Hello, Thank you for using this service, I will be helping you with your problem today.
Good morning, Can you tell me if you hear any clicking comming from the back ? any at all even a slight click ?
no clicking at all. the compressor is silent.
How can I know if the problem is the control board, or the compressor. I just felt the compressor and it's not warm/hot. Is there a way I can confirm it's the control board before I order it?
Thank Bryan. I just pulled the panel, and flipped the board up. and like you said, the burnt solder joint is there. I am proficient with soldering. Can I simply resolder the joint, or has the relay (832A-1C-S) failed as well?
Ok. I'll give that a try. Thanks. I'll leave good feedback once it's fixed.
solder fix worked! I cleaned up in the joint nicely, reinstalled the PCB, plugged the frig in and bammm! compressor came right on. the inside coils are getting frosty right now. thanks. you saved me $186 plus all the food I would have had to throw out waiting for the board to arrive! have a great weekend Bryan
