Went to DIY for directions. Found directions specific to my GE refrigerator model. Followed them to the letter - fixed in less than 10 minutes. Gasket simply needed to be warmed with hair dryer to soften enough to straighten the crimps from the folding needed for packing. Lift the old gasket off the door by prying a starting point with a flat head screwdriver and peeling it off. Then clean the door with soap and water, dry it, and press the new gasket in place. Magnets inside the gasket make the connection. Smmoth it all the wat around, apply a little petroleum jelly to the gasket on the door's hinge side to prevent the door from sticking and you're done.

The trouble with DIYers is that they don't have very much experience with and the benefit of several repairs on the same appliance. So they must rely on their mechanical abilities and the youtube help of Steve. So they must resort to eliminating the variables as their diagnostic approach. In my case I was unable to find the exact description of my problem, so I began with what seemed like the most likely and the least expensive replacement. So after I had replaced the water valve, the micro switch and the main board I finally found the problem was the water filter by ordering and installing a water bypass valve which I did not have readily available at the start.

I researched the issue on line and replaced the microswitch. I didn't test the part since it was so inexpensive and the whole process only took me about 15 minutes to complete. I didn't know "where" the microswitch was located until I watched your video, a very helpful tool. Thanks PartSelect, the part arrived 3 days after I ordered it.Mike in Spokane, WA

Removed control panel. Snapped out pretty easily. Removed flapper assembly (4 small screws). Replaced micro switch by prying it away from its holder (unsnaps easily). Disconnected the two wires leading to the micro switch and connected them to the new microswitch and reinstalled switch in reverse order. Cost of switch, approximately $13 including shipping. Saved a ton of money doing it myself.
