It appears your switch has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.




Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question

How to open a glove box door when the latch is broken on


check under the glove box door to see if you can see the hinges. Sometimes you can unscrew the hinges from the bottom. Else you have to knock out the hinge pin on both hinges, open the door from the bottom and see if you can swing the door up to undo the latch.
If this does not work, cut a hole in the bottom ot the glove box, it is usually made of plastic or papier mache, release the latch from inside, then you can remove the plastic box once it is open and replace it with a new one. It will cost you, but it will be less expensive that breaking down the metal door!

How do you install an Ikea kitchen cabinet door hinge?


The new Ikea Sektion door hinges mount in 2 holes that are horizontal. The dimensions for the hole placement are 62 mm up from the outside bottom of the cabinet where the bottom edge of the door will be. The first hole is 20 mm in from the front edge and the second hole is 33 mm from the first hole or 53 mm from the front edge. The holes can be drilled with a 3/16" bit to a depth of 9/16". After the holes are drilled, the plastic plugs on the back of the hinge mounting plate are pushed into the holes with the orientation triangle "arrow" stamped on the front of the mounting plate pointing toward the cabinet opening. After the mounting plate is flush with the surface, the two wood screws are tightened in the plastic plugs to expand the plugs and secure the mounting plate. The door hinge mounted to the door is then clipped onto the mounting plate by first engaging the "hooks" near the door end of the hinge then snapping the back end of the hinge into the clip at the rear of the mounting plate. The location of the door once mounted can be adjusted by turning the three screws on the hinge. The front screw moves the door right and left when closed. The center screw (recessed in the hinge) moves the door up and down. The back screw moves the door closer or farther from the cabinet when closed. The hinges "snap" the door closed, so if the door is too close to the cabinet the hinges can't snap it closed and the door remains ajar. The trick is to adjust the inner screw to move the door farther from the cabinet until it snaps closed. The snap can be strong, and the little bumper plastic disks you can stick to the door to soften the bump work to some extent. The best solution is to install one soft-close Utrusta piston per door. The piston clicks onto the hinge and slowly closes the door the last bit without a bang.

I have a samsung side by side fridge freezer model SRS539HW, the alarm keeps beeping every minute to say the doors are open however they are closed. If I manually pust the door closer button it will...


Solved beeping problem.........Samsung SRS539HW . Have one of these and it is 6 years old. I had to replace the bottom hinge on the fridge side(right). Easy job but now constant beeping as if door is open, and light is intermittent. Found that there is considerable wear on the cable through top hinge of door and one of the wires from a magnetic reed switch in door had broken. I discovered this by shorting the two fine wires (white and pink/white) going to internals of fridge.No more beeping due to door opening and light now working correctly. Of course I no longer get a beep for a valid door open to long but cheaper than getting a refridgerator expert in.

Replace boot gasket


Hello, Remove the door hinges and plastic covers on the unused hinge screw holes on the opposite side of the door opening (door is reversible, so there are places to mount hinges left and right). Front panel will now snap out at top and lift off lower spring clips. One screw on each side will now release top panel and it will hinge up. Prop up with broom handle or something. Now you can get at everything. Rubber gasket is held onto drum with a cable loop and very strong spring. It rolls off the lip easily to disassemble but is VERY difficult to get back on without special tools or at least two people. Door side of rubber gasket is easy in comparison with rubber tabs inserted into slots and working the gasket into a groove. Hose clamp at bottom of rubber gasket to connect drain hose.

Thanks

Our French Door model after almost 2 yrs pops open the one door after closing the other, and it doesn't set off the door alarm because it doesn't pop it open far enough to trigger the alarm. This causes...


We solved this problem by replacing the plastic parts on the top & bottom of the door that 'latch' the door closed.

On the top of each door is a white plastic 'cam' that latches into a receiver at the center point of the refrigerator chamber. One of mine was broken.
Additionally, on the bottom edge of each door is a white plastic hook-shaped 'stopper' that provides spring tension. I replaced both of those and now all is happy.

Microwave handle replacement


How to replace handle on GE Advantium SCA1001DSS.

Remove two screws on top at front in order to remove plastic front vent grill. Then the door lifts off pin hinges. Lay door flat on surface. Plastic trim snaps off with gentle prying (start at bottom middle and bottom hinge side). Then remove six screws holding notched metal section with door latch. This piece will also snap out (several visible clips holding it around edges). Then remove door handle screws, Replace handle and reverse process to put back together.
