Replaced ice maker assembly, 5 screws out, unplug the wire, take some attachments off the old ice maker and put it on the new one, plug it in, 5 screws in...done. I did have to take a mirror to see how to unclip the wire, which turned out to be the hardest part of the whole job..

ice maker not working-components iced up and frozen over

It was easy and my daughter did most of the work while I assisted.
Removed contents from freezer, unplugged refrigerator, shut off water to ice maker. Used hairdryer to thaw inside, placed ice catcher in sink to thaw. Removed defective ice maker and transferred trip lever and wire bundle to new unit. Installed new unit, bent mounting bracket located on bottom of new unit so that when installed the ice maker is horozontally level. Plugged refrig in and turned on water. Water does not come in right away as the temp probably has to be restored to freezing level before things start to work....so just let it run. In the morning lots of nice cubes and no leaks...hooray!

remove large cover, look to the back and ease down over prongs and slide toward you and out. Remove water filter.
Remove light bulbs, so you don't see spots:) Remove to bolt heads at back and gold screw holding gold box on left (it will not fall down) remove temperature plate (two bolt head above), and two more large head screws, right behind light bulbs, box large plastic cover should tilt down. Back in the tray of the cover, will be the white box with the defrost control, lift out and unplug. Plug in the same way. Re assemble putting in the the two back screws first, and then the gold box screw, two behind the lights. Place the temp control plate and screw that in with the other two bolt heads. Cross your fingers :)

I didn't unplug the fridge, but reccommend you do.

Removed control section and found ice build up in transfer tunnel from the freezer section to the fridge section. freezer fan was running, compressor running - no air coming into fridge section. Possible and cheapest problem - no defrost cycle taken place. Replaced defrost heater/t-stat in freezer and defrost controller in fridge. Seams to work (for now).

Light Switch Was Faulty--Failed A Few Months After Purchase Of The Refrigerator

I had several times tried to get the old switch out but with no success. Ordered the "repair kit" and followed directions for removing old switch (there is a plastic spring clip on one side). Easy to unplug the old switch, plug the leads into the new one, snap the new one into place. Took about 5 minutes total--piece of cake. I wish I'd thought to try this years ago when the old switch began to fail.

First I cut the power to the refrigerator. Followed the instructions for removing the door panel. Disconnected the electrical panel to the door controls. replaced the flap only and reassembled. Hate I had to by the solenoid when all I needed was the flap. Ordered the part and had it the next day, very fast shipping. I have used PartSelect for other appliance parts and had good service from them.

Removed mounting screws
Disconnected file hose
Flipped unit over to remove connecter
(This was the only difficult operation; unpluging & pluging it in)
New part fit was very good
Reversed the disassembly order to install
New assembly had to cycle a while to produce ice cubes. I'm very happy now, so bring on the hot weather.
