Your directions were clear. When I took the control off the left side of the freezer compartment the resister burnt the plastic so badly that I had to pry cover loose. This may be a problem for others. Thanks from this "Do-it-yourselfer".

I checked the trouble shooting guide with the refrigerator and all signs pointed to the Electronic control boards that sense when the ice tray is full. After reading what other customer posted on this site I ordered the parts. I received the parts in two days time and had a harvest of ice within minutes of installing it. Thanks PartSelect. Scott

Installation was extremely easy for a novice. However, I previously replaced the icemaker control and motor assembly. That did not solve the problem. I now replaced the electronic control boards - emitter and receiver. The operational test shows the emitter and receiver are functioning properly yet the ice maker still does not work.

After determining by the flashing light code what the problem was, I ordered the parts. Once the parts arrived, it took 15 minutes to install them by the instructions that came with them and two hours later I was making ice again. Very easy repair and there is a video on the website that shows exactly how to do it.

Did exactly what the video showed . First I went through the test procedure to conferm my boards were bad . But ice maker didn't work after the control boards were replaced. I did some more research to find out what the problem now could be. I discovered where the water goes into the ice tray the line was frozen. Got the hair dryer out and melted the ice that had the water restricted. Been making ice every since. I tell everybody about (part select) web. Sight now
