Frustrated with my LG French Door Refrigerator

Very dissatisfied with durability and electrical design. After 5 years I had to replace the mother board. The reason? The fuse burned out.
The wonderful design has provided us with two fuses to protect the board, but they are not replaceable. Hard wired into the board so when the inexpensive fuse is shot, the whole mother board is shot as well, even though it has been protected by the fuse.
Might as well cut their cost by leaving the fuse out since it does not protect the board. 50 cent fuse or a $200 board? As a consumer you have no choice. The repair techs are aware of the stupid design, but LG does not seem to care to correct it. Easier to charge the customer.
