I have a model # JF42CXFXDB01 refrigerator. It stopped

Customer Question
I have a model...

I have a model # JF42CXFXDB01 refrigerator. It stopped running. the control panel went dead. If you press start it lights up for a second and then shuts down again. Any suggestions?

Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model of the fridge? And can you guesstimate how old is it?

I just gave you the make and model. It is 9 years old.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

If I can, I am pretty good with mechanical and electrical work.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

That is it.

Unfortunately the control board will need to be replaced to fix this problem.
