Yes it was on the compressor side. However, when I turn the refrigerator on, there is no clicking noise on the relay.
Yes, the refrigerator worked fine for the last 4 months after the relay was replaced.
I have turned the refrigerator on again and will let you know if the compressor gets warm
Hi, I just checked the compressor on top with the fridge running for the last 30 minutes. It is cold.
Yes, I think he has a voltmeter. Let me go check with him and I'll ask him to chat with you.
Not sure I got what you said, could you please clarify which wires you are referring to? Are they they wires connected to the relay?
There were only two wires connected to the relay. There was no power on any of the wires. (one was 0V and the other was O.6 V, with the frame)
The fridge was operating and there was air blowing out in the freezer section (warm air). I'm assuming there is a fan blowing this air out. I cannot see the fan though.
Just wanted to let you know that there is a fan near the compressor at the back of the refrigerator and this fan is not working
Is this the only part that needs to be replaced or is there a possibility that the compressor also has failed?
Also do you have instructions on how to replace the main control board? Would appreciate if you could share it with me.
Would also like to ask you a question. The fridge is presently placed between two floor to ceiling cabinets. Could this be the reason for the multiple failures that we've faced?
Would appreciate your advice.
Thank you very much for the information. Could you please confirm that its not likely that any other part has failed (e.g compressor etc). It is quite an old refrigerator (approx 10 years) and we would like to get the total cost before investing money into the repair.
If you would like me to check any other part please let me know.
Here are the reading
1-2 -- 9.4 ohms
2-3 -- 6.3 ohms
1-3 -- 3.4 ohms
Also the readings between the pins and the frame is 1 (i.e no reading)
I received the replacement part. I noticed that the replacement board is in one piece (display section and board section connected together), whereas in the original board the display section and the board section could move relative to each other ( which helps in assembly).
I noticed that there are the two sections in the new board are joined by very small board pieces. Should I just break them apart manually, or is there a technique for breaking the these pieces.
Would appreciate your advice,
Thanks for your quick response. I'll try it and get back to you if I have any issues.
P.S: I noticed that there a burnt (black) mark behind one of the components in the old board
I replaced the board and the fridge started working. Thank you for your help, however I noticed that the light in the fridge section is not working now, seems strange to me cause it was working previously even with the defective board. Could you please advise what could be the problem ?
Yes, the bulb is not working now. It was working earlier.
Also, the bulb in the freezer is working.
Ok thanks, I think I'll try this sooner (maybe later today or tomorrow) and let you know.
Just wanted to let you know that I opened the board and checked the board connections. I also removed and refitted the bulb that lights the interior.
Everything works now. Must have been a bad connection.
Thanks a lot for your advice and help.
