Ice maker was side mount instead of rear mount as shown in previous insructions. Removed one screw and slide ice maker forward. used flat head screw driver to undo the ice maker plug. The ice maker came right out. Removed old ice maker fill cup and put it on the new ice maker. Slide the new ice maker into place and used the same screw to secure it. Pluged it in and turned on the ice maker. Had new ice in a couple of hours. It comes with a round plug to square plug adapter, new fill cup and fill tube, all of which I didn't use.

  • Customer: Dan from Decatur GA
  • Difficulty: Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Had to remove all the covers and fans to expose the condenser, which was difficult as the parts were frozen to it. The styrofoam covering the condenser made it almost impossible to defrost it. Therefore, I ripped the styrofoam off to expose the condenser. Was not really difficult to fix the styrofoam cover using metal tape. Replaced temperature sensor in aluminum block, and used butyl sealant to secure. Had to also re-install parts of ice-ball kit that were not well covered. Lots of parts to keep track of, but anyone could do it.

First determined my modle did not require any of the wire mods descibed on the instructions. Removed power and three cover plate screws. Removed board connectors. Calapsed board anchors and removed board. Removed existing ground wire from board. Installed ground wire on new board and installed board on four mounts. installed connectors and replaced cover and screws. I did wear playtex gloves so as not to cause a static short and wipe out the new board. Took off the bottom panel and cleaned condensor fan cage while I had the fridge out. Secured, plugged in fridge, works real fine, lasts a long time.

The Part Select videos made the repair super easy. Monkey see -monkey do. One thing that should be stated more strongly is that you need to UNPLUG THE APPLIANCE SO YOU DON'T SHORT OUT THE MOTHERBOARD. Accidentally shorting out the motherboard makes the repair much more expensive.

The main control board is situated at the rear of the freezer bottom right hand side there are about 12 screws holding the cover in place a nut driver is perfect to speed up removal of this cover. At this stage you can see several plugs on the board remove as many of these as you can with the board still place however there are couple which cannot be removed with the board in place be careful not to pull on the wires when removing the pugs(don't worry about where they go as they are all different and will only go in one location) The main board is held in place by four nylon stand off posts with barb retainer clips to remove these you must squeeze the barb in with some pliers and lift the board at the same time I did the two at one end then the two at the other end once you have removed the board remove the remaining plugs the power in and the plug on the left hand edge of the board. The new board I received was slightly different to mine as it can be used on several models of freezers be sure to read the instruction that come with the new board to ensure you remove or install links as stated in the installation notes. Again you cannot get the plugs in the wrong place as they are different I was able to install most of the plugs prior to fitting the board on the stand off posts at this point care must taken to ensure all of the bunches cables are going to be clear of the cover this was most time consuming as there is a lot of extra wire, once this was completed I replaced the cover with a nut driver and tested the freezer with a thermometer placed in the freezer compartment after about 30 minutes the temperature started dropping (the compressor sounded different more powerful!! all done.

I had called "Affordable Appliance" to send a repairman to assess our problem. A horrible man - rude, dirty, taciturn - came to our house. He took the cover off of the panel on the back of the fridge. He determined that the master control board had to be replaced. He demanded $630.00 to replace that part. I said "no thanks" and sent him on his way. I then called Part Select and ordered that same part. It cost $155.00 + shipping & handling. It arrived the very next day and I installed it in very few minutes and it is working perfectly. The gentleman who answered the phone at Part Select could not have been more helpful. He was wonderful.

Heard a buzzing noise, smelled burnt electrical, unit stopped running but had internal lights. No temp. control functions.

Looked for source of burnt electrical smell. Strong odor from where circuit board is located. Removed board and found black burn area on back side of board. Ordered new circuit board and crossed my fingers nothing else was wrong. Replaced and works like a champ. $150 repair beats $2000 replacement every time. Wife not so thrilled. Was hoping for new refrigerator.
