How is this part AP2071638 installed-I know to turn off the water and unplug-after the 4 screws are removed-does the old board just snap out and new one just snap in?
Answer Hello. Yes, after the screws are removed and the wires are disconnected, you will unsnapp the old board and snap in the new one. Thanks.

Our ice maker will fill with water but cycles too quickly to freeze. Would it be the control board or the ice maker itself that we would need to replace? Thank you
Answer Hello A.J.,
You should check the fill level of the icemaker. If it only fills partially, the icemaker thermostat in the far end will not get water to it and it will measure the air temperature in the freezer compartment. This will cause the icemaker to cycle before the ice is completely frozen. This would be caused by low water pressure or a failing water valve WR57X10051. If the ice mold is filling all the way, you will need to replace the icemaker assembly WR30X10093.
How do you check the control board? The icemaker works but the water doesn't. I have checked everything else. There is no water coming out of the valve to the water tank.
Answer Hello Richard,
If you have proper water pressure to the water valve from the home water supply and the valve is not opening when energized, the issue will be the water valve WR57X10026.
Does this board come with the little finger tabs that attach to the two sliders?
Answer Hello Marc. The board comes as pictured on the parts page. You will need to order the knobs for the sliders if they are needed.
Ice dispenser dispenses crushed ice on both crushed ice setting AND cube setting. Does the relay on the control board control this function? I would think the relay would be bad before the switch. Thanks.
The most likely cause for the unit to dispense crushed on both settings would be a faulty crush/cube solenoid. You will want to pull the ice bin out and then remove the auger motor housing and check the solenoid which sits next to the auger motor.
The water dispenser comes on whenever it wants, even if indicator knob is for ice. Do I need a new control board? I have to keep a glass in the dispenser to capture water when I'm not around.
Answer Hello Timothy,
This could be one of several scenarios. There could be a harness issue at the door hinge. There could be a dispense switch WR23X366 corrupted with drink splatter, or the dispense board WR55X129 could have an issue.
