Default Re: Refrigerator Control Board WPW10310240

Well, add me to the list of those thanking you for the very valuable info about changing the caps to repair the control board. You just saved me $398 for a new control board. I removed and tested all 4 caps and found one to be non functioning. I received the new caps yesterday, tested them before soldering them in. Installed the board in the fridge, plugged it in, and voila!!! We are back up and running.

EDIT: For those who are newbies like me, make sure you note polarity and position of the leads of the existing caps so you can install the new ones with positive to the positive hole on the board, and negative to the negative hole on the board. my understanding is that reversing them is not a good idea. On my board at least, the holes were two different sizes, with the hole for the negative lead being slightly elongated. This may not be the case for other boards, so ensure you verify.
