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.

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.

After plugging in the new relay to no avail. I replaced the thermostat. That fixed the problem.

Broken pantry cover hinge; broken rail on crisper drawer.

  • Customer: Elizabeth from Yardley PA
  • Difficulty: Easy

The parts arrived as expected, and well packed. Replacing the crisper drawer was, obviously, easy--just switch the food over and slide it in. The pantry end cap had a broken peg on the hinge cover, so wouldn't open properly without falling off. It was a little more involved, with a total of 5 screws, but I followed the instructions and video already posted on this website, and had no trouble! Gave me a good excuse to wipe down the inside of the fridge. Both repairs plus the cleaning took me about 25 minutes.
