The knob one turns to set the humidity level was removed. The two screws holding the top on were removed. The top was lifted and swung to the side. After noting which of the two wires went where on the humidistat the wires were removed. Small flat screwdrivers were used to pry back the plastic retainers on one side of the original failed humidistat. The new one was put in place, the two wires were reattached. The knob was replaced. The top was positioned and its two retaining screws replaced. A magnetic Phillips screwdriver was handy but not necessary. PIECE OF CAKE! Someone with ten thumbs could do it!! Thanks for the prompt courteous attention to the returned erroneous part! Dealing with PartSelect.com was a pleasure...... THANKS!! P. S. The dehumidifier works like new now!!

I ordered the part and, unfortunately, it was the wrong part and did not fit so I had to modify it to make it fit and finally installed it. The good news is that it works.

Push on connectors and switch housing were different

  • Customer: Lester from Brazil IN
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

The switch housing was not exactly the same for easy snap in. I removed the actual switch and installed it into the old housing. Then I found that the male pins were larger than the old ones. I chose to clip off the female connectores, strip the wires, and solder the wires to the pins on the switch. It was easier for me than attempting to change the push on connectors. For me, the actual switch was what I wanted and I fixed it my way. It was easy to do however some folks may want to change the push on connectors. Works great and saved me hundreds of dollars. Thanks.
