Called the repairman. He told me it was $80.00 to come look at it and determine what was wrong. I told him what was wrong but he told me that he would have to check it and then they would send a repairman to fix it. Total phone repair estimate if I was right was $450.00 to ?. I went ahead and ordered the part from PartSelect even though I have zero expertise in this kind of repair. The part arrived in two days. With trepidation, I pulled the refrig away from the wall, unpluged the electric, and removed the cover plate on the back (10"x10" bright metal plate).I Followed the directions that were sent and replaced the board. Total time for this part of the job was 15 minutes. Programming the board was a little harder for me and it took me about an hour to figure it out. Well worth what little effort it actually took, $300 bucks in my pocket not the repair guy's.
