Previewed the videos supplied by PartSelect first. Followed the directions to remove the control panel that contained both the old switch and the old actuator pad. Removed old switch and old actuator pad. Then spent about 45 minutes cleaning lime deposits on wate tube and around ice-maker chute. Our unit was nearly 4 years old. Used a tooth brush, white vinegar, and elbow grease to remove the lime buildup. Then put in new switch and new actuator pad; and reassembled panels back into door. Total time about 75 minutes.
