I carefully took the clear plastic piece out of the top of the refrigerator. I removed two screws, unsnapped the white plastic cover and unplugged the old defrost timer and plugged in the new one. I then replaced everything in reverse order.
followed the instructions provided and that's it!
The repair descripition was accurate. The difficult part was getting the old switch out. It has a release clip that is hard to reach. It took several tries and a bit of force to get the old part to release from the cabinet.In stalling the new part was easer that the instructions explaned. There was no need to split the original plug. I unplugged the old switch, plugged in the new and snapped it into place. 30 seconds after I started the reinstall it was in the cabinet and working
Very simple. Matched female plugs with respective male color coded prong; pushed together then inserted unit in slot of freezer sidewall and rotated into position...job done.
We unplugged the refrigerator, used a knife to pry out the old switch. Cut the extra prong off of the new switch and connected the switch to the wire connectors. Slid the switch back into place plugged the refrigerator back into the outlet and . . . . . . Wah, lah, the light and switch worked again. We washed and then simply slid the vegetable crisper into the holder and replaced the one that had broken. This was a really great experience and it was quick and easy to fix on our own.!
Had to push the light switch to get lamp to light up.Removed power from refrig. and removed old light switchand replaced with the one I got from Partselect. Turned power back on and was done.
Repair was tremendously easy. All I did was remove old light switch by prying out with screw driver and plugging in the new light switch and pushing it into the hole. Simple! The instructions weren't needed, but they were very thorough.
The best part of the repair was how easy it was to find and order the part. Instead of searching the parts houses around town I just went to the PartSelect web site, quickly found and ordered the part in about five minutes, received the part the next day at my home and was ready to make the repair. Wow! What a pleasure for something to work the way it was meant to. Removed old switch located by prying out with sharp knife or screwdriver. Don't worry about breaking it or cracking plastic. Disconnect(unplug) wires from back of switch. Replace (plug-in) wires on back of new switch. Insert in location of old switch. Finisheed.
installed new parts
Used screw driver to pop out old switch. Used pliers to hold wire connection from fall back into slot on fridge. Inserted new swith into plug and pressed new switch back in place.
Poped ou the old switch, connected new switch and pushed back into socket.
Pried out the old switch and installed the new switch.
Popped out broken switch with blunt flat edged instrument. Disconnected switch from unit . Plugged new piece in and reinserted into side panel of refrigerator. Very easy.
I had several times tried to get the old switch out but with no success. Ordered the "repair kit" and followed directions for removing old switch (there is a plastic spring clip on one side). Easy to unplug the old switch, plug the leads into the new one, snap the new one into place. Took about 5 minutes total--piece of cake. I wish I'd thought to try this years ago when the old switch began to fail.
