Light Rocker Switch

This light rocker light switch is used in a number of household appliances. It is most often found in refrigerators and freezers. This is a simple mechanism that helps turn the light in your appliance on and off. If the door of your appliance is open the light should be on, and if the door is closed the light should be off. Your appliance door is opened and closed frequently, meaning the mechanism may wear out over time. It is not uncommon that this part will need to be replaced. You may need a putty knife to release the mounting tab and remove the faulty rocker switch. To install the new one, simply attach the wires and snap it into place in the liner of your refrigerator or freezer.

FAN BLADE AND CLIP ASSY

If you notice an unusual noise coming from your freezer, the evaporator fan blade might be the problem. Frost-free freezer models use evaporator fans to move air through the evaporator for more efficient cooling. If the evaporator fan blade gets damaged or worn it may become noisy. If the blade is loose on the motor shaft or if the fins are damaged, it should be replaced. Be sure to remove power to the appliance before attempting any repair. The evaporator fan assembly is located behind the air grille or evaporator cover and can normally be accessed by simply removing a few mounting screws. The fan blade is normally pressed on to the motor shaft and secured by a spring clip.

Door Gasket

The door gasket is used on vertical freezers. Screws are no longer included with this product. The gasket creates a tight closure around the opening of the door to ensure that outside air does not enter the freezer, causing it to warm up. If you notice that your freezer is not closing properly, is not maintaining the proper temperature, or there is frost build up, it could be due to the breakdown of the door gasket. It is white in color. This is an easy repair that should not take longer than 60 minutes and only requires a nutdriver to fix.

Evaporator fan did not run

The first thing I observed was the bolts that attach the motor to the mounting bracket were installed backwards at the factory. This caused the fan to catch on the bolt ends which resulted in the motor burning up. When I installed the new motor, I reversed the bolt direction. There is no way the fan will catch. The freezer works great ! read more
