On arrival, I remove the glass shelf carefully from the box. I cleaned it with soap and water. Placed it where the old one use to be. It fits like a glove. It was easy as pie to order and replace. Thank You.

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....!!!

I replaced the broken end caps by inserting the new ones into the ends of the retaining bar and then inserted the entire piece into the slots of the refrigerator where the bars were missing because the end caps weren't holding the retaining bar and I had to place them in a safe place outside of the refrigerator. Too easy. I'm just glad it was such an easy fix. I'm thankful for this site, the value was great, service quick and my life is now a little easier.

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!

I unplugged the fridge. I removed the back panel. Took apart the fan motor housing unhooked the wire harness. Then reassembled the new motor to the housing rehooked the harness. I put the back panel back together and replugged in the fridge and the fan came right on.

The clips on the part had broken off. As a result the bar was not held in place.

New knob fit right in.

Identifying the part on the parts diagram took the longest. Finding the screw driver bit that would remove the old screw that held the original shelf support took longer than the actual repair.

  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

Once I identified the bit that would remove the screw, the rest of the repair took 5 minutes. I removed the screw and discarded the remains of the original but now broken shelf support. With the same screw I simply attached the new shelf support that I received from PartSelect.com. End of story.

The bottom brackets on the inner door were missing.

Oops! While cleaning this in the sink, I shattered the glass shelf. It was so easy to order the piece and it came in record time! Out of the box, quick wipe down and into the fridge. Couldn't have been easier.
