Just wanted to say thanks to those who came up with the fix. (pigtail red/yellow to solid black) Worked great and saved me 100 bucks.
At the wiring harness near the center of the frig (behind the cardboard in the back) 3 wires come out from the body of the frige and goin the main harness. I cut the yellow/rd wire and taped the end that goes to the control box. I refed the other end (that goes into the connector leading into the frig body) by splicing it into the black wire located in the harness. This black wire is a 120v feed from the power cord.
What my fix did (I think) was reduce the load on the board and bypass the function that turns the light on and off while keeping the function that turns the display on and off. It also resulted in a kiss from my wife.:thumbsup:
