We are happy to announce this new version of the ICE ZAPPER the ICE ZAPPER 2, this new model is "Always On!" Tested in cold Minnesota winters, the Ice Zapper 2 effectively clears snow and ice so you don't have to.

Different from the Original Ice Zapper in that it does not use a thermostat sensor; just plug it in when you need to clear your dish then unplug it when it's done the job. Works on all smaller dishes - 18" to 40" metal satellite dishes and is simple to install installs on the back of your dish in minutes. Quality built in the U.S.A. and backed by a one year warranty. And because it mounts to the back of your dish, it won't interfere with your signal. Easy to use simply plug it in when you need it.

This model seems to work a bit better than the thermostat model on the bigger dish antenna system. One of the most universal and easiest to install dish heaters on the market! The ICE ZAPPER 2 contains 2 heating elements that provide heat to keep snow and ice from gathering on the dish!


  • Works better than the thermostat one on bigger dish antenna systems.
  • Designed for 18" to 39" metal satellite dishes.
  • Works on "Metal Dishes ONLY"

Installation and use of Ice Zapper® satellite Dish Heater 
Step 1
Lay out the Ice Zapper® to check for placement before affixing to dish. 

Step 2
IMPORTANT: Thoroughly clean the surface of the dish with alcohol where the Ice Zapper® will be installed. 

Step 3
Carefully peel off the protective slip sheet from the pressure sensitive adhesive on the Ice Zapper®. Apply the two heater patches on either side of the mounting bracket and press firmly into place. 

While the Ice Zapper® can be applied in cold weather, the first time the dish is warmed from either the sun or the heater itself, you will need to reapply pressure and smooth the surfaces. 

The unit is fully operational once installed. When plugged in, the Ice Zapper® sensor automatically turns the unit on at 35° and off at 55°. (Temperatures are approximate.)

Make sure your heater is plugged into an outlet approved for outdoor use. Do not plug in until the heater has been installed on your dish.
