Product Description

Door Switch Specifications

This light switch may also be known as a refrigerator door switch or a light switch kit, and is compatible with your refrigerator. The function of the refrigerator door switch is to turn on the light when your fridge door is open, and to make sure it is off when your refrigerator door is closed. The reason you would need to replace this part is if your light is not turning on when your door is open. For this repair, you will need a putty knife, and a small flat-blade screwdriver.

Broke the Rocker Switch in Fridge side
Popped out with butter knife and unplugged 3 prong connector and reversed with anew switch.

But, unfortunately it got broken again exactly same way as before.
So, I ordered same switch again for 2nd time.

Maytag should recall that Rocker Switch and build with better materials.

broken light switch in the freezer
We removed the old switch, unplugged it, plugged the new one in and it was easy to do. But when we tried to put the switch back in we had a very hard time doing it. Eventually got it in, but if it had not been for the difficulty we had getting the new switch to snap in to place, it would have taken under 5 minutes.

Refer lights not working, there are two lights and neither worked. Decided the switch was the problem.
The switch fix but did not fix the problem. I assumed the wires go on the same way as on the old switch. Is it possible if one light Burns out, the other will not work either?

Difficulty removing old switch.
Everything went as planned except the cold temperature (freezer door switch located inside freezer) made deflection of the switch locking tab difficult to remove. Letting the switch warm up was not an option.

The door switch was broken so the interior light would not come on.
The instructions in the package were not helpful. They wanted me to cut the wiring harness and described where to cut based on the wire colors. My wires were not the same color! I removed the light mechanism using a combination of a screwdriver, putty knife, and plain old muscle with my fingers! The wiring harness unplugged easily and the new one inserted. It was easy to push the whole assembly back into the door. I spent more time looking for something to cut the wiring harness with (and never did find it) than the whole job actually took without needing to cut anything!

The refrigerator light and the freezer light does not come on. I think the refrigerator door switch might be bad. My question is if one switch is bad will it stop both refrigerator and freezer light to not come on? Thanks, Bill
For model number 10651133213

Hello Bill, Thank you for the question. If both the Fresh Food and Freezer sections lights are not working, you may need to replace the LED Light Control Board. We hope this helps!

ice maker stopped making ice, I found water inlet to ice maker frozen. Defrosted freezer, it made less than two trays and stopped again. WHAT DO I DO ??
For model number 59679349510
PartSelect logo
Hi Tom, Thank you for your question. If the water line from the water inlet valve to the ice maker was frozen, you will need to verify if these 2 parts are working correctly as the components of these parts may have been damaged. You should also check the fill tubes and the cycling thermostat. We have included a link that you may reference on how to check some of these parts. Once you have determined the part you need, please feel free to call customer service. We are open 7 days a week and anyone will be happy to assist you. We look forward to hearing from you!

Hello Jo and thank you for writing. As they all quit working at the same time it certainly sounds like a faulty LED emitter control board PS1173809 you should check for signs of damage, and replace it if needed. We hope this helps. Please contact us anytime.

The light in the fresh food section does not come on when the door is opened, however if i wiggle the switch, the light comes on.I'm tried removing the switch, but despite watching videos, i am not able to get the old switch out.
For model number Maytag MZD2766GES
PartSelect logo
Hello Terry and thank you for writing. Sometimes the switch is stuck due to debris built up, so unplug your unit and wash around the switch with warm soapy water and see if that helps. For your convenience, we have attached the link to our repair video (not sure if you seen this one). We hope this helps. Good luck with your repair https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S7QQ8Y97Fog&feature=emb_title

Does the light switch on the freezer side have anything to do with water and ice dispensing? Light works, freezer works, filter replaced, dispensing control board replaced, but still not dispensing water or ice. Thanks
For model number GI5FSAXVY02
PartSelect logo
Hello Ken, Thank you for your question. Our sources do not show any correlation with the light switch affecting the ice and water dispenser, but if the water filter has already been replaced, we suggest replacing the water inlet valve under part PS2069865 for your model to fix the dispenser issues. We hope this helps.

Will not dispense water or make ice WRF989SDAM02
For model number WRF989SDAM02
PartSelect logo
Hello Guy and thanks for writing. If the refrigerator ice maker is not working the water filter might be clogged. Try changing the water filter. If the ice maker is not working the icemaker mold thermostat might be defective. Inside the control module of the ice maker is a thermostat that monitors the temperature of the ice mold (ice tray). We hope this helps. Please contact us at any time
