I looked at the parts diagram from partsselect.com and watched the short video. This was a huge help and made the installation of the new part actually easy. I removed the thermostat control panel from the top portion of the refrigerator side with a 1/4" nut driver and then removed the defrost control board with a philips head screwdriver. I then replaced the part and put everything back in place. The only problem I had was trying to get the thermostat control panel back onto the front clips.I would recommend partsselect.com to anyone. The refrigerator/freezer works great now. Thanks again. Chris

I vacuumed the back and underneath, hoping it will solve the problem, but after about 2 weeks of hoping I succumbed.... finding the proper wrench was the most time consuming. After removing the screws, the face plate removal was the most challenging. You have to pry the top part carefully away (we used a knife), after it just drops down. Used a flat screw driver to loosen the wire harness, after that the rest was less than child's play. We are still in the testing mode, but so far so good. Freezer freezes, ice maker drops the ice cubes (not melting), fridge is humming. Wish us good luck.

I was amazed how easy it was to replace this control board. I printed the pictures and instructions for the part that were on your site. There was a video for another part and it allowed me to get familiar with the layout of my unit. Thank you very much.

It was so simnple that I let my wife do the repair. All she had to do was to turn of the water supply and unplug the refrig. loosen two screws on top and remove one screw on the bottom of the ice maker. Gentle tilt the unit in order to unplug the electric connection on the rear of the unit and then take it out. The new unit went back the same way in reverse order.

The repair man came out and said the Ice Maker is broken.He said to call him when I get the part but after looking at the video it took 10 minutes to Install. If you can use a screw driver this part is a piece of cake. Oh don't forget to unplug the frig. God Luck John Bronx NY

I replaced the ice maker with a new one. All part were included. The cost was about $200.00 cheaper than what the repair person wanted.

Ice maker would fill with water and make ice but would not dispense ice.

Ice maker is held on by two clips and one screw. Removed old ice maker and unplugged wiring harness. It appeared normal. Since it was 15 years old and a brand new one was only a little more than $100 I decided to just replace it. Shopped online and got best price here. Delivered promptly. Item description said it did not come with wiring harness, but mine came with three different ones. However my wiring harness had a different molded plastic connector where it is plugged into the back of the freezer so I could not just pop it off and pop in the new one. Instead I had to reuse my old one. No problem, since the harness was not damaged anyway. Also I had to reposition the harness clip on the new ice maker and remove the plastic tab on the bottom and re use the tab from my existing ice maker. The tab on the new ice maker would not line up with the hole in the freezer. All in all it took about 10 minutes total to switch the two units out. Extremely simple job, do not pay someone to do this for you.
