The bent hinge caused a bad seal which let in air into the freezer, so there was a ton of frost build up. I ordered the parts, and they came in 2 days! I figured what tools I needed, got my wife to help hold things, and in 20 minutes it was like new.

We looked and looked for bins for the door for more storage. No place had them! Then we found parts select online and there they were. They were so easy to find with the way the website is set up. Its fool proof shopping! The order was placed on monday and we had the bins wednesday morning, the shipping was so fast! All i did was open the box and wipe them down and snapped them in place. Now we have so much more storage by adding all 3 door bins! Thank you So much Parts Select, you R O C K!

I tried to remove the old light switch using a putty knife and a hammer. It was hard to compress the plastic tabs to pull it back through the hole, but all of a sudden, the lights came on. I guess banging on the switch freed-up the contacts. The new switch is now a spare part in case I need it.
