I received the new board 6 days after making order. Very simple task. Unplug refrigerator. Removed 3 screws holding cover on back panel. Disconnected 4 wiring harness/connectors. Using needle nose pliers, I compressed the 4 plastic tabs that hold the board to the frame. I did one tab at a time and as I compressed the tab, I pulled the board away from the tab. I connected the harness/connectors to the new board before mounting on tabs. The new board had been updated and had 6 areas for connectors, just match the correct connectors to plugs, they only fit one way. Install cover plate, but remember to connect the new ground wire (green) to one of the cover mounting screws. Plug in unit and and give atleast 12 hours prior to adjusting the tempature controls.

luckly i have a bit of experience in refrigeration im an hvac technician by trade. this repair was a bit tricky in that i did not know at first if it was a Temperature Sensor issue or the main control board. I had tested the defrost termination thermostat and the defrost heater and as i suspected they were ok. Next i wanted to test the thermistors (temp sensors) it is hard to find technical data on these fridges. I needed to test the thermistors resistance @ a certian temperature to ensure they were working properly but where do u get such data? I also wanted to know some information about the logic programmed into the board (i.e when do you initiate defrost etc. . .). I had no such luck so i figured since i tested the defrost heater and thermostat and they were ok and all of the evap fans and such were working i'd order a circuit board and new thermistors. Got the CORRECT PARTS from this site in 2 business days and my fridge is working great! changing the parts was really easy, figuring out which parts to change was the only difficult thing about this job.

Super easy, had my 15 year old do it (with my supervision).
Followed very clear Instructions that come with the replacement...
But, he could not get to the plug location until he removed 4 screws holding the motor assembly that spins the ice in the drawer and moved it out of the way...
Followed the rest of the instructions...
Works like a charm.

No need to shut off the water supply. A pair of pliers was required to remove the old filter, and the new one went in with just a quarter turn. It locked in place with no water drips. Less than 5 minutes to install.

Installing the actual ice maker was quite easy. What takes most of the time is preparing the freezer for the install. Need to remove all shelving, (and the door) to gain access to the unit. The ice maker is simple to install once access is achieved. Putting everything back together takes some time.

I spent 15 - 20 minutes just hunting/deciding which of several sets of parts & directions to follow. The provided directions were not bad; but none of them quite matched my GE ADORA side-by-side model. Once I came up with the actions I would need to take...I was done in 5 minutes! The kit , as I said, came with all the parts one could need (and one or two un-needed parts included for other model GE refrigerators) I am very happy with PART SELECT...altough GE doesn't rate as high with me for their declining reliability.
