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!!

Removed all screws from the outside case, then I had access to the motor. Removed 4 screws from the bracket holding the motor assembly in place, removed it from the case. Next I pulled off the broken fan part, installed the new blade and secured it with the supplied bracket. Next I installed the motor assembly in reverse with the 4 screws I removed earlier. I made sure the blade would move freely, no wire in the way. Also, when you remove the motor assembly you will have to remove the motor wires from their attachment points, but is easy, they are just "plugged" in. In any case I recommend you make a small drawing/schematic as to where the wires go for proper hookup later. The last thing is to put the case cover back on, line up the holes and insert the screws you removed earlier. The unit has been running like new now!!
