The how to video told me what to check to determine what part was probably broken. Then another video showed me how to take it apart. It gave me the name, number, and a photo of the part. I ordered it from Part Select without even checking with another retailer since they gave me the information to do it myself, saving me lots of $ for repair labor costs! Then I watched the repair video again and put it back together! It works! It was simple and I really appreciate this service! Thank You

Unplugged the refrigerator then removed two vertical screws on the very back back of the control panel (the ones with the washers). Do not remove the four other vertical screws in the panel. The front plastic plate on control panel snaps off and there are two horizontal screws under the plate. Remove them and the control panel will drop down allowing access to the light switch. Unplug the two wires (one black and one white) from the old switch. Discard the old switch, snap the new one into place and reconnect the two wires. Snap the front plastic plate back into place, plug in the refrigerator and you are done! Problem solved with a new $16.00 switch and saved at least $75.00 or more from an appliance repair call. Thanks Part Select!

On the left side I unscrewed the screw and replace it with a new one . The right side in had to take s file and file of the rivet. You can use a rivet gun or a metal screw to replaced the clip. Once it is finish open the refrigerator door to see how to line the kick plate into the clip. A piece of cake.

I followed directions to take off the front of the water and ice maker then I saw the switch but I found out the plastic piece that held it in place was broke. I didn't order a new piece I used my reliable super duper quick glue and put the broken pieces to geter then put switch in place. then volla I had the water running like it did before. Thank you for telling me how to get the front off. That was the life saver.

I ordered a new micro switch to do the repair. When I took face plate off the front of door two pieces of broken plastic fell out. Those pieces were part of what holds the switch in place, I need to order that part but I was able to use small tie wraps to hold switch in place and it has been working for a week now. The videos on this site are very helpful and gave me confidence to do the repair.

This was not a through the door unit. The water dispenser is located inside the refrigerator. Unplug the refrigerator. Remove the two screws holding the cover over the dispenser parts. Could not remove the cover completely as there is a water supply line attached. Let the front of the cover down as far as you can get it. The micro switch is reachable. Move plastic retaining posts holding the switch in place, to the side to release the switch. This can be done with your fingers. Pop the switch out. Use the blade of the screw driver to gently pry the electrical connection plug away from the switch. Attach the new switch to the plug and put everything back in the reverse order of disassembly. Done, easy, even I could do it.

Ice would not dispense through front of door. There was no sound when the lever was pushed either, however, the water dispenser next to it worked fine.

Remove drip tray, remove two screws under drip tray and remove trim piece around dispensers. The micro switch is located at top right corner; slide it off the small post that holds it in place. Remove wire from switch (be gentle so you don't break wire, mine was on pretty tight. My switch was clearly burned out (black on connections). Anyway, just click wire back on new switch and push back on the post that holds it in place. Put back trim, screws and drip tray. The whole thing took a few minutes....I am no repair man but there were two switches on the post next to one another, I imagine the other controls the water dispenser in the event it had the same problem? If I had removed the trim piece and looked before ordering the part I probably would have swapped them out to confirm the problem was definitely the switch...I assume you could do that because they appear identical but can't say for sure. However, all indicators pointed to the switch anyway. Part was inexpensive and Part Select got it right out to me.

Used flat blade screwdriver to remove old guide by spreading the remaining top tabs. Inserted new guide and tipped the top forward to line up bottom tab in slot. Used screwdriver to push in tab. Once it was seated pressing in the top snapped the guide into place easily.

Just remove old one which was really easy since it was practically falling off and replace with new one. It is a bit tricky because you are afraid of breaking the new one. Watch the video and you will be more confident. I was REALLY impressed with the shipping. I ordered on Monday afternoon and when I returned home Tuesday afternoon it was waiting for me on my porch , and this was the week between Christmas and New Year when everyone was fussing about not receiving packages. NOT ME!
