Based on the site, I figured the problem was the electronics board or the defrost sensor. After some multimeter work, I was pretty sure that it was the board; however, the defrost sensor was inexpensive so I bought both. I watched the videos, and the work was pretty much the way it was described. No problems or unforeseen issues.

Had a repairman come out and quote me over $600 to replace the control panel and the display. I went online and found you guys, watched the video, and replaced the control panel in less than 15 minutes. Your video was great and gave very clear instructions - unplugged the fridge, unscrewed the panel on the back, popped off the control panel and connectors using needle-nose plyers, put new control panel in place and reconnected all the plug-ins, put cover panel back on, plugged fridge in, reconnected and checked display inside front of fridge, it came on and lit up, closed the door and let the fridge cool to the proper temp. The fridge is now working great for around $175 for parts. Thanks!

The water and ice dispenser suddenly stopped working. The light in the dispenser would dim whenever we tried to get water or ice.

I pulled the power cord, removed the screws and the cover. After removing the screws from the main control board I unplugged all of the connections from the bad board and plugged them into the new board in the same order. An easy change and a real moneysaver!

Freeze and refrigerator sides at times were warmer than normal. Would not dispense water or ice threw door dispenser, also could hear a clicking noise every so often the last about 10 minutes at a time. I think the clicking would start on the main board when it went into the defrost mode. Defrost mo

Really easy to change the board..I did spend more time trying to figure it out how to plug the ground wire, as the new board had different wires to ground. What i did was i switch the ground wires from the old board and put them in the new board. Problem solved, refrigerator and freezer running like new.

Tempeature in fresh food section was unstable and dropped below 32F frequently. Service technician had previously replaced the two temperature sensors but this did not remedy the problem. I decided to replace the main control board and this seems to have have resolved the problem.

I did an internet search on the issue, which was that my refrigerator suddenly stopped dispensing ice and water through the door. Also, the refrigerator had been cycling on and off constantly for some time. I found a YouTube video showing how to replace the main control board; along with a link to order the new part. I ordered the part and selected standard shipping. My part arrived in 48 hours. I replaced the main control board just like in the video. My refrigerator works like new now. I was able to solve my problem in two days on my own, for the cost of parts only. I am sold on PartSelect.com.

I pulled cover off back that housed the board. Unplugged all the wires that went to the board. wires will only fit in one spot so you cannot mess it up. snapped it off the pegs, then replaced new board in same spot. hooked plugs back up and installed ground wire. covered it back up plugged it in and it ran.
