I diagnosed the problem easily because my refrigerator lights would not come on when the door was opened and the control LEDs (temp setting for freezer and refrigerator side) were not lighted. It was as easy as ordering the part (it arrived in a couple of days), moving the refrigerator out from the wall, removing 6 or 7 quarter inch hex head screws (this was the only part that needed a tool), opening a plastic box, taking out the board (it is just snapped in place) removing 3 or 4 wire plugs (don't worry about confusing them, they are keyed and all are different from each other), then reversing the process. The whole thing took about 10 minutes. The hardest part was cleaning up the dust and dirt that had built up behind and under the appliance itself. It was a piece of cake. I figure I save over a $150!
