I couldn't have repaired the refridgerator at all if your web site didn't have photos along side of the parts. My parts no. was destroyed. But after removing the face plate on the ice dispenser door and checking the area behind the plate, the burned part was clearly identifiable. I removed the one screw holding it and the two connecting wires - and pulled out the tiny switch. On your site, I entered the refridgerator number, and the parts list (300 or so parts for this model) appeared with identifying photos of each part. All it took was to order the part (and the ice door simply because it was old) and put it in when it arrived in one day! No only did I save much cash, but I left with the confidence that I knew what went wrong. It works as good as new now. Thanks!!!!!
