Cooling compartment is out but the freezer is icy

For I am not good at the English so that I am some what difficult to show my repairing procedure and here what I do as follow but at first I rely on The PartSelect Diagram in order finding out which component might be defective. My opinion to the problem is Thermalstat Sensor so that I proceeded to check if it was defective. I used Ohm meter measure the internal switch contact from the sensor and see that it is active. And after that I have turned my doubt to The electronic board controller. It is this, the culprit. The malfunction in the Board.
If you had your experience in Electronic repairing, you would simply done the replacement for the larger Capacitor from the Board. Contrarily you should perform the replacement for whole Electronic Board. Thank you to PartSelect for provided Diagram to Customer.

We can't seem to get the dripping water stopped when the water fills the ice maker. The large hole in the plastic we covered, but it still drips some. So we may try epoxy. An easy job we thought, but we have this water problem.

A friend had no problem getting the new ice maker in. But then the problems started. The ice maker works great. But when the water fills the ice maker it squirts water onto the side of the freezer and ice sickles form. So we watched and decided the hole was too large so used a piece of plastic. That helped to cover the hole. But some water is still entering the freezer and not all going to the ice maker. The only other thing we can think to try is to use epoxy to try to close that place. A simple job has turned into a big headache. I wish they made the ice maker like the original one.

No cooling,no temp LED display,clicking noise.

Always unplug your appliance for safety reasons first. Remove the 4 screws on the Main panel cover. It is about 6" X 8". Mine was on the left hand side as you face the BACK of the refridgerator. Follow the instructions that come with the part for your appliance. Ours has 4 plastic pop tabs, be very careful not to break these. With a pair of pliers, squeeze the tabs together and carefully pull each corner foward. Replace the new board and put all of the plugs back in the correct places. Put the cover back on and replace the screws. Plug your appliance back in. Not a bad repair. It was just the problem of the several different issues including the refridgerator not cooling. Our freezer was still very cold and would make ice. The first thing we had was a condenser fan motor. This fan is ran by the main board. Then the display in the fridge didn't work all of the time. Finally it was not cooling properly. As we were replacing the main board, we noticed a few variances in the two. It appears to have some different transistors and some have been added. It is my opinion that this was a factory default part.

Ice and Water Dispenser Broken and Constant Clicking Sound

  • Customer: JOSH from Auburn, AL
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Socket set

The ice and water dispenser seemed to be not working because of some sort of power failure because the lights would dim when the dispenser was activated. Also it got to the point that a continuous clicking noise would come on when the fan kicked on. I took the casing off the back of the frig and examined the computer board only to find the clicking noise coming from a component toward the bottom of the board with what looked like a switch on it. Which made sense, so I came on here and read other reviews, ordered this part, it came in a few days, I replaced it with ease, and everything started working again. If you've ever worked with any type of computer board or components this will be a breeze, if not, it'll take a little more figuring out, but still easy. Ask a friends who's comfortable around computer boards to come over and do it before you call a repair guy.

ice maker and water dispenser stopped working and the fridge made a clicking sou nd as if something was turning on and off, got online and read faqs determined I needed a new mother board. nd

Had a repairman come out and quote me over $600 to replace the control panel and the display. I went online and found you guys, watched the video, and replaced the control panel in less than 15 minutes. Your video was great and gave very clear instructions - unplugged the fridge, unscrewed the panel on the back, popped off the control panel and connectors using needle-nose plyers, put new control panel in place and reconnected all the plug-ins, put cover panel back on, plugged fridge in, reconnected and checked display inside front of fridge, it came on and lit up, closed the door and let the fridge cool to the proper temp. The fridge is now working great for around $175 for parts. Thanks!

Freezer And Frig Both Warm And Compressor Would Not Run

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.
