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.

Would not cool.

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.

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!

Replace main control board .Problem solved.

Freezer defrosting; Temp Controls inoperable; Clicking sounds; lights on. Unplugging and then plugging back in would be a temporary fix, then it would revert to defrosting. Ice and water dispensers inoperable.

Replacing the main control board was not difficult. When I received the order confirmation from partselect.com they included a link to their repairman video for the part replacement. Unplug; unscrew the panel; unplug the wired connections from the old control board; do use pliers to squeeze the corner clips that hold the board in place and remove old board. Slide new board over the clips; plug in all the connectors (they each have different number of pins so you can't confuse them); replace the back cover and plug the refrigerator back in. Very quiet now; temperature controls work; freezer works and as an added bonus, the ice and water dispenser is also back in operation. I had thought it was a separate issue, but lo and behold, replacing the main control board fixed everything. Thank you partselect!

The Part Select videos made the repair super easy. Monkey see -monkey do. One thing that should be stated more strongly is that you need to UNPLUG THE APPLIANCE SO YOU DON'T SHORT OUT THE MOTHERBOARD. Accidentally shorting out the motherboard makes the repair much more expensive.

First determined my modle did not require any of the wire mods descibed on the instructions. Removed power and three cover plate screws. Removed board connectors. Calapsed board anchors and removed board. Removed existing ground wire from board. Installed ground wire on new board and installed board on four mounts. installed connectors and replaced cover and screws. I did wear playtex gloves so as not to cause a static short and wipe out the new board. Took off the bottom panel and cleaned condensor fan cage while I had the fridge out. Secured, plugged in fridge, works real fine, lasts a long time.
