Gently pry out switch in door jam with screwdriver and pull both connectors off and put connectors on new switch then push switch back into the hole. Looked it up on the internet and video showed how to and also had link to new part, ordered and less than a week later the fridge is bright again. I have an older freezer also and it seems that they all use the same switches. Very Very easy

Super easy, had my 15 year old do it (with my supervision).
Followed very clear Instructions that come with the replacement...
But, he could not get to the plug location until he removed 4 screws holding the motor assembly that spins the ice in the drawer and moved it out of the way...
Followed the rest of the instructions...
Works like a charm.

I watched the video online, and said, "hey, I can do that." And yep, I did. I'm pretty comfortable with handyman work - but had never tackled a frig door before. The door closing cam that had completely come apart turned out to be straight forward to fix with the replacement part.

Broken ice maker replacement

Installing the actual ice maker was quite easy. What takes most of the time is preparing the freezer for the install. Need to remove all shelving, (and the door) to gain access to the unit. The ice maker is simple to install once access is achieved. Putting everything back together takes some time.

Followed the instructions. Smooth as silk. This part is better than the original. There appears to be a sensor that beeps when the ice reservoir is full.

Followed easy video instructions. Loosened the necessary bolts, etc. Replaced hinge assembly, lined up door, lubed the hinge with vasoline. Works perfectly now. May purchase another assembly as spare as it appears this may be a common repair issue.

I followed your terrific video. I first got all tools ready, covered a table in cardboard, and removed food from the fridge door. I removed the cap and screws on top of the door hinge. Lifting the door off was simple, and after laying the door on the table, the retaining screw was easily loosened, and the cam screw removed. The only problem was that half the thin gasket under the broken cam was missing. No new gasket came with the part. I wanted the new cam to lay flat, so I made a partial gasket from a matchbook cover and filled the gap. It all went back together quickly. Just have tools ready beforehand. Ten minute job, unless you have to make a new gasket or part of one. Thanks, guys.

I spent 15 - 20 minutes just hunting/deciding which of several sets of parts & directions to follow. The provided directions were not bad; but none of them quite matched my GE ADORA side-by-side model. Once I came up with the actions I would need to take...I was done in 5 minutes! The kit , as I said, came with all the parts one could need (and one or two un-needed parts included for other model GE refrigerators) I am very happy with PART SELECT...altough GE doesn't rate as high with me for their declining reliability.

Refrigerator door would not close completely.

Condenser fan motor was running slow. This was not a problem included in your list of possible problems. I thought that maybe the capacitor was bad but have no way to check it. So I ordered one. when I received it, I installed it. That was not the problem. So I ordered a fan motor and installed it. That was not the problem. So finally I ordered a control board and installed it. That solved the problem. So maybe you should put "cond.fan motor runs slow" in your list of possible faults and what causes that problem. Capacitor was easy to install, simply remove the cover plate, flip off retaining wire, unplug the capacitor and replace. Fan motor was a bit more difficult. It must be removed from mount after fan scroll is removed. Remove one screw that holds scroll, bend the top down and remove. Then pull hard on fan blade to remove it. It must be installed on new motor. Two screws in frame mount can be removed with some effort if you have a 1/4" drive ratchet with a Phillips screwdriver bit. Then pull frame open and install new motor. Push fan blade on new motor shaft hard. Replacing control board was easy. I used a pair of long nose pliers with 90 degree bend to get mounting pins closed to pull board off.
