Opened the refrigerator door, pulled down the filter cover, twisted the old one out and removed it. Placed the new one in - twisted it into place, replaced the cover and closed the door. It is working great!!

The refrigerator side is too cold, ice maker and water do not work.

I'm a pretty handy person generally but I had to call on my engineer neighbor to help. I've never soldered before so I didn't feel comfortable installing the thermistor. I had everything ready for him so all he did was cut the existing thermistor out, strip the wires on the replacement , solder and tape and he was seriously done in 10 minutes! I replaced everything and plugged the fridge in to find that my fridge still freezes everything. I have now ordered the damper control and gasket to hopefully fix this problem.

Take filter out of the box and open the refrigerator. Open the housing in the frig that holds the filter and twist the light-blue piece 1/4 turn, counter-clockwise. (Put the light-blue piece in a safe place.) Take foil away from filter. With 1/4 turn in the clockwise direction, twist the filter into its position. Let five gallons run through the system to get fresh, filtered water.

It took one minute to put the shelf in. The best part was the speed with which the part arrived. I also want to compliment the operator I dealt with. She was very helpful.

Removed crisper drawers and the crisper frame. Then removed the glass shelf from the frame and also the plastic front piece and the metal rod that adds stability to the frame. Those last two items required a screw driver and pliers. Inserted the metal bar into the new frame, popped on the front piece, and installed frame in frig. Put in center rail, then glass top, and then put in crisper drawers.

The repair was straight-forward once the pantry drawer and lower shelves were emptied and removed - remove the mounting screws, replace the broken end cap with the new part. It took me several minutes to reattach everything. It took me longer to clean up all the old food spills under the pantry drawer.

Similar to other reports. Only thing I can add is the nut driver is 1/4" and it is all I needed to remove and replace all five screws.

After years of using a flash light to check the contents of my refrigerator, I decided to try to fix the problem myself. Replacing the light switch was very easy. The directions were straight forward and I'm sorry I waited so long to tackle the problem.
