Always unplug your appliance for safety reasons first. Remove the 4 screws on the Main panel cover. It is about 6" X 8". Mine was on the left hand side as you face the BACK of the refridgerator. Follow the instructions that come with the part for your appliance. Ours has 4 plastic pop tabs, be very careful not to break these. With a pair of pliers, squeeze the tabs together and carefully pull each corner foward. Replace the new board and put all of the plugs back in the correct places. Put the cover back on and replace the screws. Plug your appliance back in. Not a bad repair. It was just the problem of the several different issues including the refridgerator not cooling. Our freezer was still very cold and would make ice. The first thing we had was a condenser fan motor. This fan is ran by the main board. Then the display in the fridge didn't work all of the time. Finally it was not cooling properly. As we were replacing the main board, we noticed a few variances in the two. It appears to have some different transistors and some have been added. It is my opinion that this was a factory default part.
