This part has been re-designed 3 times already and the newest part number for your unit is now(###) ###-#### So it's quite a common issue to fail, but part(###) ###-####is one of the older versions. You will want to order part number(###) ###-#### I've seen this new part fail as well but not as much as it's prior versions. I'm sorry about the bad news.
