I snapped the cover plate to the filter open. Pulled the filter down and twisted counter clock wise to take filter out. I installed the new filter in by inserting the filter and tuning clock wise to secure the filter. I flushed the water for about two minutes and then allowed it to be put back into service.

Went on the internet to find someone else with the same problem. I have over 30 Years of Heavy Industrial Air Cond and Refrigeration experience. The troubleshooting was no problem to find the the Control Board failure. Just didn't want to spend $300.00 on the control board on a 3 yr old Stainless Steel side be side Refrigerator. Then we had to wait 6 days for the darn part to arrive. The real difficulty was finding out we had to reprogram the new control board. No directions to reprogram main Control Board came with the part. Also we could not find the original owners manual. (Put up so we could find it later--Right). Had to go to the internet and Google to find the instructions to program the new Control Board. With the CODE #. What a mess.... But we now have cold Ice Cream and Momma is happy.

Pried out the old switch with small screwdriver, popped in the new one and tah-dah!! ..the light came on. While I was at it, I cleaned out the freezer :). I cannot begin to imagine what a repairman would have charged for this.

My husband had to do this before (bad refrigerator design), so he methodically removed the assembly, replaced the part and replaced all pieces.

I order a bare crisper frame, no glass, no slider controls. The old frame lifted out easily. I did not realize the glass top is not glued in, because food drippings had it somewhat stuck in place. But only somewhat - I almost dropped the glass when I turned the frame over. Once the glass was out, I removed the humidity sliders by gently lifting one end so I could slide them to a place where they lifted off. (Look for the notch-outs.) Then I put the parts in the new frame and put it back in the frig.

Ice mold was leaking causing all the ice to freeze into one chunk.

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Socket set

Got the main bolts off and unplugged and removed the ice maker. Had to remove all parts and rebuild it on the new mold. Was more complex than I thought but was able to get it done. Note where everything was as you take it off and you'll do fine.

The replacement itself was as easy as it gets. What made it harder was the need to remove the white plastic cover from the old drawer. Although some said it was easy, ours was a bit of a challenge. The video was helpful, in letting us know to start at the bottom when removing the cover. After that, pretty easy. No tools required.

I pulled down the wire around the glass cover...released on end of the wire from its holder being careful to not let the glass cover drop. Unscrewed the bulb and replaced with replacement. Easy, easy.

Unplugged appliance. Using a small putty knife I moved the switch out far enough to grab it with pliers. Moved wiring to new switch and pushed into place after testing.
