Seems like a common problem from other reviews. Mine happened at 2AM on a Saturday. The freezer continued to work, fridge did not. I was able to take the 2 screws off the front plate (under water catch) and unplug the wires on right hand side to stop flapper from flaping. Real easy repair to replace HV board. Justunplu the unit and remove small silver cover from back of fridge, disconnect the bad one and put in the old one- 4 connections. Plug back in fridge and then follow program instructions included. Back up and running within 15 minutes of getting the part. Pay the extra for overnight delivery unless you want to live out of a cooler for 2-3 days.
