This was not very difficult, but did take a little more time than expected because once I removed the lower back cardboard panel I decided to clean all the dust out with a vacuum and wet rag. First thing to do is slowly pull out the frig. Then make sure you unplug it! At the bottom is a rectangular cardboard backing. Take a nut driver and remove, look to your left of the compressor and you will see a small square white plastic box. Carefully unsnap. Inside you will see the control panel. At the top center you will see a plastic piece that holds the control panel in place. Pull up gently until it releases. Next unplug the 3 wire harnesses, then plug in the new one and put it back. All done.
