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!

Found refrig. not working properly. removed back cover to access compressor and condenser fan motor. Fan motor turning very slowly if at all. Compressor tripping thermal overload. Blew out condenser coil of all dust. Figured it was either a circuit board or cond. fan motor. Went online to Parts Direct and read through other blogs of issues with this appliance. I ordered both the fan motor and circuit board. Replaced circuit board first. started it up and fan ran great. Compressor however kept tripping overload. All that overheating stressed that start relay so I disassembled and removed relay and thermal overload. Sure enough, relay was all broken up inside. I put a 3 in 1 hard start kit on it from a local supply house and it now runs great. I will order the new o/l and relay so I can remove hard start kit.

After reading some of the reviews. I bought and replaced the main circuit board. The parts came quickly and the job took very little time. Good time to remove all the panels on the back and clean the dust off everything. Refrig. is running great now! Easy fix! Thanks to all the help.

I first thought of the board because it seems to be the most common problem but after a process of elimination I found it to be the evaporator fan which was relatively easy to disassemble and re-install. I am not a repair man of any sorts but spending $45 is much better that buying a new fridge. All is working well and my wife is happy.JG

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.

We have put up with this noise for several years and finally couldn't take it anymore. After research on the internet and reading about other folks solving the problem by replacing the main board, I ordered the main board and replaced it. That was a week ago. It has been a week blessed with SILENCE from the refrigerator. Hallelujah!!! It was an easy (if expensive) fix and the instructions were spot on. Anyone have a use for a defective main board?
