We had been told at some point the main control board would need replacement, due to various system issues with the refrigerator. The total repair cost would have been close to $400. The cost of the board was less than half of that cost. The instructions provided by PartSelect were very good. There was also a video of a similar model of refrigerator that outlined and showed every thing step by step. I removed the screws from the access panel in the back of the unit. unplugged the electrical plugs, removed the board. Installed the new board, reinstalled the plugs (all were idiot proof as PartSelect indicated), reinstalled the access panel and plugged the refrigerator back in. It has worked like new since install. This is an excellent website and service. I will use it again as needed with all my appliances.

I received the new board 6 days after making order. Very simple task. Unplug refrigerator. Removed 3 screws holding cover on back panel. Disconnected 4 wiring harness/connectors. Using needle nose pliers, I compressed the 4 plastic tabs that hold the board to the frame. I did one tab at a time and as I compressed the tab, I pulled the board away from the tab. I connected the harness/connectors to the new board before mounting on tabs. The new board had been updated and had 6 areas for connectors, just match the correct connectors to plugs, they only fit one way. Install cover plate, but remember to connect the new ground wire (green) to one of the cover mounting screws. Plug in unit and and give atleast 12 hours prior to adjusting the tempature controls.

Refrigerator would stop. Could hear clicking from the computer board. Could spin fan and it would start again. Ice dispenser stopped working. If you hit the dispenser the motor would stop and start clicking again

Pulled the refidgerator from the wall. Unplugged the refrigerator. Took cover off the back where the mother board was. Took a picture of all wiring with my phone just to be safe. Unplugged all wires. Used pliars to release the four white plastic pins to remove the board. Reinstalled the board in reverse order. Put cover back on the back. Plugged in the refrigerator to check if it worked. It came right on and now my water and ice dispenser all work like they should. Very easy to do! These guys make it easy! Bottom line! It'll save you money!

Watched the how-to video and then followed the steps. After unplugging the refrigerator I removed the main control board cover, disconnected the wiring plugs and the removed the old control board.

I follow the instructions on your video to change the mother board and the Ice auger motor. The repair was as easy as the video and just as simple....Thank you.

The Fridge & Freezer side were not getting cold. Also, the ice maker light would not work (not the bulb) and buttons wouldn't respond intermittently.

Unplugged the unit from the wall and pulled it out enough to gain to the panel on the rear of the appliance to the main control board. Even though it was not necessary, I took pics with my phone to be sure I would get it all reconnected back right. Removed all wires from the old control board being careful not pull wires from the connectors. Some were a bit stubborn to remove, but eventually they all relented and came off. Removed the old board from the retaining clips. After examination of the board, it definitely showed signs of an electrical short/burn on the back. Inserted new board onto the retaining clips. The new board was slightly different from the original and came with instructions that should not be ignored. Depending on the model of your appliance there may be wires to cut. I didn't cut the wire though, I just removed it from the clip and taped it. Reassembled all remaining connectors on the board and moved to the front of the freezer to replace the Defrost Thermostat and Temp Sensor. Removed all shelving and light cover to gain access to the screws needed to remove the panel covering the area needed. Located the thermostat and by the looks of it, it definitely needed replacing as well. Disconnected thermostat from the coil line it was clipped to. Cut the wires and reconnected the new thermostat. I don't know if it was necessary or not, but I went ahead and replaced the temp sensor that was also located near the thermostat. Put it all back together and plugged it in for the test. I like to say this corrected my issues, but I still had a problem. The freezer was working perfectly now, but the fridge side refused to get cold. I eventually fixed that problem as well by installing a defrost heater and a temp sensor on the fridge side.

followed the instructions included with part. Basically removed metal cover, disconnected cables from board, released plastic clips that held board in place, followed instructions included to reconnect. My particular model did not have any wire loom modifications (it tells you if you need to based upon your model number prefix)

I started by Googling what causes a refrigerator to stop working. Step by step, I learned about a refrigerator components. Compressor, relay, capacitor, were good. Took the mother board out and noticed that portion of the back of it had blackened. I immediately remembered that we had two short power outages that day. Ordered the board through PartSelect- regular shipping. To my surprise I received the part in less than two days. Installed the mother board and cleaned up the area in 15 minutes. It's been 2 week since installation, and everything is good. FYI, now the refrigerator is on a 2150 Joules surge protector.

Freezer too cold where it caused the internal door water line to freeze.

First tried the temperature sensor. Unfortunately, that did not correct the problem. Replaced the main control board and that did the trick. Before the freezer would go down to -10 to -20 now to the normal -5 to -10 range. Both repairs were simple following the directions.

Refrigerator stopped cooling

I watched the video that was provided by PartSelect. The process could not have been more straight-forward. After unplugging the fridge from the wall outlet, i unscrewed the 9 or so screws that attached the plate covering the circuit board, I carefully unplugged each of the wiring plugs that were attached to the circuit board, except for the plug providing power to the board. That one I was unable to unplug while the board was still attached to fridge. I then used a pair of needle-nosed pliers to release the 4 plastic clips that held the circuit board in place and removed the unit from its housing. I was then able to unplug the one remaining wiring plug. The new board had a slightly different design, so attaching the power to the board was easily done after mounting the new board onto the plastic clips. The entire process took me less than 5 minutes. I plugged the fridge back into the wall outlet and my refrigerator came back to life! Thank you PartSelect for helping to make the task so simple and straight-forward!
