Yesterday my refrigerator stopped cooling. As stated in the title, the ice maker still spins, water dispenses, all the lights come on. It's not cooling, and the LED panel inside the refrigerator that shows/controls all the temps is dead. I assume it must be some control board somewhere, but 'm not sure where to even start.

As far as last year, as long as I left the filter disconnected, the water dispenser worked fine. So I've just lived without a filter.

As for this year's issue, that's what I was afraid of. I don't think it makes sense to spend $400 on a new board for a 10 year old refrigerator with a sorta broken water dispenser.

Thanks for the update on last years thread.

I agree with you, since your refrigerator is 10 years old it would make better sense to save the repair money and buy a new refrigerator, Black Friday sales are still going on for home appliances.
