Unplug refrigerator. Remove the food trays in the freezer section. Unplug the wire connector to the icemaker. Remove the three screws to the icemaker then remove the icemaker. To remove the back panel, first remove the plastic cover on the top by inserting a screwdriver in the indicated slots on the sides then prying until cover snaps off. Remove the plastic cover for the temperature probe in the upper right corner by snapping off the cover and carefully fishing the probe through the hole in the cover. Remove the 4 screws in the rear panel and carefully pull panel out from rear of freezer section. Fish the temperature probe through the hole to allow the panel to be removed. Snap the plastic icemaker plug connecter mounting bracket out of rear panel and fish it through the panel. Now the rear panel can be completely removed. Locate the defrost thermostat in the upper section of the freezer compartment and unsnap it from the copper coil. Cut wires to the thermostat, being sure to leave enough length to splice the new thermostat in. Crimp the wires to the new thermostat using a butt connector and heat shrink tubing to seal up the connection. Snap the new thermostat onto the copper tube where the old one was positioned. It is a good idea to check the heater element with an ohmmeter while you have this all apart. Do this by unplugging the element on the right side and connecting one side of your meter to the plug there and the other side of your meter to the plug connection that is on the icemaker plug (trace the wires). If you do not get any continuity, then your element is bad and will need to be replaced. Replace the rear cover after re-installing the plug assemby for the icemaker and temperature probe. Dont forget to fish the icemaker tube and the temperature probe through the rear cover before screwing it back in place. re- install the plastic covers on the rear panel and the temperature probe, then reinstall the icemaker.

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!

I did exactly as the video showed. I popped out the old switch, disconnected the two terminals, connected the new switch and put it back. The light now works! The refrigerator is over 25 years old and the switch works! What a great website this is. Couldn't of done the job without Partselect's help.
