Remove light lens by pushing straight back (needs some oomph, but not too much). Remove control housing by prying spring clips in back of housing with thin screwdriver or knife. Remove old control board by releasing plastic clips on both sections and removing 2 wiring plugs. Be careful snapping new control board in ; the alignment of the 4 switches and the 2 readouts is critical - easy to hang up a switch. Snap the control housing back into place, making sure that it is all the way in. Position the light lens so that it is lined up and about 1/2" back and then slide it forward (toward you) into place. The instruction sheet calls the refrigerator section the "fresh food" section. There are 2 light switches, one for each door. Both have to held down to get light to go out and enter programming mode. Easiest to close the right door, then push left door switch and quickly push the freezer DOWN button 3 times. Follow the instructions to set the program on the display and then push AND HOLD the freezer DOWN button until the display starts flashing. Release the freezer DOWN button, close the doors, open the doors to check. Display will indicate two 4s. (that was what mine indicated). Done.

This is the 2nd Jazz board that we replaced in 2 years. We believe that a power surge caused the board to no longer work. We now have the fridge plugged into a surge protector. The instruction sheet to program the jazz board did NOT come with this part. I called Parts Select and they gave me a number for Whirlpool. I spent over 30 mins. talking to Whirlpool, 2 different departments, and they do not have instructions for this part. I was told that they only supply instructions for about 10% of the parts that they distribute. I was able to find the instruction sheet on my own but searching "whirlpool instruction 16022940." I hope this helps!

After several defrost thermocouple replacements, and determining the frig was running constantly, the freezer was not freezing, but full of ice behind the back panel, the frig was not chilling, the entire refrigerator was constantly running, non-stop, and after doing a bit more research on-line, I d

Thanks for the control board. However, it arrived in two days not overnight, UPS noted on their tracking site the error was their own. Also, the part did not come with installation instructions or programming instructions. Found on youtube a video that described in detail the programming procedure: . . . . . very helpful.

Thanks,
Marc

I initially thought the defrost heater or sensor were bad and replaced them. About a week later the problem reappeared. I ordered the control board assembly and after arrival I did the following: Went on-line, located the part on the fridge parts diagrams and figured out how to remove the controller cover (use two flat screwdrivers from behind). After the cover removal unplug the two connectors and lift out the sensor from its mount. Remove the LED Display/Button Board then the microcontroller board. They literally lift out. With the new controller you have to gently break the display board from the controller - the board is scribed along the break-away area. Do this on a flat surface. The actual board installation and hook-up took less than 5 minutes to reassemble. MAKE SURE THE REFRIGERATOR IS UMPLUGGED - I should have said that FIRST.

UNPLUG the unit from the wall plug. Slide out enough to access the fiber panel at the bottom. Remove the six screws from the panel with a nut driver. Slide the electrical cord upward out of the slot and remove the panel. The start device and run capacitor can be found on the left side of the compressor. Using a flat screw driver, insert between the capacitor and the retaining clip and twist the screwdriver to remove the clip. Observe the orientation of these devices to replace with new ones. Unplug these two together from the compressor. Then disconnect the electrical two-prong plug from these devices. Replace with the new ones, being careful not to bend the two spade connectors on the start device.

Refrigerator and freezer stopped cooling. Compressor pump not coming on

I removed the cover panel. There is a clip that holds the relay and capacitor to the pump. Use a screwdriver to pry it off. Unplug the relay. The capacitor is plugged into the relay and they come together which was a surprise, I thought I only ordered the relay. Unplug a cable from the relay. Insert that cable into the new relay and plug it into the compressor. Reattach the clip. One be important instruction. Unplug the refrigerator for at least 8 hours before installation to allow the compressor to cool down. I tried first without allowing the compressor to cool and it did not work. After letting it cool I tried again and it worked like charm. Make sure the refrigerator is unplugged when doing the repair

After unplugging the refrigerator, I removed the lower rear access panel that exposed the condenser and the overload/relay start capacitor with 1/4" nut driver (6 total). Next, I unplugged the wire harness and spring loaded keeper with needle nose pliers. Then I pulled the overload/relay start capacitor out of the 3 pronged male receptor located on the side of the condenser and plugged in the new one. Replaced the keeper, plugged the harness back in, and replaced the panel. Very easy fix.

Simple replacement of the icemaker solved the problem. I suspect the icemaker was overfilling resulting in water flowing into the ice reservoir.

I've been messing around with the old part for literally years. Every now and then the metal agitator rod would spin out of the plastic cup that joins it to the freezer. I'd have to disassemble it and try to get it back into alignment. This time nothing worked, so I ordered a new assembly. It arrived even more promptly than PartSelect predicted and it installed in five minutes. I couldn't be happier!

Ice Maker not making ice

This was about 10 time easier than I had expected (I'm in my 30s, a mom). I put this off for almost a year groaning that I would have to spend tons of money on a repair man. It was really no big deal and took under 30 minutes. I used the video from PartsSelect, and it was right on. I was initially worried because the description from the website said that the new ice maker didn't come with the 'harness" and I had no idea what that was. Its just the little set of wires that easy unclips from the old unit and pops right into the new unit. Mine was reusable, so pretty easy. The only minor issue I had was that the new bracket didn't line up comepletely with the hole in the fridge where the screw went in, but I solved that with adding a skinny washer. Would definetly recommend any common-sensed person to do this repair yourself.

I couldn't believe how easy it was since I am not the handiest guy. All it look was to switch over the wires and screw it to the inside of the freezer. I was back in business.
