My Repair & Advice
This is a generic error code. Usually indicates the main control board (circuit card behind lower left kick panel) is bad. The ordered part is an updated suitable substitute for the original part that requires adapter harnesses (come with the part). This communicates with the display board on the freezer door. YOU MUST REPLACE BOTH THE CONTROL BOARD & THE DISPLAY BOARD AT THE SAME TIME. If you only replace the main control board, your frig will be dead, not even power up. The board is not bad, it just needs a new display board to communicate with successfully. Replace both. Trust me, or try just one first and prove it for yourself. The hardest part of this repair is the main control board location (if you're replacing it too, see above), tilting the refrigerator back and keeping it safely stable while you access the underside. The rest is cake. Also, when removing the freezer door trim to access the display board, use a thin plastic scraper to pry the trim out until the clips pop loose. Plastic will not scratch the finish of the freezer door.
