I've been having trouble with the fridge staying cold for the last few months. I had a tech come out, we did all the diagnostic tests, and he ultimately told me that the main board (part# W10219463) needed to be replaced, to the tune of $600. He said that the board was no longer manufactured and had to be rebuilt. After further discussion he said that when they rebuild the boards, all they do is replace the relays. So I decided to buy the relays and replace them myself. I found the exact relays for a couple bucks each and replaced them, no problem. However, the unit still does not function properly. Now the alarm sounds continuously. Relays click, the condensor goes on, but there is no display or only a quick flash of the display when powering on. Are there other parts on the board that might be causing this that I can replace, or is it even the board at all? Should I just send in the board to get rebuilt at this point? Thanks for any help and advice.
ANSWER Hello Trevor,
It sounds like something has gotten crossed in the board which would cause the alarm to sound all the time. It would be better to send the board to have it rebuilt as they can test each component. They would also have a breakdown of all the parts of the board to repair it properly.
