Appliance Repair Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello, Thank you for using this service, I will be helping you with your problem today
How long have you had this refrigerator? since this is having some many issues the issue is most likely the main control board, the main control board has relays that run everything. when refrigerators have multiple problems like yours is the chances of 3-4 different things going bad around the same time are rare at best. its usually the control. this is an expensive part around $240.00 it would probably be best to have a tech look at this or you can try the board, theres no way to test the boards unfortunately. as you can see by this wiring diagram everything goes back the board. these are a horror show to trace issues with.
I can't find my invoice for the refrig. I beleive it was bought 4-5 years ago. I understand that you feel the panel needs to be replaced at $240 plus service labor. Having looked on line at complaints about this refrigerator, the panel is the biggest issue. One reporter cited an 880 panel part back order. As I am writing the control panel is flashing on and off, the ice dispenser door is opening and closing and a whirring noise is going on and off in sync with the flashing lights. My wife reports that this has occurred several times in the past, sometimes lasting for hours. It has so far corrected itself in time.
I would like to attempt the repair. I am fairly handy and I and I make loudspeakers for a hobby, so I am familiar with electronic wiring. How would I take off and replace the panel? I don't see any screws or tabs. Are there any tricks?
