I almost ordered the Door Led Board but read where somone else had the same problem and ordered the HV control board. Pulled the refrigerator out to gain access to the back of it. Safety tip make sure you unplug it. Located the HV Control board, release the wire connectors from it, and simply replace the board. Plug it in and follow the directions which come with the new HV board on programing it. Entering the Code off the units Data plate.

I had to cut off the old yoke since the threads had stripped and it would not come off. Once I did that all I had to do was to remove 4 screws on the auger motor and replace it with the new auger motor. Then I put the yoke on the new auger motor shaft and then put the unit back in the freezer. Work time was less than 15 minutes with no problems.

Removed the back cover for the HV Board. Unplugged the cables from the old board, put the new board in the same exact way, connected the cables. Put the back cover back on. The hardest part was the programming. You may need to read it again in order to figure it out, but not too difficult. Face it there are only so many buttons, eventually you will go "AH-HA" ! I saved myself around $250! I will most definately use this site if I have other appliances that do not work! You guys rock!

Honestly, so simple . Removed the fruit / veggie drawers, glass shelf and the supports for that shelf. Couple of screws and nuts and it was off. As stated before... the most "thought goes into attaching the linkage for the temp adjustment on the right side . GREAT opportunity to CLEAN the up the fridge a bit!! Parts Select made this such a no brainer. Their Customer Service was really an added bonus!!

you need to take the deli drawer out, make sure your flat head screw driver is large enough for the head of the screw as screwing into the plastic is a bit difficult. Other than that there are 2 screws and its pretty easy.

take out two nut driver screws remove piece, take off track two philips head screws. transfer temp control rod, really easy then put track back on and install piece. probable took as long to remove the two veg crispers and glass top. this is a very easy fix. i did notice that the pin on the original was about 3/8 of an inch forward so flapper door did not quite line up and im sure caused the pin to snap off. the replacement part, the pin is exactly the same position as the other side. i believe the original was defective from the mfgr.

Lights flashing on door and ice cube door opening and closing constantly

The repair was quite easy. I had already removed the panel cover on the rear and removed the plastic cover several days before that. I had also pulled the wire harness that went to the upper left connector that has allowed the refrigerator to operate without the flashing lights while the part was enroute. I unplugged the refrigerator, disconnected the remaining connectors, and popped the old electronic control board out. I had to be very careful here as the plastic snaps that held it in were very hard to spread apart and I did not want to break one. Put in the new board, reconnected all of the wiring harnesses (each has a different pattern so you cannot mix them up). I plugged the refrigerator in and using the code from the label on the upper right hand side of the refrigerator and the instructions that came with the new board, I programmed the correct code in and everything was operational. Put the covers back on and went back to work. I did all of this in a 15 minute break between teleconference calls.
