disconnected el. power to fridge. pried out broken switch with small screwdriner and pulled out w/water pump pliers. installed new switch and pressed into opening.

Fan blade had a broken blade. Did it ever make a lot of noise when running as the broken blade cased the whole freezer to vibrate.

Removed panel and replaced the fan and clip when it arrived from PartSelect. The job was not big but having a part outlet with the item in stock was a real joy. In a few days we were back with a silent running freezer. So quiet now that I have to open the door to confirm that it is still running. Thanks Part Select. Bryan L. Huth

This is an easy fix, simply remove and replace. What I was impressed with is that a how to video was provided along with my part. I wish all manufactures would offer this, the video was easy to understand and you had a good view of the operation. Thanks, a job well done.

At first I went to a local part supplier and they didn't have it in stock but could order it for me for $55.00 plus $10.00 to ship it. I told them I would have to think about it. I went home and got on the computer and found your web site and was I shocked when I saw the same part listed for $6.98 and $7.00 to ship it. You guys saved me $50.00. The part arrived in two day and took 5 min. to install. I now have light in my refrigerator. Thank you.

I had the best luck using pliers to remove the hex top screws. Once the screws were removed I unplugged the old defrost timer and plugged in the new one. Replaced the screws and the freezer worked when plugged in.
