It started with a trip from a repairman who came out and diagnosed the problems as being the mother board on the fridge and the spray arm on the dishwasher. He then took my money for parts and dissapeared. Knowing what I needed I decided it couldn't be rocket science so I order the parts myself from part select. The parts arrived per shipment method and at first I was a little concerned because the mother board I received looked different than the one I was replacing. After verifying it was the correct part I powered off fridge unhooked connectors and plugged them into the new board. Grounded it with screw, plugged it back in and it is working great. The spray arm was even easier. All this and I'm a woman :) From now on when my appliances break I will check here first before I call a rip off repairman. Still trying to get my money back but no complaints about PartSelect.
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.
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.
Valve wasn't closing completely, replaced ALL valves I'm already in there). Got a pair of valves as spares too. Motherboard went AWOL...as a computer engineer it was a simple diagnosis....replace ..the broken Auger?....that was user error...Housekeeper put an ice pack in the ice drawer...you can just imagine the consequences. How easy was it?.....SO easy little hint....don't bother to wrestle the hoses off the valves...just cut them flush with the valve body....there's plenty of hose to spare. If you're a younger person you can do it in 15 mins
