I started removing the switch by prying on the right side with a screwdriver, when it emerged enough I used pliers to finish removing it. I then unpluged rhe wires from the bad switch and pluged them on the new switch and "poped" it into the hole.

Just as your video described, although due to the age of the fridge, it took a bit longer to remove the defective switch. Your video made this so simple, I can't imagine why we lived with a dark fridge for so long! I was ready to buy a whole new fridge, as repairmen are often nonexistent for small repairs. I am the biggest fan of your company & it's repair video. THANK YOU SO MUCH

Gently pry out switch in door jam with screwdriver and pull both connectors off and put connectors on new switch then push switch back into the hole. Looked it up on the internet and video showed how to and also had link to new part, ordered and less than a week later the fridge is bright again. I have an older freezer also and it seems that they all use the same switches. Very Very easy

Shut off water supply and disconnect water line. Remove the pannel on the lower back and disconect the water line from the water filter head. Remove the water line guide hole cover. Remove the water filter and the water filter enclosure which needs on tools to remove. Remove the two nut screws at the top with a ong 1/4 inch nutdriver or a 1/4 socket and a long extention. Pull water filter head and tubing out. Install the new water filter head with tubing. Be careful not to over tighten the nut screws holding the water filter head in place. Replace water filter and connect the tubing. Trun on the water supply and run water through the water despenser until no air comes out. Check for leaks.

I turned the water off to the frig. Disconnected the two waterlines to the filter head. Removed the water filter from the head. Removed the filter head cover which exposed the two screws holding the head in place. I removed the head and then reversed the procedure to install the new filter head.

water flow at door was very very slow

normally low water flow would indicate filter change. however i changed filter two months ago. using the wonderful information available on this website, figured i'd try changing the water filter head with tubing, as it seemed that water flow w/o filter, although substantially better than with filter, might be low. unfortunately changing water filter head didn't solve problem. it was the bloody filter after all! however the repair went well, the correct part arrived in a timely fashion, and over the course of time i think that the spring mechanism inside the filter head had weakened and was not making as solid as contact as when new. so it was i feel a worthwhile repair as water flow is now awesome with new filter in place. thanks guys for your great website. you are making the world a better place!

Low water output & Vibration at Filter

  • Customer: Ray from Sarasota, FL

Removed plate on back top of fridge, removed filter and cover then removed 2 screws inside, removed cover at bottom of fridge removed water line going into solenoid, removed water intake line from wall and pulled filter assembly out of fridge. Install just did reverse one note there is a caulk around the lines in the back of the fridge peel that out and save it and once hoses are back in place press the caulk back into place around the hoses. DOUBLE check the part you order I mistakenly ordered the one with a male end on the intake line and needed a female end was easy fix with a compression fitting though. Apparently sediment accumulates in the assembly on the intake side so it will not give the filter enough water to distribute and there is NO way to clean it out.

Chatter In Water Line/Water Dispenser Inop After Replacing Filter

First, the problem is not the double outlet water valve if your water dispenser begins to chatter and stop dispensing water - although the valve is a common failure. Replacing the top filter mount was a straight forward repair: 1. Turn off the water 2. Disconnect the two water lines 3. Unscrew the small screws covering the exit port (exterior, top, back, left of unit) 4. Remove the filter cover (squeeze the left side in and pull on right side) 5. Remove the filter 6. Unscrew the two screws holding the mount in place 7. Remove the filter by pulling the tubing (two water lines disconnected earlier) through 8. Install new mount in reverse order. Note: the top filter housing mount comes with a bypass filter. . . Don't add another to the cart
