My refrigerator light blinks off and on when I open the door. Would that be the switch or the light socket?
For model number TBX21JASNRAD
Hello Norm, Thanks for your question. This is typically due to the light switch, part number PS8758429. It can be tested with a multimeter to see if it has continuity; replace it if it has no electrical continuity. If it does test positively, consider replacing the socket. I hope this helps.

My fridge stopped working completely, light and all wont work, no humming sound or anything. Outlet is good, there is no tripped breaker, any suggestions on what i could do. Does replacing the relay help in any kind of way???
For model number TBX18AABQRWW
Hi Gustavo, Thank you for your question. It may. I would suggest testing both your relay and your run capacitor. You can test both of those parts with a multi meter to be sure. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

Yesterday, i noticed the freezer and the refrigerator were both not freezing or cold. The fan is running, etc. But all is not cooling. What would cause this.
For model number 200D3367P001
Hello Mark, thank you for writing. For this symptom you will want to consider either the Temperature Control, the Electronic Control Board, or the Temperature Sensor. Unfortunately the number you provided is not recognized as a model number. We will need the model number for your refrigerator to locate the correct replacements for you.

Hello Dennis, thank you for your question. The light socket is installed by following steps. Unplug the refrigerator. Remove the light bulb from old socket and unsnap the old light socket and pull it out just enough to disconnect the electrical plug that plugs into the socket . Connect the wires to the new socket and snap the socket housing back into the fridge. The bulb can then be replaced and you are good to go! I hope this helps!

My good bulbs for the light don't work. What shall i do? Can i trouble shoot for a new light socket?
For model number HTS18GBSARWW
Hi Beverly, Thank you for your question. You could test your light socket with a multi meter. If the meter does not move when you test the part, then your socket is the issue and it will have to be replaced. Good luck with your repair.

No power to the fan and compressor
I have a fridge in my garage. I have found that a glass of ice water or a cold drink outside is very important to me. When I discovered melting ice dripping onto the garage floor I was very upset. I spun the fridge and found that the compressor and fan weren't starting. I got out my multi-meter and discovered that power was not making it to these components. I did some research and found the wiring diagram online. There really isn't too much going on with a fridge and the most likely candidate seemed to be the run capacitor. I ordered the part, replaced it in a few minutes and the fridge began working again.

Light switch inside refrigerator wasn't working
First turned off power and removed top shelf.
Then I used a flathead to slowly pry the switch out by the two sides. You just anlge ita bit and it slideds out easily. Then I disconnected the wires from the old switch, connected the new one and installed the new switch by snapping it back into the cutout.

Light in the refrigerator went out
After I bought what I thought I needed for the repair. I asked a friend to come over and look at it. He changed the
the light socket and put the same light bulb in and it works great. I am returning the light switch but decided to keep the light bulb.

Getting on the internet was so easy. This was really very simple. Thank you for making what I thought would be a big ordeal into something very simple.

Leaking from bottom of refrigerator and no ice/ ight out in freezer
To repair the light socket which was not functioning, I identified and followed the instructions on part-select on you tube. I unplugged the refrigerator, cleared away and removed the shelf below the housing for the light. I reached up under the plastic light protector with a screwdriver and popped up the tab on the front holding it in place. Then I easily pulled out the defective socket. I reversed the process and popped the new one in to replace the old, screwed in the light bulb, put the shelf back, plugged the fridge in and was finished. This took only about 5-10 minutes. To repair, and replace the dual inlet-water valve, I pulled the refrigerator out and removed all the nuts protecting the back at the bottom. I unplugged the fridge and turned the water switch at the wall to off. I once again had identified the problem by the symptoms on part-select, ordered the part and watched and followed the repair on part-select on you-tube. There are a variety of nuts and bolts to remove the protective housing and then get to the water inlet valve unit at the back left bottom side. It doesn't take long. I unplugged the two electrical lines holding the water inlet valve in place, I unscrewed the bolt in the center on top and the two valves underneath that are the three water lines from the water in the refrigerator back to the unit and on to the ice maker. I replaced the unit as instructed and started to reconnect the hoses. At that time, I noticed that the hose from the unit to the ice maker was a little brittle at the end. So, I suggest you check all your hoses as well when you identify the same problem. I decided it would be best to replace the hose as well and ordered the ice water hose from part select. I left the water off and put the fridge back. The ice maker hose replacement came quickly, in 2 days. Then I simply pulkled it out and replaced that ice water line in about a minute, reversed putting back the rest of he screws that hols everything in place, closed up the unit, plugged the fridge in, turned on the water valve at the wall and put the refrigerator back in to place. This process, if uninterrupted, would take about 30 -45 minutes. Everything is working good as new now. I probably saved myself at least 150 dollars, had the satisfaction of fixing it and learned something myself about how the whole thing functions. Part select is a find!
