I have very close clearance to a facing island counter, so I removed the door handles using a small allen wrench. I moved the unit out from the cabentry and removed the six or so screws holding on the cover plate for the main circuit board. I labeled the several pin connectors to the board, and used pliers to gently remove them from the old board. The instructions that came with the replacement board discussed cutting wires depending on my specific unit, but it was clear I did not need to do that. I replaced the circuit board and replaced the cover plate. For good measure I vacuumed the dust from the heat exchanger. The repair worked very well as the unit cooled down from a freezer/refigerator temp of 14/40 to -1/35 in a matter of a few hours.
