First I shut off the water to the refrigerator and unpluged the electrical cord. Then I unsnapped the cover to the control board assembly located above the ice/water selector knob. Then removed four screws holding the control board assembly. Then I tilted the assembly out far enough to unplug the two sets of wires connected to the control board. Then I removed the two screws holding the control board to the plastic assembly. You are then able to lift the control board out of the assembly. Be careful tilting out the assembly. I pulled too hard and removed the whole thing from the refrigerator which disconnected the ice/water actuator lever and I had some problems getting it re-installed correctly. Installation is basically the reverse of removal. I suggest testing it before snapping back on the final cover plate. I wouldn't recommend trying this repair unless you've done some kind of basic automotive or appliance repair... you can always try it and call a repairman if you get stuck. Good luck!
