Need Appliance Repair Help? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.
Do you have a model number so I can better assist you? It should be located on a sticker near the ceiling of the refrigerator section. Also, when you say the unit was cycling quite often, are you talking about the compressor or are all the fans an motors turning off?
Thank you. Also, when you say the unit was cycling quite often, are you talking about the compressor or are all the fans an motors turning off?
OK so to be clear, no fans or motors or anything are running currently?
OK so your main control board under the refrigerator back by the compressor has just failed I'm sorry to say. It's located inside a sheet metal box against the right side wall and the problem is the board is no longer made. You can still find refurbished boards on the internet and whatnot, but the part number you need to order and replace is WPW10219463.

The inverter wouldn't stop the freezer fan from running. You said nothing was running which means only the main control board is a possibility.
Then the compressor would still run
no it does not.
Yes, because it's warm in the freezer---that is why it's open.
No, the control board shuts it down when it goes into defrost cycle.
it opens every time to cut out power to the heater if it gets too warm inside the freezer. That is 100% normal. It's closed only when its cooling.
yes you can contact me later but again you just need to replace the control board. There is an E-mail sent to you with a link to come back and and ask follow-up questions after you rate me if you need anything else. As for the phone call, I'm not sure why there would be any reason you would need to do that since it's very clear you just need to replace the board.
No problem and you do the same as well!
Hello again. I'm just following up because I haven't heard back from you and I see this question is still open and unrated. Is there anything else I can help you with?
