Freezer is still working but display went goofy and has quit. To replace does the handle pop off or do u have to take lid apart?
To access the control board you will need to remove the overlay on the handle. There will be 2 screws under the overlay that you will remove to get the handle off. Turn handle over and the control board is on the back.
We have a problem with alarm going off when the freezer is working. We need a manual to review how to reset digital temperatures and alarm. Is there one online? The sears appliance repairman couldn't reset it without a manual. It may be still broken.
Answer Hello Suzanne,
I found a wiring diagram that I can send to you in an e-mail format, but it cannot be posted here. If you could re-post with an e-mail address, we can send it right out to you. You need to check the wiring harness at the bottom of the door to insure there are no frayed wires. Also use a popsicle stick to check that the interior light is going off, (close the door on the popsicle stick and twist the stick to see if the light is on). If these test good, the control will most likely have to be replaced.
How do you remove the outer cover to gain access to this control panel ?
Answer Hello Dave. The cover unsnaps off the front of the freezer door. You can use a flat blade putty or butter knife to do this. Once removed, you can access and replace the control board 216979600. Hope this helps.
