I actually watched a YouTube video for LG refrigerators. The hardest part was taking the wire harness out. Mine was really stuck in there. But got it, put the new switch in and viola it worked. Yay!

Go to this site on You Tube to watch the "how to" replace the gasket retainer. The retainer I needed did not come with brackets or the cam you will need. You will need transfer them from the old retainer to the new one. Not hard, just be mindful of position of the items you remove to put them back in place the same way. A metal rod holds the brackets and spring in place with a screw on one end to prevent rod from sliding off retainer. The cam has a screw that holds it in place, use from old retainer. If the old cam is not broken use the one from the old retainer. It is not hard and you will save $$$ that you would pay an appliance repair company.

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.

With alot of elbow grease and a pair of pliars we managed to get the old connector off wo cuttig the tubing as the tubing was getting to short from being cut once to many times & there was no more play in the length.Original connector was a different color and shapped slightly different than the new one so was a bit concerned that I had ordered the wrong part but it went one very easily & did not leak. We even managed to remove it again just to see if it was possible wo cutting again. it came off with no trouble.I would say the replacement part was a better fit than the original simply because we could remove it easily wo having to cut the tube!
