Was trying to upload a pic -- The complete model is RFG298AARS
I did pull the cover off and there is a smell I normally associate with a computer "giving up the ghost" (Im a computer tech) but I do not see any obvious burn marks. The lights on the front are blinking a code I think as it seems to alternate with a two quick flashes every so often just can not figure out the pattern.
My buttons look different but I have held and each set for 3 seconds (top pair, middle pair, bottom pair) however when I press them there is no indication of acknowledgement from the device. The display is completely off, just the leds are blinking.
The bottom board has what looks like a piece of metal sticking out of a black piece of metal that is extermely hot. It is labled IC90 on the board.
ahhhh, there you go. thats the main PBA. if its overheating its bad. you will need to order and replace it. heres a link to the part. PBA
