Customer Question

Hello im jim. I have an lfc25776st that does is not cold. light is on and gauges are reading. purchased jan 2011 and no one will service in my remote location. thought the motherboard was bad - replaced it - still not working. tested the compressor windings and i get only one that shows any ohms (fluctuates) the other two pins i get nothing on the ohms nor any resistance. this fridge uses the invertor compressor. would the issue be the invertor board or the compressor?

The compressor itself is your problem and would need to be replaced. The way inverter refrigerator works is that no matter which combination you test on the compressor, (there are 3 pins which means there are 3 possible combinations total), you should get the same reading on all 3 combinations. If that isn't occurring, you have a bad compressor so the compressor would need to be replaced which is probably not something you can do yourself since you need a license and brazing torches and stuff like that.
