It went as your installation video showed but a lot more water came from the lines after I turned it off. Luckily and had a bucket and extra towels on hand prior to my installation.

I first replaced the dual water valve solenoid. The ice maker still refused to work. I then ordered and installed the ice maker part number S106626640 626639 OEM listed for a Maytag D7824706Q ice maker. This was an exact replacement. I swapped out the wires and wire toggle as directed. After plugging it in and approximately 6 hours, it made ice. Be sure to trim the plastic hose ends going to the water valve solenoid to ensure a good seal. I also insisted on using OEM parts, not the less expensive generic replacements. The OEM parts are twice the money but worth it considering my free labor. The installation was not difficult.

Please bear in mind I am 65 years old & it was harder to get up & down off the floor then to change the switch. Was very easy - watched video, unplugged unit. I used the putty knife at the right front corner to work loose, when it came loose had to loose the left side a little. The unit pulled out easily. detached the wired that had a single plug with 2 prongs on it. Attached the plug, pushed new switch into place. There was no way you could place wires on wrong prong. When done, plugged refrigerator back in & checked if working. I CAN SEE THE LIGHT and the food in the freezer now. Thank you for making an easy repair.

We tried repairing with a new switch which was very easy to install but it didn't fix the problem.

Light switch in the refrigerator was faulty from the first day we installed the fridge.

I had ordered some other parts for something entirely different off your website and service was great. So after almost ten years of a dark refrigerator, because of a defective switch, I decided to see if you had the part to fix it... You did and the part got here in 3 days. I had a working light switch and all the light in the world where my husband needed it most (in the fridge). It took me at the most ten minutes to replace the part. All is well now and I have a happy husband who can find the leftovers just fine. Thanks for your great service!

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.

Unplugged the refrigerator.Removed the nut on the front bottom side from the support bracket with a nut driver.Pull down and out the old icemaker but not clear out to remove the electrical connector reaching to the back . Re-used the old front cover and the wire support clips and the wire connector assembly.Also put the shut off wire on the new icemaker.Re-installed in reverse sequence and waited for ice cubes to be made.Make sure the water line coming in the back goes to the ice tray.
