Introduction

These steps are very similar to the steps for push button replacement. The only difference between these two guides are the solder points. Pay close attention to the pictures to make sure that you will be removing the solder from the correct points.

  • Locate the piece on the black plastic trim that is opposite from where the hinges were. Carefully, pry this piece from the bottom to get the tab from behind the stainless steel to in front of the steel as shown.

  • Next, you must remove the upper black trim which is connected to the inside liner with tabs. To do this you must hold the interior walls still, while rotating the trim so that the tabs line up with the slots. (tabs cannot be seen at this point, pics are to give you an idea of what you cannot see inside the device)

  • These pictures identify the LED's along with their corresponding solder points through the back of the circuit board.

  • Heat each point with the soldering iron while pulling the LED out from the front in order to remove the lights. The arrow in the picture points to the + sign above the left solder point. Each of the LED solder points will have one. LED's are polarity sensitive; therefore, the positive pin on the new LED must match up to the positive solder point.
