I replaced the thermostat, temperature sensor, and the run capacitor. . . Refrigerator still not cooling. I checked the start relay and measured the input terminals on the compressor for the correct resistance. . . Everything measured correctly. In a last ditch effort before calling for service, I pulled the main board, inspected it and saw the problem right away. One leg on the compression capacitor had desoldered itself. Got out my soldering iron and applied a good amount of solder to that point. Put everything back together and turn it on. . . Problem fixed. The compressor kicked on right away and started cooling the refrigerator.

Refrigerator and freezer stopped working, only inside lights on

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.

Had a water leak on that valve for probably the last 7 or 8 years. Only noticed it when I had a huge water issue with a leaky faucet. Repaired that, went to repair the Sheetrock behind refrigerator and saw water in the tray under frige. Wiggle hose and realized that the reason the water on the front door would only trickle out was because the leak on that valve was also affecting the pressure on the front door. Unreal!! The website and video made it incredibly simple to replace, u guys rock, for real!!!

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

I followed the video instructions. They were clear and consise. I removed the trim ring and controls. Them removed the housing and flapper. I did notice a small burr in the plastic chute and foam insulation. I trimmed this off with a utility in hopes this burr caused the flapper to warp. This is the 2nd time the flapper has been replaced in 1.5 yrs. The repair was really easy thanks to the video.
