Light wouldn't always come on when door was opened.

Removed the 6 screws that held the panel up, pulled the panel down. Removed the wires on the old switch. Pulled out the old switch, and pushed the new one back in place. Attached the 2 wires, pushed panel back into place and installed the 6 screws. Pluged back in and light works every time the door is opened now.

Door light switch cracked mounting

I noticed that the refrigerator was having trouble maintaining temperature. Thought it might be time for new one until I found out that a new frig was $5k to $7K. Just happened to notice that the light switch didn't look quite right (was not sitting sqaure to the door). Once I pressed it it came loose. I then realized the the lights were staying on (50 watts of heating). Replaced the switch and the frig started working like new.

Light staying on

A very cold and brittle switch in a 17 year old fridge. Used screwdrivers to pry out with some resistance Had to cut the molded plug in half and split wires, because replacement contacts were farther apart than the original. End result, works great.
