I am getting 12.5 volts ac between the 3 wires going into the compressor relay. Does this mean the board is bad?
Answer jDizzle, Yes, you should have 120 VAC at the compressor wires, not 12.5 VAC, apparently you do have a bad mother board WR55X10942 Thanks and Good Luck.

Refrigerator stopped cooling. Lights on, water is working, fans off. Found bad compressor overload relay and bought kit and replaced overload relay then plugged it in and it worked.
Both sides got to proper temp 7 degrees freezer, 37 in refer. Ice maker made one or two cycles of cubes then after a couple hours the refrigerator stopped working with the same symptoms as before. No cooling no fans. please help.
The most likely cause of the unit not cooling and the fans not running would be that it has gone into defrost and has not come out of defrost. You will want to test the thermistor on the evaporator to see what the resistance is. The proper resistance rating should be 42.2K ohms at 0 degrees, 14.4K ohms at 37 degrees and 5K ohms at 77 degree room temp. If this checks ok then the control board would most likely be the cause. Try unplugging the unit and let it sit for about 10 minutes then plug back in to see if it comes on. If it does then the issue would be the control board.
