I started removing the switch by prying on the right side with a screwdriver, when it emerged enough I used pliers to finish removing it. I then unpluged rhe wires from the bad switch and pluged them on the new switch and "poped" it into the hole.

Gently pry out switch in door jam with screwdriver and pull both connectors off and put connectors on new switch then push switch back into the hole. Looked it up on the internet and video showed how to and also had link to new part, ordered and less than a week later the fridge is bright again. I have an older freezer also and it seems that they all use the same switches. Very Very easy

Just as your video described, although due to the age of the fridge, it took a bit longer to remove the defective switch. Your video made this so simple, I can't imagine why we lived with a dark fridge for so long! I was ready to buy a whole new fridge, as repairmen are often nonexistent for small repairs. I am the biggest fan of your company & it's repair video. THANK YOU SO MUCH

I removed the front of the unit assembly and removed the entire auger unit and drive assembly. I married the old drive cup and new drive cup back to back using vise grip pliers, drilled 4 3mm holes, installed 4 phillips head stainless steel screws and, using an emory wheel, ground off the exposed screw ends. I then re-installed the drive assembly and auger unit. This increased the length of the drive cup allowing the drive to fit without any slippage. The entire cost was less than $18.00 including shipping and screws and took about 1 hour. It works great.

Watched your video a couple of times, just to be sure I had the sequence down pat. The repair followed the video exactly and was completed in about 12-minutes. I was a bit leary whether I would be able to handle the door weight and alignment but it all went into place without any problems.

This job would have gone a lot faster if my father, Daniel Stewart would have let me replace it. He has trouble seeing and moves very slow. However, I have learned to be very, very patient. LOL!! One thing, I only ordered 1 because we thought that was all that was needed. It required two. Both were worn out. I do not have the model number off hand, it is a side by side, 16 years old.

I ordered a cam riser for the refrigerator door. I watched the "how to" video the day I ordered the part. It took about a week to get the part, but I was ready when it arrived. The 'how to' video was a big help. It showed me how to take off the door and replace the part. The process was quite simple! Oh! Don't forget to turn the refrigerator on again!

Door didn't shut cleaning, by itself

I watched the video online, and said, "hey, I can do that." And yep, I did. I'm pretty comfortable with handyman work - but had never tackled a frig door before. The door closing cam that had completely come apart turned out to be straight forward to fix with the replacement part.

Freezer door would not close properly

Using the #2 Phillips screwdriver I removed the top hinge cover from the top of the freezer door. Next I used the 5/16 nut driver to remove the 2 bolts holding the top hinge in place. Once it was removed I was able to lift the door off the bottom hinge. Placing the door on a flat work surface I loosened the bottom bolt holding the cam in place. I next removed the bolt holding the hinge in place. I was then able to remove the broken cam and replace it with the new one. I then replaced the bottom bolt making sure the hole for the cam and the hole for the hinge are lined up. I then tightened the bottom hinge bolts. I carefully placed the door back on the bottom hinge and put the top hinge back on.

Refrigerator door didn't close without a big push.

Took door off. Replaced two cams at bottom of door, referencing those on the bottom of the freezer door. Also followed a video on the net. Worked like a jewel!
