I just bought the main control board because the other one burnt out. When I put the new one in, after about 2 minutes the same part that was burnt on the old one started to burn on the new one. Everything in the refrigerator turns on except the evaporator fan. Could the evaporator fan being defective cause the board to burn again.
If there is a short in the evaporator fan, then yes it is possible for the fan to cause the unit control board to fail.
