The fan and/or the compressor do not come on after ten minutes.
sorry internet explorer went nuts on me. The fan only runs for a second or two then I hear a single cclick and it shuts off. Both the freezer and fridge are 70 degrees F.
Thank you for using Just Answer. I will be glad to assist you in your answer. Think about safety when doing repairs, electric, water, gas, ect.
It sounds like your main board has gone faulty. it is located by the compressor behind a cover. I cannot tell if the cover is metal, or plastic from this diagram, so please look for the wire harness heading to it. I think it is metal, to the left of the gray compressor inverter box. This board is not available, and will have to be sent off to repair. The part# XXXXX the board is W10219463, if your local parts dealer can find one for you. If not, here is a site that repairs them.....

conducted the diagnostic tested. all components passe except for the compressor which displayed a 2 status "compressor " What next?
no. i will do it now.
No meter. Still waiting the 7 minutes out. This time the defrost heater was on when I tested.
second test revealed "compressor off". I don't have a meter but i do have one of those pens that light up. Does that help any?
Thanet to the ks Chas.. Part is on order. When I removed the inverter to get to the main board I noticed the box was tarred and thought it may have shorted out.
received the inverter today and transferred all the wires from the old inverter to the new one. I'm ready to plug the new one into the black box on the side of the the compressor but I can't get into the box to remove the old wire and plug into the new one. How do I get the black box opened or remove from the compressor?
Nothing is in the way. I removed the screw that prevents prevents the wire from unplugging itself. Just don't see anyway to remove or open the box.
I took a photo but couldn't get it to attach. So I lost patience and pryed the box opened. It worked and I am ready to plug in the new invertor. The box was just a protective cover and if it won't snap back in place, I'll just find a way to keep it in place.
