Product Description

Door Light Switch Specifications

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 freezer side light is out
For model number WRS322FDAM04
Hello Leslie, thank you for your question. If the freezer side light is out you will want to test the switch part number PS11740432. If the switch doesn't fix the issue, you may need to replace the LED light assembly in that section which is part number PS11755866. I hope this helps!

Refrigerator top light was flickering.. replaced light switch.. now the freezer light is completely out and the lights in the refrigerator are dim. what to do??? thanks..
For model number wrs325fdat04
Hello Albert, thank you for your question. If the freezer light is out and the lights are dim in the fridge you would have to replace the LED Electronic Control Board Part Number: WPW10515058. This is the part that controls the lights in the unit. I hope this helps!

The light is out. The manual says that the led bulbs cannot be changed, yet it appears that has been mentioned. So can i or can’t i change the led bulbs instead of buying a light fixture?
For model number Wrs322FDAM04
Hello Bill, thank you for your question. Unfortunately, the LED bulbs are not replaceable. The Fixture would have to be replaced as an assembly. I hope this helps!

First the light in the freezer went out, then one of the lights in the frig went out later the other light went out. Can these lights be replaced. If so how?
For model number wrs325fdam04
Hello Marshall, thank you for your question. You will want to replace the Part Number: WPW10515058, light module assembly. To do this you would use a small flat head screw driver to release the clips on the side then the light module will release from the ceiling. The wires are unplugged from the module, and then the new part is plugged in and snapped into place. Please remember to unplug the unit before starting this repair. Good luck with your repair!

I am trying to replace the refrigerator door light switch. I was able to take panel off and find the switch to be replaced but am having difficulty removing it. The wires are not pulling out. It looks simple on the videos I have watched but mine are not budging. I am just wondering if there is a trick to remove these.
For model number ED25PQXFW02
Hello Sherri, Thanks for your question. You may need a plastic putty knife to release the internal clips on the side of the switch. A small screwdriver can help with removing the wires from the switch itself. I hope this helps.

The small 10w light in the water/ice dispenser area has burned out. In trying to unscrew it, it doesn't budge. I have applied about all the pressure on it that i'm comforatble with and it doesn't budge. I guess I need some guidance---either apply more pressure---or it doesn't actually unscrew, it pulls out ---or there is a latch/catch up there somewhere that needs to be moved out of the way ---or ...???
For model number ED5VHEXVB00
Hello Jackson, Thank you for the question. The bulb PartSelect Number PS11739347 just unscrews so it might be corroded in the socket In this case the socket shoudl be removed and replaced as well. PartSelect Number PS327346. Hope this helps!

    Broken light switch
    Took all the screws out of the plastic shroud that encloses the switch .There only four that I needed to remove, were the two in front where the switches that go,they go in horizontally and two in the back with large washers on them that hold the back to the top of the box that go in vertically.The switch was a snap ( make that two snaps ) the wiring is almost self explanatory. then it gos back to the way you took it off. OH! and don't forget to turn the light bulb all the way back in to the socket , so the light will work after you take the time to install it yourself.I had the water supply line from under the box to the water dispenser in the door and the total bill on that was one hundred thirty seven and a hand full of change.Don't be afraid to do it yourself the savings is enough on one one item to make several months payments on a new one Randy the "Handy Man'
