Video makes it look easy. Kenmore refrigerator does not have "groove" along the right hand side of switch that allows for pushing down on release.

After watching a few iTunes videos I was able to order the light switch from part select and within a week I had the new switch. I had a little trouble getting the switch out. I used a flat screw driver and taped around the edge to keep from damaging the wall inside. I found the clip on the right side and had to use some force to get it popped out, you may need to use pliers to disconnect the switch.

Cover the putty knife with tape so you do not scratch the side wall where the switch is located. Slide the knife under the edge of the switch and push in a bit towards the switch and slightly twist to pop the switch out of its hole. Disconnect the wires from the switch and simply plug in the new switch. Push wiring back into the hole and careful push the switch into the hole until it snaps into place.

This was late on a Sunday afternoon. I immediately called the store where I purchased the refrigerator who told me to go on-line for any parts. So I went to PartSelect and was able to find the correct part very easily and then order it. It arrived on Thursday without having paid for any upgrade in shipping time.I am very impressed with this company.

I was told the mother board went out. Took a few months to finally get one myself after repairman didn't come through. It turned out not to be the motherboard that sears repairman tested it for and said that's what it needed. I found Parts select after going round and round with sears parts refusing to accept return. There prices were better, as well as shipping and it came so quick i thought it was over night. The controller assembly was not the problem so we have it for a spare now. It was the freezer fan but even after installing it nothing would work is why we ordered the controller assembly. after 2 days and about 7 hours of checking, taking apart, rechecking assembling by my determined electrician it turned out to be a loose wire. LOL hope this helps someone. I'm just glad to have my fridge again! Blessings!!!

PartSelect made it so easy for us. We found the glass online, paid for it and it was delivered a couple days later. Packaged well we took out the glass and placed it in where the broken one used to be in the shelf casing. Simple. Thanks to PartSelect we didn't have to spend crazy money to have someone else do this simple repair.

I called LG and followed the instructions given over the phone. The instructions couldn't have been simpler. Disconnect the appliance for several hours and then connect again. I disconnected the appliance overnight, cleaned out the freezer, and reconnected it. Problem solved. Did not need to call a repairman and did not use the clips.

Replaced the broken drawer with the new one. More importantly, your service is incredible!!! I immediately called my son who has a broken dryer and told him, you must use this internet site. Your price beat the competitor by more than 50% cheaper!!!!! I am not kidding, 50%, now that is what I call great service. I will hold onto your information for future purchases. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
