Question:

The light,water dispenser and ice dispenser all stopped working at same time , when light stopped working, in the past, the freezer door ( pull out type ) was not shut completely. Thank you for your add, because it helped find the switch which was frozen open, i had to tap it shut, the switch moves freely now but still the three systems will not work. I don`t think i broke anything in the switch but don`t know what the freezing and shutting the door hard could do the switch. The video with your add. Is a door freezer, mine is a drawer type, will your switch fit the drawer type and is the replacement the same as the video ??? thank you !

While closing the door, the light switch fouled, resulting in the switch breaking

I used a flat screwdriver and released the lock tab on the bottom of the light switch, and pried the switch out, being careful to not damage the plastic around the mounting place of the switch, unplugged wiring from old switch, plugged in the new one and pushed the new switch into place. Job finished light switch now working.

My freezer kept icing up and the light switch was broken

I carefully took the clear plastic piece out of the top of the refrigerator. I removed two screws, unsnapped the white plastic cover and unplugged the old defrost timer and plugged in the new one. I then replaced everything in reverse order.

Switch broke and would not light the refrig compart

The repair descripition was accurate. The difficult part was getting the old switch out. It has a release clip that is hard to reach. It took several tries and a bit of force to get the old part to release from the cabinet.

In stalling the new part was easer that the instructions explaned. There was no need to split the original plug. I unplugged the old switch, plugged in the new and snapped it into place. 30 seconds after I started the reinstall it was in the cabinet and working

Light switch had broken off and so the light would not go on when the door was opened. Vegetable crisper drawer had broken along the sides.

We unplugged the refrigerator, used a knife to pry out the old switch. Cut the extra prong off of the new switch and connected the switch to the wire connectors. Slid the switch back into place plugged the refrigerator back into the outlet and . . . . . . Wah, lah, the light and switch worked again. We washed and then simply slid the vegetable crisper into the holder and replaced the one that had broken. This was a really great experience and it was quick and easy to fix on our own.!

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!

Light hinge broke

Repair was tremendously easy. All I did was remove old light switch by prying out with screw driver and plugging in the new light switch and pushing it into the hole. Simple! The instructions weren't needed, but they were very thorough.

Broken refrigerator compartment light switch.

The best part of the repair was how easy it was to find and order the part. Instead of searching the parts houses around town I just went to the PartSelect web site, quickly found and ordered the part in about five minutes, received the part the next day at my home and was ready to make the repair. Wow! What a pleasure for something to work the way it was meant to. Removed old switch located by prying out with sharp knife or screwdriver. Don't worry about breaking it or cracking plastic. Disconnect(unplug) wires from back of switch. Replace (plug-in) wires on back of new switch. Insert in location of old switch. Finisheed.
