My name is***** am so happy to help you today.
I would like to say that we are also on the honors system. I in good faith am going to do my utmost to ensure your satisfaction. Please before rating me, make sure that I have answered all your questions.
What part number did you replace?
Did you use a new or used board for the replacement
So it is doing exactly the same thing as the old board, correct?
give me a minute to check something please.
Did you board come with instructions about possibly having to cut a wire out of the harness depending ont he serial number of the unit?
Okay, Wanted to make sure on that one. Also the fan motor is not running inisde the freezer compartment, right?
And you double checked your connections on istallation of the new baord?
I know it is pretty straight forward, but I seen it happen, I had one yesterday that did not hook up all the plugs, because they did not think they were necessary. I have to admit I am stumped on this one, I am going to open your question to other experts and see if they have an answer for this problem.
I am a different tech, Chas has left does the touchpad respond?
Ok in the diagram it made it look like that one did but yes I see it just uses the encoder only, do all the lights work and any fans run?
If the last one did the same thing as this one, I would replace the encoder nothing much else could cause it not to go on at all unless you have a broken wire connection from the encoder to the board. Also which resistor was fried on the old board?
The thermisters can not cause a non start, but the encoder can which is the control board where you set the temperature
OK that is a fan resistor, have you checked the freezer evaporator fan?
Yes they are and the green resistors are the ones for the evaporator fan, but if it is just dead either you received a bad new main board or the encoder board is bad.
