Hello, and welcome to JustAnswer. My name is ***** ***** I will be the one to assist you. Is the compressor running at all? Is it running hot or warm?

dont get anything
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
can you tell me if it would likely be the relay or would it be the compressor
Expert:  Webb-Guy replied 1 month ago.

well its going to depend. IS the fans and compressor not running if not then more then likely your issue with the control board.

nothing seems to be running
Expert:  Webb-Guy replied 1 month ago.

ok so the problem is with your main control board its not the compressor or the relay.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
how much would a replacement board be and how easy would it be to replace
Expert:  Webb-Guy replied 1 month ago.

and just to be sure there is no click or anything at all correct?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
correct
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
any idea on that
Expert:  Webb-Guy replied 1 month ago.

i just wanted to be certain before ruling out the relay was all. So yes the control board is certainly the problem but in order to get the correct part you will need to contact them to see if its cheaper to replace the board or just replace the unit.

The only place you can get parts from is from Edgestar themselves .

If the new board is more expensive then 250 I wouldn't even bother fixing it I would replace it.
