First I unplugged the refrigerator.
Then I removed the drip tray to gain access to the three screws that supported the module cover. The three screws were rusted into place and required a square No. 1 bit to remove. Once I finally found the right bit that fit, with much effort, I removed the three rusted screws and the module being careful to unplug the circuit board cable from the module back.
I used a NON magnetic screwdriver to remove the 4 screws that held the circuit board on the back of the module cover. I removed the cover, power board, carrier and light module and put it on the new module cover I also bought (because it was broke due to the rusting of the screws). I made sure I stayed in full contact with the circuit board and module cover at the same time to avoid static discharge from the new board from the static wrapper to the module cover because static discharge may damage the fragile microchips in the new board.
Once the pieces were in place, I put back on the back cover and 4 screws with a NON magnetic screwdriver.
I pealed the Module cover lable off the old cover and pressed it on the new module cover. (A new sticker cover cost more than a circuit board).
I reattached the circuit board cable and replaced the module. I screwed in three new phillip screws and placed back in the drip tray.
I plugged in the refrigerator and no more problem with the Ice and water maker being intermitten.
