I have a Samsung RL60GQERS Fridge/Freezer and the LED read

Resolved Question:

I have a Samsung RL60GQERS Fridge/Freezer and the LED read outs on the Control Panel are failing. How easy is it to remove the existing panel (does it just pop out) and insert a new replacement.

George-Allsorts :

Hello, my name is***** be patient whilst awaiting any responses as I'm not constantly available.

I notice this question has been open for some hours.. Do you still require assistance?

Customer:

As you note I've not had any response, so yes I do still need an answer.

George-Allsorts :

On the control panel cover there are two self tapping screws, they are sometimes hidden behind plastic covers either side of the display... Can you see them?

George-Allsorts :

Once you have undone them, the outer cover will come away to reveal the inner cover

George-Allsorts :

Once this inner cover is removed you will then see two screws to remove the LED assembly

George-Allsorts :

Re-assembly is in reverse

George-Allsorts :

Please remember to rate my assistance

Customer:

I have lifted off the plastic cover, but there are no screws visible.

George-Allsorts :

So what can you see now.. the inner plastic cover?

George-Allsorts :

There are no screws for the inner cover.. that should just come away.. the other screws are on the LED PCB

Here are some diagrams to help you

Customer:

George, many thanks. Yes once I have removed the plastic cover I can see the black inner frame. I will take another closer look tomorrow and attempt to lift it to see if the screws are then visible. Are you ok for me to sign off tomorrow?

George-Allsorts :

If that is what you wish.. I will be here even once you have signed off .. so if you need to ask me a question, please feel free

Customer:

Hi George, I've managed to release the control unit and can see the two screws which secure the electronic card.

Customer:

Sorry pressed the return bar to soon! So I'm going to order the part and replace. Your help has been invaluable and I'll fill in the rating now. Thanks again.
