Thank you for choosing ManageMyLife.com. I understand how important it is to be able to replace your door properly.  You can tape the tip of a flat-tip screwdriver with masking tape to prevent scratching, and carefully pry out of the bottom part of the electronic control to snap it out of the door. I have included an image below.
If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services

Desirea, You were WRONG. If I did it the way you advised, I would have broke the plastic housing for the digital display. Luckily I figured out the proper way to do it without damaging anything.

I have just replaced the electronic control (number 79 on the diagram) and I agree with Robert. To remove the display, carefully lift the metallic sticker (number 57) just enough to expose the screws on the front of the display. The plastic panel (number 77) can then be removed by unplugging the wire on the electronic control. All of this can be done from the front of the freezer door. DO NOT try to pry the plastic panel off; it must be unscrewed.

Just to add to the above, the drawing does not clearly show the 2 screws that need to be removed to gain access to the control board. They are at the right and left edges of the applique (item 57 in the drawing) which can be peeled back from the right and left siders. they are only half an inch in, and can be accessed without removing the applique completely (however, I took it all the way off to minimize damage/marring. Once these screws are undone, the rest is very straight forward.

The problem with the display is often caused by a failed main control board (part 216979700). This control board is at the bottom of the freezer near the compressor. I recommend that you unplug the freezer and check the wiring connections between the display and the control board. The main control board also controls the compressor. If the compressor is cycling off and not maintaining the temperature properly then this also points to a failed control board. A problem with the thermistor (temperature sensor) could also cause this type of problem. The image below shows the wiring diagram for this freezer. You can view the parts diagram on the Sears PartsDirect website.

If the compressor is running constantly but the freezer won't cool down properly then you likely have a weak compressor or a sealed system problem. This type of failure will require a service technician. Here is a link for the Sears Service website: Sears Home Services .

These tips may help you determine the cause of your freezer problem. If you need more help, reply with additional details.

Lyle, thanks for your answer. Based on your response it seems like the main control board is the best place to start. I was not able to find a part on the Sears sight that was labeled "Main Control Board". Based on the diagram the item that made the most sense was part 216979700 labeled "Electronics" (number 54 on the system diagram). Is this the same part as the main control board? Thanks, David

A:

You are correct. The part number 216979700 (Key 54) is the main control board. I can't guarantee it but replacing this component will likely fix your problem. I am assuming that your compressor is cycling off and not running continuously. If you continue to have problems after replacing this component, then you could have a problem with the compressor or the temperature sensor. Reply with additional details if you need more help.

Lyle, I got the new main control board installed. The front door control panel does not have any lights, so that appears to still not be working. However, the temperature of the freezer has come down considerably and is now around 18 degrees. The part was pretty easy to install, so what is the next part that we should explore replacing? Thanks, david

I am glad to hear that the freezer is cooling with the new control board installed. The board will default to a standard setting when the display control board is bad or disconnected. Unplug the freezer and check the wire harness connection for the user interface on the main control board. If that connection is secure, then you will need to check the wire harness connection on the user interface display control board. The wiring diagram is shown in the image below. You can tape the tip of a flat-tip screwdriver with masking tape and carefully pry out of the bottom part of the electronic control to snap it out of the door. Once the catches are released, carefully pull the control out and check the wire harness connection on the user interface control board. If the wire harness connection is okay, then you will likely need to replace this control board to restore the display and control functions. There is a chance that a damaged wiring harness could be causing this problem. (continued)

I've had this problem of the Electronic Control unit not lite - Problem was corrected by wiggling or Pushing on the wire at the bottom of the door going to the Cont. Unit. THE WIRE IS EITHER FRAYED OR BROKEN AND WILL HAVE TO BE LOCATED ON THE DOOR PANEL.
