Customer Question
Fridge motor goes on...

Fridge motor goes on and of over and over. Will sometime run for 15vsec then turns off them right back on. Both sides are at correct temps. Just keeps going on and off. For last couple weeks.

Hello sorry to hear you are having trouble, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

The inverter board that controls the compressor is bad and needs to be replaced.

The inverter is mounted to the side of the compressor on the back of the unit. Just remove that one and install the new one.
