This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Admiral, Estate, Inglis, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, Maytag, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Hardwick, Magic Chef, Amana, Caloric & Glenwood.
I removed the screws holding the bezel, removed the control panel frame, unhooked the four wires from the timer, and removed the timer. I cut the glue holding the circuit board into the frame and removed the circuit board. I unsoldered the faulty encoder switch, dissassembled the switch, determined the correct specifications for the switch, and ordered the nearest equivalent from an electronics supplier. I modified the new encoder to accept the shaft from the old encoder and I re-drilled the circuit board to fit the new encoder. I then soldered and wired the encoder, reversing the wires to correct the direction of rotation. I then reinstalled everything and added the knob purchased from partselect.com. Now it works. Tough repair - not for the faint of heart or those of average skill. But for the record, installing the knob was of course child's play and took only a moment.

Although normally a push fit, we drilled and tapped a #6-32 cross hole and used a set-screw to attach the small knob.The original knob is still hiding somewhere but, thanks to PartSelect we are back in business !
Had to use the filler part from old unit as the short hose coming from back of fridge went into the back of it rather than the side as on the new unit. Met taking units apart to remove parts, but not that difficult.. Parts were shipped right on time, and exactly as shown.
