I used a flat-head screwdriver to pop out the old light rocker switch. Then, I unplugged the wires, plugged them into the new light rocker switch, and then popped the new switch into the hole. That's it! Lights began working again.

The light switch on the refridgerator broke - no light.

Once I saw the replacement part I understood how to pry out the switch with a small screwdriver. Then just unplug the old one, plug in the new one and pop it into place.

The PartSelect site made it easy to correctly identify the correct part, it was inexpensive, and the shipping was fast.

I'm very pleased!

Water began to leak under the refrigerator. Source looked like it was coming from control valve suppling water to ice maker and water dispenser.

Followed instructions supplied. It was relatively easy and the parts fit exactly right. Sears wanted twice as much for the part and service would have charged me another $100 to come to my home. I saved over $100 doing the project myself.

Icemaker would not make ice. Diagnosed problem as being the cutter which was not cutting the ice thereby causing the machine to cycle draining the water receptacle.

Removed two thumb screws holding old cutter in place, Replaced old cutter with replacement part the same way I removed the old cutter. Problem solved.

Ice machine grid cutter had failed. All necessary was to pull old one and replace with new one. Hardest part was to remove the cover face plate on the front of grid cutter. The rest was a piece of cake. Now my ice machine works perfect and produces a ton of ice quickly and nicely.

I removed the two wing nut type screws and pulled grid cutter out and then disconnected both the electrical power plug and the light power plug. Then I removed the front face plate and put it on the new grid cutter after cleaning and re-inserted the new grid cutter into ice machine along with re-connecting the electrical and tighten wing screws and then turned the ice machine to on and within approx. 2-3 hours, we had ice. Very simple to do and machine works perfect now. Just like new.

Just replaced the switch, but unfortunately that was not the problem; nor was it the bulb....so I am back to square one.
But Parts Select is a great place to order from. Thank you.

I simply removed the old switch using 2 small screwdrivers and the old switch case popped out. I then upluged the wires from the old switch and reversed the process. Didn't take longer than 5 minutes begining to end! Thank you for the great service!

Ice wouldn't melt into the small squares

At the top of the unit is the grid-cutter, to remove, I unscrewed the two turn screws (usually can do by hand but mine were a little tight so I used pliers to turn them). I slid the unit out and disconnected the power supply and light switch. I removed the plastic cover on the front and put it on the new grid cutter, lining up the light between the plastic and the edge of the grid. Slid the cover back on and then slide the grid cutter back into place. Hand turning the two screws and it was making ice in no time.
I saved more than $200 doing it myself!!!

The repair was a breeze, but finding the part on line was very difficult. You do not list Marvel as a brand. I was told when I bought the ice maker that it was the same as Kitchen Aid only $100.00 less. NOw I need an ice retainer baffle and I cannot find that at your web site

Referencing the info/schematics you have on your website, I unscrewed/unattached top-front panel (carefully), from behind the panel you have to detach the wires (2) from the switch, pushed "in" the switch to remove, put in new switch and attach wires to test BEFORE remounting panel. Tada!! Thank you PartSelect! You saved me at least $80...would have been at least $100 to have a repair person come to the house!

Pried out old part with screwdriver. Unplugged. When new part came, just plugged it in and pushed the part into place.

Light switch wasn't working.. As I would close the door I would notice our frig light wasn't going off...

I simply removed the old switch by gently pulling down on the old switch with a screwdriver. When it was about half way out I just gently pulled down on the old switch and it popped out... I removed the two connectors attached to the old switch by pulling on the connectors with a pliers...I tried using my fingers but wasn't able to pull the connectors off so I used pliers. It worked perfectly.. When pulling off the old connectors, make sure you attach the new switch to the same tabs on the new switch... It was very easy to do and took under 5 mins.....The light switch works perfect....P.S. You should unplug the frig while making the connection just in case....Safety first....!!!
