I'll ohm it out, then.
The GE web site lists boards for about $17-. but I didn't see my particlar model online.
There are some local parts dealers, however, so it will be interesting to see what they have and for how much. Plus hopefully, it will be on hand in stock.
Do you know of any other models which would have the same board as mine?
Also, is there a better version of the board, as I seem to remember changing this one once before.
I'll do that.
Some extra observations:
A glass tube type fuse was soldered into the board, but wouldn't ohm out. (the filament looked intact, fooled me!!). It was marked M4.
L1 was either 2 (or 2 pairs) of windings. One winding ohmed out end to end, the other didn't. Neither, however, would ohm out from one winding to the other.
I'll still have the board checked out tomorrow.
Yes thats the best , this way you find out for sure.
Good luck with it thanks
I replaced the motherboard with a $165- non-refundable new one today, and the refrigerator is still dead.
I'm at my wits end, since I paid $300- to a professional 3 weeks ago for an earlier repair for frosting over . After this weekend, I've now spent over $500- on a 10 year old refrigerator.
What makes it worse is that I haven't been able to find a wiring diagram for this model.
What could go bad between the mother board and the AC power in?
Any help appreciated.
That was the first thing I tried, since I originall supposedly had a 'warranty'.
You may not believe this. ead on.
I left 5 mesages on the repairmans voicemail Saturday.
I finally got a call from a stand in today, who told me the original repairman had a family emergency out of country, and he, the replacement had forgotten to turn on his phone during the weekend.
