water flow at door was very very slow

normally low water flow would indicate filter change. however i changed filter two months ago. using the wonderful information available on this website, figured i'd try changing the water filter head with tubing, as it seemed that water flow w/o filter, although substantially better than with filter, might be low. unfortunately changing water filter head didn't solve problem. it was the bloody filter after all! however the repair went well, the correct part arrived in a timely fashion, and over the course of time i think that the spring mechanism inside the filter head had weakened and was not making as solid as contact as when new. so it was i feel a worthwhile repair as water flow is now awesome with new filter in place. thanks guys for your great website. you are making the world a better place!

Low water output & Vibration at Filter

Removed plate on back top of fridge, removed filter and cover then removed 2 screws inside, removed cover at bottom of fridge removed water line going into solenoid, removed water intake line from wall and pulled filter assembly out of fridge. Install just did reverse one note there is a caulk around the lines in the back of the fridge peel that out and save it and once hoses are back in place press the caulk back into place around the hoses. DOUBLE check the part you order I mistakenly ordered the one with a male end on the intake line and needed a female end was easy fix with a compression fitting though. Apparently sediment accumulates in the assembly on the intake side so it will not give the filter enough water to distribute and there is NO way to clean it out.

killed power-gently pried out old switch using two screw drivers-replaced faulty switch-and tested OK.

Things fall out of my refrigerator frequently thus the broken lite switch. Thought tape would solve until new part arrived. Thank goodness part came the next day as even with tape on and door close and light bulbs removed fridge read door as open and would not cool It is programmed not to run with door open. Within 24 hours part was delivered, unbelievable . It was that fast. Easy insertion and plugged in to the wiring and my refridge once more recognized the door was shut and began cooling. Thanks again

It really was as simple as the other folks noted. Slid a screwdriver into the edge of the broken switch and it popped right out. Disconnected and reconnected each of the two wires and just slid the switch back into the slot. Truly a DIY fix.
