our light quick working in the fridge, but the light in the freezer worked. it was a little tricky to replace the switch. UNPLUG FRIDGE FIRST. then pry out the old one with a small flat screwdriver being very careful not to mar the fridge. the light switch didn't fix it, but we kept it in case the old one breaks. the problem was the light socket (only $4 vs. $20+ for the light switch). we had to order the socket from another site since it was no longer available on this site. the meat drawer rail was super easy. removed screws holding broken rail, then screwed new rail in. the water dispenser actuator was a little tricky. you need small fingers so you don't drop all the little parts. we removed the drip pan, unscrewed the panel, unscrewed the plates holding the broken actuator--BE CAREFUL NOT TO LOSE THE PLATES, SCREWS OR SPRING AND NOTE WHERE THE SPRING GOES--then put it all back together.
