Hello I have an american style fridge freezer - GZ2626GEKW

Resolved Question:

Hello
I have an american style fridge freezer - GZ2626GEKW Serial No 11636490JA.
The switch on the top right hand side of the fridge has broken so that the light no longer comes on and off when the door is opened/closed.
Is this replaceable and is it something we can do ourselves or do we need an engineer?
Thanks

Hi sorry to hear that.
This fortunately is easy to replace with just a few basic hand tools.
The best place to get the switch is from this site: http://www.4maytag.co.uk/
It is best to call them to be sure you get the correct part the first time;-)
Also they don't list all their parts on the site.
I will assist you with the installation when you have the part as well.
I have included their phone information here for your convenience:

Hello, my name is George..

The switch and it is:
Maytag : LIGHT SWITCH EMB601 50E3u 2 TAG £7.20

The switch can be fitted by disconnecting the power, prising the switch from the housing, disconnecting the two wires from the switch and reconnecting them to the new switch, then re-inserting the switch into the recess on the housing.
