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.

No ice production.

We had cleaned the electronic eyes off several times which yielded one or two days of ice production. Since we could tell the ice maker was receiving water and producing ice we went ahead and replaced the controller. Now the ice maker is working like a champ. The instructions were easy to follow and the part was delivered quickly. Unplugged the fridge. Three screws on opposite sides of the freezer, plug in the emitter and receiver boards and replace the screws. Plug the fridge back in and away it went.

I followed the instructions on the information sheet provided as well as watching a demo video on YouTube. Actual replacement of the emitter and receiver boards took only 5 minutes, but I was not sure it was working till I could here the ice maker harvesting the cubes. Still wanted to be sure so I kept an eye on it for a few hours. Each time I looked in there was more ice. I am so glad I found your website. Parts were about $106. Labor would have cost that much and the repair guy I talked to on the phone said he would probably have to replace the whole unit.

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.

Followed the Partselect instructions - removed door, removed old cam and replaced with new cam. One lesson learned. There are two cams - one that sits on hinge below door and one that is up inside bottom of door. If you are replacing one, replace them both.

Unscrewed the rear water valve and water line, and front water filter which allowed me to remove the old drip tray. New drip tray is smaller than the original tray, so I needed to put blocking in to keep tray under drip spout. Refastened the water filter, water valve and water line.

freezer and refrigerator compartments not cold enough

Used the suggested problem list here to narrow down that the repair was most likely the run capacitor. Poped the new one in and I now have better control of my compartment ranges. I have a temperature gauge in each compartment. Check them every opening of the doors.

Heard a five second buzzing sound repeated 4 or 5 times per cycle coming from rear lower left compressor side.

Removed the six screws holding the bottom access plate found at the rear of the refrigerator. This gives you easy access to the run capacitor that has a retaining clip. Remove the wire clip and pull out the capacitor (it has two quick disconnect terminals). Reverse the process using the new run capacitor to complete the repair.
