this part basically pops in and out on each end of pantry lid. Took about 30 seconds to replace it! I was amazed with the quick service I received from your company too! It was shipped the same day I placed the order and received it the very next day! Way to go!!

My 3 year old broke the tab, so I ordered the new piece. My husband installed it, but I was right there watching. Very simple fix. No issues at all. One thing I loved is that the shipping was super fast! I did not request any expedited shipping, but as fast as it came you would've thought I had. I know this is a website I will be purchasing future replacement products from!!

The tab which held the bottom drawer lid opened broke

I removed the bottom pantry drawer, the lid, the two drawers above the bottom drawer, the glass shelf above the bottom drawer, and the plastic supports for the glass shelf. I used the socket set to remove the sliding metal tray, I installed the sliding metal tray piece on the new end cap. Then I removed the two bolts that held the plastic "pantry end cap" in place. Once those bolts were removed, I carefully pulled the end cap into the center of the fridge to separate temperature control rod from the back of the fridge. There is a piece of angled plastic that holds it in place. Once I had that whole apparatus removed (there are three parts) I had to carefully angle the plastic piece to disconnect the temperature control rod from the old end cap, and install it on the new end cap. So long as you are careful and do not force it, it is very straight forward. You do not need to bend or force anything to get it separated and re-installed. Once I had the temp control rod moved over, I installed the angled plastic piece in the back, then angled the end cap against the side wall, then installed the two bolts that hold it in place. Then I put the pantry drawer, shelf, and other drawers back in place.

Replaced the pantry end cap by first removing the pantry drawer. Then removing both crisper drawers and the first shelf with the plastic bars that hold it in place. Removed the slider that the pantry drawer rests on to move in and out -just needed a small flat head screwdriver for that. Then removed three nuts holding the end cap with a nut driver. End cap snap right out and new one went right in. Screwed in three nuts. Then reattached the slider for pantry draw with two screws. Reassembled shelf, crisper drawers and then slid in pantry drawer - reattached the pantry lid to the pins on either end cap. Very easy. The activity that took longest was acquiring the nut driver - I didn't have the right tool. All in all simple job.

had to replace the whole right side panel, came off fairly easy, but to get the adustable rod out and back into the new panel was somewhat difficult. I found out you can bend more than what you think to get it out and back in. It is the rod that adjusts the air flow

Changed bulb, not the problem, had to remove switch to identify correct choice to order (3 pronged verus 2) after that it was easy beyond having to stand on my head to make the exchange. (N B before removing old switch it actually came back to life)

Watched the video on the web site and then followed the instructions. It was very easy to change. After changing it, I filled it with water from a cup to get it started making ice since the video does not address how to do this. It has been working well ever since. If you are handy with tools, you can do this.

I put in a new ice maker because it was not in very good condition. The water valve had a very slow leak which allowed water to freeze on the way to the ice maker and plugged the line. This problem was in one of your repair articles all of which were very welcome

The little knob that holds the door onto the deli bin had snapped. I ordered the part, it arrived within a couple of days. I emptied the necessary shelves, cleaning as I went of course. Removed the old part and installed the new part- instructions weren't necessary. I had the part back in within a few minutes. Someone else had reported that it took longer to remove the shelves and replace them than it did to replace the end cap. I found my experience was the same. I was very proud that I didn't have to ask my husband to do the repair for me- I did it myself.

Internal light did not come on each time the door was opened.

After disconnecting the electricity. I followed the instructions as indicated in the "HOW TO" article on the website. I used a steel putty knife and pried the light switch out of its retaining hole. I worked the right side the most since this is the side with the retaining clip. After I removed the switch I transferred the two electrical outlets to the new switch and easily snapped it into place. Engaged the electric power and tested the switch.
