Hi,Welcome to Just Answer, My name is XXXXX XXXXX forward to helping you today.
Okay is absolutely nothing running in this right now? No fans? N
I have replaced the control board with a new one per your instructions. It has been more half an hour and still no response from the fan or motor in the custom chill unit and no other air movement that I can detect. I left the fridge door open all day with the door switch clamped closed and the temp in the fridge got down to 58. Now the temp is actually rising when I close the door after replacing the control board. I have now spent $180 and don't seem to be any further along than I was 24 hours ago. What do you suggest.
It's actually been 3hours now since I replaced the control board and the fridge just continues to heat up. I cannot return the part since i Installed it. I need help to resolve this.

I found the problem. After looking more closely at the fridge door switch I see that the rocker has been broken off from the switch. The pin is exposed, but it doesn't look "broken" because there are no broken parts showing. I was pushing in the pin without realizing the switch was broken. I removed the switch and will replace it later today. That explains the light staying on and the firdge getting hot inside.
As for your answer, I explained in my original submission that the inside surface of the fridge at the top was hot. I did not think about the light staying on and what could cause that, but as an expert I feel you should have explored that more fully before sending me to purchase a control panel. I think you looked at the most common sympton and the most common fix, then gave me the most common answer, which in this case was not correct.
In any case, if you can give me the part number for the fridge door switch, that would be helpful. Thank you.
Bryan, I found the door switch part myself and ordered it. I am really unhappy about purchasing the control board. I feel you did not explore the issue enough before recommending this action.
