The refrigerator light went out and a bulb replacement did not correct. Also the temperature indicators were not on. There was a clicking noise each time the door was opened, coming from the back lower corner of the refrigerator. The repair man said it would be $500+ to fix! We found the board on this website. Consult the manual for where this is located, but on my model it was on the refrigerator side, in the back on the floor level. In a white plastic box the size of the board +. It is located on the lower left on the side of the cabinet. Unplug the refrigerator from the wall, remove the back cardboard cover. Remove the box, and the board comes out, open the box, inside there are 3 connections and a holding clip. Replace the board and put it back in. The put the box back in to the refrigerator. We kept the old one for a couple of days because the components had been changed since our refrigerator was made, but it functions exactly the same. Piece of cake! Saved $400!
