I followed the video and advice from the many others on this site and only have a few additional comments. First, the decorative cover on the front of the old unit is held on with two plastic teeth on the top and bottom of the cover. This was not at all apparent and it took me awhile to figure it out. I used a sharp knife to pry up the top edge until the teeth lost their grip on the metal notches in the old unit. Second, don't try to pull the cables out of the front of the old unit before removing that cover. It is held in with a plastic snap that must be depressed after the cover is removed. The video does a good job explaining how to remove the old metal arm and attach it to the new unit so that it will recognize the ice level in the bucket. Finally, don't bother looking around the web site for a button that enables you to add to these comments. You'll be contacted by email in a week or two for that.

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!

Remove the shelves and the other trays. Use the nutdriver to extract the screws and the panel. Pay attention to the orientation of plastic parts when replacing plastic slides to avoid breaking the plastic slide components. Avoiding too much stress on plastic parts is important.

I watched the video on line first. I shut off the power to the refreigerator. I took the one screw out on the bottom of the ice-maker and pushed up on the ice maker. Than I disconnected the power harness inside the refrigerator. I took it out and changed out the harness from the old one to the new one and also the bar that dumps the ice. I reconnectected the harness to the back of the refrigerator, made sure that the water spout lined up correctly. Pushed the ice maker down on the screws and reconnected the screw that I had removed. Waited about 1 hour and had ice cubes. This was an easy process after watching the video.

I removed all drawers (including the two above the repair site, removed the left side end cap - it was help in place with only two screws (one screw hole appears never to have had a screw).
