Switch, Plunger Grid/Light

The purpose of the light switch in your refrigerator is to automatically turn on the light when the door is opened. If the light does not come on automatically when you open the door, the contacts inside the light switch may be burned out, meaning it is time to replace the switch. This package contains both the new light switch and a small plastic spacer. To complete this repair, you will need to remove the control panel section of your refrigerator. The only tools you will require for this repair are a 1/4-inch nut driver and maybe a small flat blade screwdriver. Be sure to disconnect the power source from the refrigerator before completing this repair.

The circulation pump assembly, used in a free-standing ice maker, delivers water from the water tank over the top of the evaporator plate. It does this to form the ice that drops onto the cutting grid. The first step in installing this part is to remove the chute, ice scoop bracket, water pan, and head cap screw that holds the plastic cover over the pump. Refer to the manufacturer-approved installation instructions for further guidance and accuracy. Make sure to disconnect and unplug the ice maker from the power source before installing the circulation pump. Remember to wear gloves to protect your hands.
