Had to replace the upright freezer gasket

  • Customer: James from HASTINGS, MN
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Socket set
  • 2 of 2 people found this instruction helpful
I followed the instructions They worked well, but there are two things I should mention. Once I removed the inside panel of the door (with shelving for jars, etc.) to get to the gasket I found the insulation behind it to be encased in ice. I had to replace the insulation. Then, when I had it back together and closed the door there were large gaps between the new gasket and the body of the freezer. I tried various things to fix it and finally found that by pushing hard of the door with the freezer running it pretty well sealed. After running for a while it sealed completely and has been working perfectly since.

lights wouldn't come on/work in refrigerator

Referencing the info/schematics you have on your website, I unscrewed/unattached top-front panel (carefully), from behind the panel you have to detach the wires (2) from the switch, pushed "in" the switch to remove, put in new switch and attach wires to test BEFORE remounting panel. Tada!! Thank you PartSelect! You saved me at least $80...would have been at least $100 to have a repair person come to the house!

Light switch wasn't working.. As I would close the door I would notice our frig light wasn't going off...

  • Customer: David from Hemet, CA
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins

I simply removed the old switch by gently pulling down on the old switch with a screwdriver. When it was about half way out I just gently pulled down on the old switch and it popped out... I removed the two connectors attached to the old switch by pulling on the connectors with a pliers...I tried using my fingers but wasn't able to pull the connectors off so I used pliers. It worked perfectly.. When pulling off the old connectors, make sure you attach the new switch to the same tabs on the new switch... It was very easy to do and took under 5 mins.....The light switch works perfect....P.S. You should unplug the frig while making the connection just in case....Safety first....!!!
