Replace main control board

Unplug the refrigerator from the wall plug and take the plate off of the circuit board in the back of the refrigerator. Remove the screws holding the board in place. Remove the board by pinching the little white pins holding the board inplace. Disconnect the wires from the circuit board and install the new board in its place. Notice the wire prongs so that they are connected the same as they were on the previous board. Replace the screws that hold the cover. Plug it in. If it does not turn on, remove the plug from the wall and re insert it. The new board has to reset itself.

CustomerKirk from Rio Rancho NM

Ice/water dispenser would not work and refrigerator stopped cooling

The first and most important step was to diagnose the problem. To do this I found the Parts Select website and the part I thought was the problem. The previous repairs stories helped me to pin point the problem. The mother board came within a couple of days. All I had to do was take the back plate/guard off, unplug the connectors in the back, unclip the mother board and then do the reverse over again. The only problem was the ground wire. I had to take the one off that came with the part and switch it out with the old one, because it would not connect to my refrigerator. This was fairly simple and in about 30 min. I was done and had our refrigerator back. Luckily we had another in the garage as a back up so we didn't loose any food.

Our icemaker quit dispensing ice through the door. Then the water would only dispense intermittently.

First, I removed the four screws holding the auger motor and solenoid in place. After testing the solenoid as good I replaced it and did more research. I was having several symptoms so was unsure which part or parts were bad. I spent $50 on a service call and got the diagnosis of a bad main board. I ordered the part and got it two days later. After removing the several screws from the rear panel it was so easy to remove and replace the board. Plugged it back in and it worked perfectly.

Relay on may circuit board would not kick-in

I took the 3 screws off the cover that is in the back of the appliance, unpluged the plugs that attached to the circuit board pressed the 4 plastic pins that held the old board. Then I snapped the new board in place and pluged the plugs back into the new board. They will only go on one way so you cannot get the plug in the wrong place, Job done appliance works fine. thanks

CustomerJeffrey from Downingtown PA

Warm interior - evaporator (inside) fan failed

I found this failure at midnight, was able to determine loss of voltage at J2 Pin 3 to 4, causing the fan failure. Jumpering with a staple from Pin 5 to 4 allowed the evap fan to run from the condensor fan supply for the few days waiting for the part. Not pretty, but it saved the food. Running like that forced the evap fan to high speed, so I had to set the thermostats lower (higher temp)

1. To un-mount the board, use needle nose to gently squeeze plastic bayonets one at a time and lift that corner clear.
2. Mark each connector J1, J3, J4, J2, J5 to match the mark on the old board
3. Gently work each connector off, replace board, and re-land each connector. The new board will have a ground wire. Just trap the lug under the upper left cover plate screw..

Refrigerator kept turning off and on

I easily removed the screws and then removed the board and took a picture so I would remember how to re-connect it. It was really easy and now my refrigerator is working great. If I can do it anyone can do it. My husband was amazed that I did it all by myself.

Fridge too warm, evaporator icing up

Replaced these parts and didn't fix the problem. Had to replace the temperature sensor. The fix could have been a $10 rather than $160, but I didn't know how to test the components individually. But it is fixed now!

The board and heater plug right in. For the Defrost Thermostat (or thermistor?) I had to cut 2 wires, crimp the new wires to the old ones and seal up. Then attach to evaporator. Thanks for the help this site provided.

Customerkyle from frenchville ME

Compressor would not run long enough to cool the freezer.

I found an online thread where someone else's fridge had similar symptoms as mine. 1.)Freezer would warm up to room temperature followed by the fridge. 2.)Compressor would not start once the freezer got above the set temperature. 3.)I would unplug the unit, wait a minute, & plug it back, but the compressor would only run for a few minutes. I removed the main control board and found that it appeared that one of the solders had shorted to the metal compartment that it is installed in. This connection, which was for the control board relay switch, was melted away and was not letting the board start the compressor when the temp. would rise. I ordered a new board which was delivered very quickly, installed it, and everything works fine now. Saved a lot of money over having someone else look at it or buying a new fridge. Changing the board was very easy since each connector has a different number of pins. It is imposible to plug them into the wrong spot.

Compressor stoped running with no warning or noise.

Opened the back panel and removed the old board and replaced it with the new one. The new board had a couple of extra connectors that are not used. Replaced the cover and turned it back on, everything was working fine after that. This is the second refrigerator that has lost the main board in a month, Putting surge suppressors on both.
