why is this fridge control board so cheap?

18 posts in this topic

I need a 

W10219463

control board for my Whirlpool Fridge. Everywhere I look, the price is $200 - $350 (for rebuilt I assume). So, what is the deal with this $99 board that appears to be an acceptable replacement?

Thanks (says, In Stock).

That is a rebuilt board-- that's what the trailing "r" in the part number designates.

It's cheaper because that's the way Sears advertises. Check core centric of fix you board board and get it rebuilt correctly.

If its not listed at either site I would contact them and ask. I would never trust Sears for a rebuilt any part.

Good advice, I was assuming it was rebuilt since they no longer make them...apparently. Fixyourboard sounds like it will be in the $2-300 range as well since the board is no longer made, which apparently (why do i use that word?) drives up the cost of repairing it.

Haha. Really man? Corecentric is who rebuilds Sears boards. I work for Sears and all the rebuilts say corecentric solutions. $99 does seem low though.

Sometimes you find boards way cheaper at Sears, (it could very well be pricing error - I would say take advantage of it).  As BryanS said it will be a re-manufactured by CoreCentric Solutions board.

 

Sometimes when you put a part# in the Sears site it will show the same part listed multiple times and sometimes one will be a lot cheaper price for the exact same part.   You used to be able to add the lower priced item to the cart to take advantage of their craziness, you can't anymore.   If you click the lower priced item on the list to add it to your cart then go to checkout you will see the price has updated to the higher price.

 

I've never had a problem with a rebuilt board from CoreCentric.

 

I believe Whirlpool actually uses CoreCentric to rebuild their boards also, if you search Ebay for your part you will find one listed refurbished by Whirlpool, (for $389.99), and if you look at the bar code tag on the board I'm pretty sure it says CCSInc. which would be CoreCentric Solutions Inc.

now seems that Sears won't sell PCB's (nor tech sheets) to the consumer ..

but needs to schedule a service technician for ordering..

 

 

Velllly interestink!  I've seen boards on Sears for about a hundred or so bucks less than other online retailers.  So have some of my customers who were quick to tell me they could get the board from Sears for far less than what I was charging.  I didn't go the extra step to see if Sears would actually sell the board at the fantastically low price they advertised.  Good info to know for the next time this situation comes up.

Good point.  I'll try a test order on a new board.

Funny I found this thread,   I was asking myself the same question.

 

I am doing a test order of 5 boards right now.   Sears has been holding my $500 for nearly two weeks now,  no updates,  no phone calls,  no emails,   no tracking info.    I always assumed that Sears sales tactic is simply listing everything as "in stock,"  regardless of whether it's actually in-stock or not..... i've had this problem before with Sears,  and it also creates problems when a customer thinks I am being untruthful as to the availability of a product.      

 

I will let you know what happens.

 

I wouldn't bother sending for repair to corecentric anymore - they will likely tell you the microporcessor is bad and unrepairable.   "Would you like your junk board back or can we keep it?"

Well I waited two weeks..... called Sears to find out that the board is NLA.... I gave them a piece of my mind!!!   Sears lies about all of their stock... they say everything is "in stock" with hopes of making the sale....   This screws with my customners,  when I tell them that a part is NLA,  customer goes on google and sees that Sears supposedly has everything in stock and ready to ship.

 

The customner service lady said that they can't determine the true stock status until they "check the shelves."  

 

Even after my antics today,  Sears still claims that this board is in stock and ready to ship.  Don't trust them.

On occasion I have gotten lucky getting the cheap price at Sears. I purchased two Maytag Neptune control panels. They had the prices reversed on the early and late model panels. I purchased two of the late model panels and recieved them no problem at about 70.00 each cheaper than anyone else. Soon afterward they had the prices corrected. You do have to pay sales tax there though if you are a common Joe like me not in a business.

Durham - you got me with Allen I.... my favorite basketball player of all time.

 

 

Explain this: You can go to any big-box store right now, and buy a brand new Kitchenaid refrigerator that uses the W10219463 / W10219462 board.....  Yet, Kitchenaid / Whirlpool claims that the board has been discontinued since 2011 ???
