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. Used a thin screwdriver to get under to push while holding switch edge with pliers. Kept slipping. Tape sides to avoid scratching inside of refrigerator.

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.

Used a small screw driver inserted into the front of the switch (facing the front) and pried until the switch was coming out. When out, I removed the connect harness and replace the switch with a new one.

The most time-consuming part is unloading the fridge so you can make the repair, and putting it all back in! Plus you clean everything (glass cover, etc) while it's out. The repair itself probably only took 25 minutes at most. You have to unscrew 4 screws to detach the center metal rails, then snap out the rails. Snapping them into the new cover must be done carefully so as not to break off the tabs on the plastic part you're replacing. It requires a little hand strength (I have arthritis in my hands, so my husband did this part). Then put everything back together and restock the fridge.

The LH top door latch broke.

At first, ordered only a latch only to discover the mounting strip had instead failed. Ordering parts wasn't difficult although the parts catalog graphic leaves a lot to desire. Once I figured out how to remove the strip (had to remove the seal first and no instructions existed), it was easy to snap out the old and snap in the new part. This sure beat the cost of paying a repairman. However I fear than most homeowners that aren't mechanically inclined wouldnt have been successful because of no instructions and the parts catalog that had poor detail and a very small size.

My sis is disabled and not able to to house work, so I helped out by taking apart the LG fridge to clean it and broke a crisper drawer front. I ordered the part about 2 PM on Wenesday and the part was delivered before 11 AM. It took all of one minute to fix and boy was she happy. Thanks for being so efficent and responisve.
