Is this a job an average homeowner can do himself? I am only moderately skilled at mechanical repairs, but not an expert.

well as far as replacing it the wires are plug and play. in other words just switch the wire plugs to the new board and your all set. it goes right in through the back and is not difficult to install, just remove number 11 on this diagram to access. thanks and very best wishes, Bryan
