Removed a total of 12 screws, unplugged the control boards, plugged-in the new control boards and replaced the 12 screws.The FAQs section of the PartSelect troubleshooting guide helped me correctly identify the control boards as the source of the problem. The LED sequence was the key to identifying the problem.

I was ready to spend the $$$ on a repair person when my wife (smart woman) suggested I go on line to see if we can fix it ourselves. I (luckly) found your company and your website made it easy to find the right part plus as an extra bonus you had a video that showed how to switch out both control boards. To top it off, the package came so fast ( the next day - even with standard shipping ) I did not think it was the parts. 10 or so minutes with a Phillips screwdriver and we were back in business. THANK YOU ! ! ! !

I did not have voltmeter to test for problem. Internet sites suggested the most common problem is the circuit boards--a sender and a receiver which detect when the ice bucket is full. I could only buy as a pair (about $94). I removed two screws of cover of receiving unit, detached the coupler, replaced the circuit board. Icemaker now works. The sender was obviously still good.

A repairman wanted $600.00 to fix our ice maker. I paid him $88.00 for his "service call" & asked him to leave. I ordered & replaced the ice maker machine & the ice maker still would not work, so I replaced the 2 optics boards next. Replacing the ice maker was most challenging because the plug is so hard to get at, but the 2 optics boards were pretty easy. Just watch the video on PartSelect.com. Work slowly & take your time when pulling out & replacing the optics boards. There were a total of 6 screws for the 2 optics boards. It took me approximately 10 minutes to replace both boards, & now my ice maker is working perfectly! I am thrilled!!

I called in a repairman, who wasn't sure what the problem was but suggested it "might" be the electronic control boards. He charged me $55 for the service call, which I initially thought was reasonable. Then I found your website purely accidentally. I watched the video several times and read all of the comments posted. I then decided I would wait to see what the repairman would quote me for the part and the additional labor charge. He told me the part was $125. and the additional service charge was another $75. I decided to order the part, which arrived in 2 days. I am a woman who has never repaired anything on my own, but I decided to take a chance with this. It took me about 20 to 30 minutes to install both parts and within a few hours the first ice cubes fell. I was so proud of myself and very pleased that I found your website. The price of the part was reasonable, the video was very straightforward and all of the comments were extremely helpful. Thank you.

1. I first confirmed that the problem was a bad Infrared Ice making control board (Watched flashing of red light on right side of freezer - solid light would not occur when holding flap on left side of freezer). 2. I unplugged refridg,3. unscrewed both sides of the control unit and disconnected wire clips to the electronic boards. 4.popped in new Boards on both sides and connected clips onto each board. 5. Screwed the boards and covers to walls of freezer. 6. Plugged power back into wall and checked Red light again (when holding flap in, a continuous red light verified it would work). closed freezer and shortly ice was being made. Simple process. (careful using Screwdriver to help take wire off of boards - a small clip holds wire clip on - you need to stick screwdriver into back of clip while unconnecting). Easy and my ice worked perfectly.
