The fridge needs DC power to turn on and work, you should have a terminal block on the back of the fridge where the DC supply wires get screwed down. Did you take a DC voltage reading at that point? I can get you a service manual with wiring diagrams, I am just not sure where you checked the DC voltage, at the board outside or the inside display?

Thanks, Robert

Click HERE for a service manual and follow the troubleshooting on page 4. This will have diagrams for you as well. IF you have DC voltage at the fuse on the board and the fridge is not turning on I suspect the upper display or circuit board is the problem and the service manual will help you to determine which one is at fault. On some of these units they also have thermal cutoff on the flue canister, it is a small disc about the size of a quarter and in the center is a tiny button, want to make sure that is not tripped, IF you see that thermal cutoff gently push in on the tiny button, when that trips it cuts power to the fridge.

Please let me know if you have more questions or concerns, follow ups are included, I respond WHEN I can.

IF you are satisfied with my efforts please feel free to select a STAR rating on the page.

Have a Safe and Happy Holidays.... Robert
