Hi....Bob here... I see you are having a problem with your fridge..Not difficulty to remove the switch..To remove the switch pry it forward at one side ,pull it straight out....You can click on the links below and order online..There are two switches..Just match the one you remove to the picture below...You will not be able to buy at the hardware store...You can do this yourself..

I appreciate the answer, however, my husband informs me that yesterday - before the light went out, he found a little puddle of water on the floor outside the refrigerator side of the unit. (We have the freezer on left, fridge on right.) You think this may be more than a door switch or a compounded issue?

You have two issues.Which on this forum you would normally have to open two separate questions..The water is from the defrost drain backing up in the freezer..The drain is located in the middle behind the INSIDE freezer wall..Most likely it is frozen solid..So the water has no where else to go but on the floor every time the unit goes into defrost mode...Please make sure you use the accept option today before you leave for my time helping you..Thanks Bob
