I pulled the board and no signs of burning. I have previous experience replacing boards on tankless water heaters and work IT so boards are no problem to work on. Guessing the board could still be bad even though no signs of burning. I also have a thermo-sensor without a cover identified in the freezer, but don't know if this would impact the entire freezer and fridge from cooling. Any other recommendations or worth shelling out the $165 on the board + shipping to see if this fixes the issue? I am up to troubleshooting everything and anything that could be the culprit to resolve vice buying piece by piece over time to resolve.
NOTE: Updated make and serial number information based on verification: Model #ZIS8480DRI Serial #LL030524
compressor is cold to the touch - not warm at all and temp in freezer and fridge are both a 66 degrees. I completed the following today for additional troubleshooting and information to provide:
Coils had never been cleaned to my knowledge - went ahead and cleaned with soft brush and shopvac'd. dust to the best of my capability. Didn't appear to be too bad. After cleaning still the same issue.
I have NOT tested for power to the compressor - not sure how to do this since area is pretty compact and no obvious wires running from the compressor, but from the plastic cased unit on side of compressor. I can test if informed which wires to test to ensure power or other recommended testing.
I have tested the thermistor’s and all appear to be fine.
Thanks for the continued support and additional information would be greatly appreciated.
Alright, prior to moving forward I need to provide some additional information to ensure I am moving forward properly. The model number is XXXXX - mistyped the first 8 vice B earlier. On the Main Board I see a large Aqua plug (box shaped) on the lefthand side of the board with two wires. After removing Line, Comp, Def is identified.
Compressor# XXXXX and Main Board# XXXXX
Move forward with your recommendation? Just want to ensure since I did not provide all of the accurate information previously.
Alright, tried a few times and unfortunately did not work. I do not know if it makes a difference, but there are only two wires in the plug that connect to the def and line on the main board. No wire identified in the comp part of the plug and all plastic inside that part of the plug. I further tried jumping the def and line on the plug - also, no success to anything turning on.
In addition, I lost all power to the fridge when I performed both processes. When I removed the jumper wire and plugged connection back into the main board I was back where I started as previously described.
Any further recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
