Excellent easy to follow video. Had expected a hassle but whole repair was very smooth and everything worked as shown in video. Sure beats impossible to follow drawings. My wife was amazed I could do it...usually I can't fix anything!

WAY EASY! Very cost affected. Very frustrating that the peg used to secure the chef's pantry cover is molded into the side piece. Bad design by Amana but PartSelect helps make it a easy, cheap repair if it breaks off. This piece broke VERY easily as it is a little flimsy.

I went online entered the make and model. The drawings were very helpful. I was able to find the part I needed. I ordered it and it was delivered in about 4 days. I replaced the old part very easily. I couldn't believe how easy it was. I most likely saved about $200 doing it myself.

I used a knife blade to slip under the edge of old switch to pray it out of the hole it was inserted into, switched the wires and replaced the new switch into the same hole. It took about five minutes!

I snapped the cover plate to the filter open. Pulled the filter down and twisted counter clock wise to take filter out. I installed the new filter in by inserting the filter and tuning clock wise to secure the filter. I flushed the water for about two minutes and then allowed it to be put back into service.

Went on the internet to find someone else with the same problem. I have over 30 Years of Heavy Industrial Air Cond and Refrigeration experience. The troubleshooting was no problem to find the the Control Board failure. Just didn't want to spend $300.00 on the control board on a 3 yr old Stainless Steel side be side Refrigerator. Then we had to wait 6 days for the darn part to arrive. The real difficulty was finding out we had to reprogram the new control board. No directions to reprogram main Control Board came with the part. Also we could not find the original owners manual. (Put up so we could find it later--Right). Had to go to the internet and Google to find the instructions to program the new Control Board. With the CODE #. What a mess.... But we now have cold Ice Cream and Momma is happy.
