After replacing the light bulb and still no light I manually pushed the light switch button. Intermittently the light would come on then go out. I removed the power plug from the power source then replaced the light switch. I plugged the refrigerator back in and now I open the door the light comes on and stays on until the door is closed.

First I removed the ice tray rack lifting it out of the way to reach the back cover of the fan. Then, the whole back inside panel had to be removed. Two screws removed the fan and bracket from the freezer unit. The missing bumper lid just snapped into place. Replaced everything in reverse order. Pretty easy job.

The hardest part was taking out original light bulb because screws on shield where hard to unscrew after all this years . The old bulb vent out leaving neck in socket. It took narrow electrical pliers to get neck out .The generic appliance bulb did not fit and had aluminum neck ,not recommended for brass sockets in ovens.Putting new light bulb in was not the problem.

Watched a youtube on capacitors- though on a motor with a pulley, the symptoms were the same, motor running and pulley not turning-bad capacitor. Took a chance for a 17+ dollar part vs a new compressor. It worked.

Followed the video by Parts select. Very accurate to remove and replace. The only trouble I ran into was getting the clip back onto the fan blade shaft! Have to improvise and use a wirenut to spread it and it went right onto the shaft. Now working perfectly! Thanks for the video and the fast part service shipping...

I replaced the Vegetable Pan Cover myself and it looks and fits great. The hardest job was unloading so that the previous cover could be taken out. I was proud of myself for being able to do this job myself without any help. Ordering and receiving the part was so easy that I will always use Parts Select. Thanks again. Juaneese
