both of these thermostats being bad I would suggest replacing both of them. You can probably get by with replacing them with a L55- or 60 degree. However one of them may be 140 degree. I try to stay  as close as possible to original  specifications. They are usually visibly faulty. You can tell how they have separated the metal from the plastic. I see it all the time. This must be an oddball as I see there are many parts that are out of stock.
