My French door refrigerator bottom freezer just stopped cooling today... Both the Refrigerator and freezer are not cooling at all (60+ degrees in both)
We have completely emptied and cleaned the unit and dusted the back vent areas and still have nothing. I'm leaving it unplugged over night but as the unit has been defrosting for over 10 hours now I doubt this will work.
I went through the self diagnostic and am getting the 88 88 and then nothing coming back.
I've opened the area around the PCB thing and found a small amount of clear oily substance on the bottom that had a burnt electrical wiring smell. I was hoping to see the LED blinking but all I found was what looked like a red LED that wasn't even on.
I don't know if this is worth salvaging and I would like some help resolving what might be the issue and what parts I might be able to replace to fix it. Unfortunately it is almost Christmas soon so i would like to resolve it well in advance before all the family comes over etc.
ANSWER Hello Brian. Based on the information you provided, it sounds like the main control board DA41-00538A is bad and will need to be replaced on the unit.
