W10503278 Control Board – Service & Replacement Info
The W10503278 control board is found on some Whirlpool built refrigerators with the freezer on the bottom. It can be found in Admiral, Amana, Jenn Air, Kenmore, Kitchen Aid, Maytag, and Whirlpool brand refrigerators. This control board controls most of the main functions on the refrigerator. It takes the place of a defrost timer and controls the automatic defrost cycle. It also controls the compressor, refrigerator & freezer temperatures, and the evaporator and condenser fan motors.
How To Replace The W10503278 Control Board
First, unplug the refrigerator before working on it.
Then remove the light cover by sliding it towards the back of the refrigerator.
Next depress the two tabs through the two slots on the back side of the light housing with a flat head screw driver. This will allow the control board housing to flip down. Then remove the two wire connectors to the control board.
Now depress the two tabs that lock in the two separate sections of the control board. Remove the old control board, and re-install the new control board.
The new control board comes as one piece, and you will have to snap the board at the break line to separate the new control board into two pieces before installing. Once this is done, you can re-install everything in the reverse order.
With the new control panel installed, you will need to follow these instructions to program the control board to work with your refrigerator.
