Pried out the old switch with small screwdriver, popped in the new one and tah-dah!! ..the light came on. While I was at it, I cleaned out the freezer :). I cannot begin to imagine what a repairman would have charged for this.

Remove plastic vent cover. Just snaps out. Take out two screws that hold damper cover on. Unclip and unplug damper assembly. Snap in new assembly and plug in. Replace covers. I was pretty sure this would fix my problem after observing the damper for several days. It would stay open and when I moved it by hand it would open a little more and then close. Easy fix!

Water was dripping into ice bin as long as icemaker was activated (bar lowered)

  • Customer: Derek from Murphy, TX
  • Difficulty: Easy

Based on comments I read at this web site, I first ordered the water valve; that did not fix the problem. Replacing the icemaker did fix the problem. It was easy to replace. Contrary to the instructional video, I couldn't simply tilt out the icemaker at the bottom after removing the lower screww; I had to loosed the two top screws as well. The leak was caused the coating on the icemaker being cracked and peeling.

right side door would pop open when left door closed

The right side door of our Jenn Air french door refrigerator would pop open and stay open (just) when the left door was closed. I ordered a new door closure and bushing-d for the door. As it turns out the existing bushing was broken but I replaced both anyway since I was in there. First I removed the plastic hinge cap which is held on by one phillips head screw. Then used a nut driver to remove the hinge itself and pulled the door up and off after removing the internal shelves which pop right off. I laid the door on a blanket on the floor and hung a towel over the opening where the door was to try to save some cool. I pulled out the existing bushing-d and inserted the new one. I replaced the door closure and applied grease, then put the whole thing back together. It works good as new! Doors close properly I wish I had done it sooner!

ice maker not making ice

  • Customer: George from Sedona, AZ
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins

I watched the video which gave me confidence that I could do the repair which I did in very little time. One thing to emphasize though: When you remove the vertical wire connector from the back of the freezer compartment, remember which color wire is on the top. I needed to watch the repair video a second time to be able to make that determination. Probably the repair video should have mentioned keeping track of that connector regarding the re-connection of it because it could also connect when turned 180 degrees.

Ice Maker wouldn't make Ice

I watched a youtube video and completed the repair in less than an hour from start to finish and save myself a service charge. It was fairly easy, the only problem was that it was a bottom freezer and getting to the ice maker was harder than if it was a side by side or top freezer.

Begin by removing, in order: crisper drawers, glass shelf above pantry area, and pantry flip door (which rotates on the pins connected to the pantry end caps). Then remove LH end cap using 1/4" nut driver or socket. End cap is held in place with 3 screws.

I unplugged the fridge. Then I removed the ice bucket. Then I removed the ice maker using a 3/4 socket to separate the connections and then used a small screwdriver to separate whatever connections were left. Then I installed the new ice maker and checked its level. Everything now works fine.

I had to disasemble the crispers and remove the runners and side panel. I needed a screwdriver and wrench set (metric). Once I found the correct socket, everythig went very smooth. My husband was amazed that I could make the repair by myself. I probably saved $200!! The part fit perfect and it was alos very good quality. Thanks
