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.

Had a water leak on that valve for probably the last 7 or 8 years. Only noticed it when I had a huge water issue with a leaky faucet. Repaired that, went to repair the Sheetrock behind refrigerator and saw water in the tray under frige. Wiggle hose and realized that the reason the water on the front door would only trickle out was because the leak on that valve was also affecting the pressure on the front door. Unreal!! The website and video made it incredibly simple to replace, u guys rock, for real!!!

Freeze and refrigerator sides at times were warmer than normal. Would not dispense water or ice threw door dispenser, also could hear a clicking noise every so often the last about 10 minutes at a time. I think the clicking would start on the main board when it went into the defrost mode. Defrost mo

I followed the video instructions. They were clear and consise. I removed the trim ring and controls. Them removed the housing and flapper. I did notice a small burr in the plastic chute and foam insulation. I trimmed this off with a utility in hopes this burr caused the flapper to warp. This is the 2nd time the flapper has been replaced in 1.5 yrs. The repair was really easy thanks to the video.

Ice maker was making ice but quit dispensing it - the piece at the back of the original ice bucket/auger assembly wore out. Ordered the part from PartSelect.com, received within a couple of days, pulled the old one out, slid the new one in, and it works like new. Service, shipping time and price from PartSelect.com can't be beat.

I pulled the power cord, removed the screws and the cover. After removing the screws from the main control board I unplugged all of the connections from the bad board and plugged them into the new board in the same order. An easy change and a real moneysaver!

The video instructions were outstanding in showing how this repair was to be completed. Follow these instructions and Job was very easy. Replaced ice shute flapper and arm, soloinoid and Micro switch for water flow control. Reassemble by reversing procedure. Follow video instructions on how to replace water control valve in back of fridge. Test water flow at bottom front of fridge and defrost flow tube in door if necessary. I used tupperware container with hot water on top of ice shute shelf in fridge door. A couple of times changing and water was flowing. Great site and detailed video instructions for an effective and cost saving self repair. I saved several service trips and service calls and labor costs of a service tect. Parts costs were also a lot cheaper than service tech would have charged. Thanks PartSelect.

The repair was simple really. Merely a replacement part. After disconnecting the ribbon cables and removing old panel all that was left was to reconnect all 3 ribbon cables and the ground and put the cover back on. Simple even for a girl :-)

Water/Ice dispenser stopped working and clicking noise from freezer

This is a very easy repair. The hardest part was pushing the fridge in and out and having to clean back there!!. Before starting anything, I unplugged the fridge from the wall outlet. I removed 4 nut-drive screws holding the circuit board cover to the back of the fridge. Once the circuit board was exposed, I first compared the current board with the new one to make sure the connections were the same. I did have to use the already existing ground wire (green wire) for the circuit board as the new one provided with the new board had the wrong connectors. I then marked each wire harness from left to right, top to bottom, so I knew what order they were to be reconnected. I then disconnected the 5 wiring harnesses. The hardest part of the repair was removing the board itself. There are 4 plastic connectors holding the board in place. I tried to squeeze them with the pliers, but the board would not come off. I then watched the online video and realized I was squeezing the connectors wrong. After changing how I was squeezing the connectors, the board came out very easily. It was very easy then to snap the new board into place, reconnect the wires, and plug in the fridge. I did test everything before replacing the cover just in case I needed to reconnect something, etc. All in all, this repair took maybe 30 minutes, but that included time to gather the tools, pull out the fridge, clean behind the fridge, replace the board, test the system, and push the fridge back into place. Very Easy
