Light Rocker Switch
PartSelect Number PS11738294
Manufacturer Part Number WP1118894
This light rocker light switch is used in a number of household appliances. It is most often found in refrigerators and freezers. This is a simple mechanism that helps turn the light in your appliance on and off. If the door of your appliance is open the light should be on, and if the door is closed the light should be off. Your appliance door is opened and closed frequently, meaning the mechanism may wear out over time. It is not uncommon that this part will need to be replaced. You may need a putty knife to release the mounting tab and remove the faulty rocker switch. To install the new one, simply attach the wires and snap it into place in the liner of your refrigerator or freezer.

Door Light Switch
PartSelect Number PS11738900
Manufacturer Part Number WP2149705
The purpose of the light switch in your refrigerator is to automatically turn on the light when the door is opened. If the light does not come on automatically when you open the door, the contacts inside the light switch may be burned out, meaning it is time to replace the switch. This package contains both the new light switch and a small plastic spacer. To complete this repair, you will need to remove the control panel section of your refrigerator. The only tools you will require for this repair are a 1/4-inch nut driver and maybe a small flat blade screwdriver. Be sure to disconnect the power source from the refrigerator before completing this repair.
