The only reason the compressor wouldn't run if you have a good inverter board is if the compressor is bad or the main control board isn't telling the inverter board to turn the compressor on. You can't test the main board but you can test the compressor. Unplug the refrigerator and unplug the inverter board from the side of the compressor. There are 3 pins on the compressor where the inverter plugs into. Test resistance between any 2 pins. There are 3 possible combinations and you should have the same resistance regardless of what combination you test. The resistance will be less than 10 ohms. If all 3 combinations check good, replace the main control board, otherwise replace the compressor.
