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

Had a similar situation with a central A/C unit and the capacitor was the culprit. Went online to Parts Select, punched in my model number and Parts Select brought up the detail breakout of my unit. I easily identified the capacitor and the overload unit it connects to and ordered the parts for about $40.That whole process took about 10 minutes. Replaced the parts in about 15 minutes and cured the problem. Parts Select was so easy to find and order what I needed that on a scale of 1-10, I would rank them as an 11!

The is my 'refreshment' cooler and sits in our garage. Hotter than heck in the summer so the things runs a lot. Started making a little growling noise. Had to partially disassemble the back panel to get to the fan. Touched the exposed shaft for a second and the sound stopped. OK, it's the fan. Went on line, used the (really great) exploded diagram to figure out what I needed. A couple days later the parts show up. Installed the new fan blade and retainer Removed the old motor (couple of mounting screws), connected the new motor (a plug in) and mounted the new motor making sure the grommet on the front and back were engaged. Turned the unit on and everything worked. Reinstalled the foam channel, the back panel and it ran perfectly. Great support (the diagram), fast delivery and fair pricing. Not bad!

The evaporator fan in the freezer compartment began making a loud noise.

I found a replacement evaporator fan motor and 2 mounting bracket grommets at PartSelect.com at a reasonable price. I watched the installation video provided and installed the new parts as shown in the video start to finish installation time 22 minutes.i

In my rental house, something had happened to one of the freezer shelves by the previous tenants. It left only one shelf to use so I ordered a freezer door shelf which is basically a bar to hold things on the molded shelf. Without it, the shelf was unusable.

All I had to do was snap in the shelf. Done! Now the tenants have an extra shelf to use in the freezer.

Thanks to your informative website, installation and assembly of the evaporator fan and motor was very easy. One thing I am constantly worried when I repair and replace parts around my house is getting correct and matching parts. Your website is very informative in this respect and the tutorial videos are excellent aids in replacing parts, fixing problems, and troubleshooting issues. I have added your website to favorites in my browse for future reference.

When the new one came in, I just opened the refrigerator's door and plugged (put)it into place and slid down to lock it in place. That's it. The order situation was more frustrated than the installations part.

Bad switch for door prevented interior light from coming on

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

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.

Followed the video about the gasket repair worked like a charm. Dryer for 5 minutes softened it and straightened it out like cake work. Snapped right in like the video, I thought it was too easy. Worked like a charm.
