This was not very difficult, but did take a little more time than expected because once I removed the lower back cardboard panel I decided to clean all the dust out with a vacuum and wet rag. First thing to do is slowly pull out the frig. Then make sure you unplug it! At the bottom is a rectangular cardboard backing. Take a nut driver and remove, look to your left of the compressor and you will see a small square white plastic box. Carefully unsnap. Inside you will see the control panel. At the top center you will see a plastic piece that holds the control panel in place. Pull up gently until it releases. Next unplug the 3 wire harnesses, then plug in the new one and put it back. All done.

Making enough space for yourself to work on the floor behind the fridge and reach in to the lower left (looking from the back) will make the whole thing easier. Unplugged. Removed cardboard panel from bottom of back, held by hex screws. Located the "white box" against the left inside wall. Moved wire bundle out of the way and removed cover from the box. While pressing up on retainer tab, pulled old board out, then removed connectors. Placed new board into the white box, snapping it in under the retainer tab. Then inserted connectors. Avoided touching anything on the board except the connector sockets. Replaced cover then replaced wire bundle, then replaced back panel.

Refrigerator light & temp control panel not working

  • Customer: Rob from Urbandale IA
  • Difficulty: Really easy

First of all, I should mention I am not handy at all I found this repair to be VERY easy. The most difficult part was trying to figure out where the control board was. First, I removed the cardboard protective cover from the back of the refrigerator and identified that the control board was in the white plastic protective box on the far left side of the unit. To remove the cover from the white box there is a clip on the top and the bottom that you need to press to release the lid. Once you have the cover off, there is another clip inside the box at the top that holds the control board in place. Press that and pull the existing control board out and disconnect the 3 plugs. Then simply plug those into the new control board and replace everything. Fixed my issue and everything works great! When I looked at my old control board I could see a very small burn mark on it and this apparently is what had gone bad on the board. Hope this helps - good luck!

Extremely simple especially after watching the video. Makes me think about why I did not attempt my own appliance repairs in the past. Big time savings! Thanks. P. S. excellent delivery service from Parts Select.

First of all, I am a female. So anyone can do this.I simple watched your video. Made the repair very simple. I was surprised that it really worked. I couldn't understand that if the door would still eject ice, why it wouldn't make the ice. It's the same motor. Anyway, It worked and I thank you very much. Very satisfied.
