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.
Hi My refrigerator is not geting cold like it use too but the freezer is fine what could be the problem. THANKS!
Answer Hello Eugene. It sounds like you may have a defrost problem with the unit. If so, you will need to test the defrost heater and the defrost thermostat. They should read closed for continuity when cold. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. I will include a link at the end to assist you how to use the multi-meter if needed. If both parts are good, you will need to replace the defrost timer. Once the problem is repaired, you will need to thaw out the ice on the coils before the unit will operate properly. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
Hi, My refrigerator is making loud, gurgling noise. (You could hear it louder with the freezer door open.) The noise ran for a while and finally stopped, but this was more than the usual level of sound it makes when running. What could be the problem?
Answer Hello Danielle,
If the unit is maintaining proper temperatures and no frost accumulation is occurring on the rear wall of the freezer compartment, this is considered to be normal operation of a 134a unit. The pressures are so high in the 134a systems that the lines make all sorts of weird noises. While most customers do not like this, there is basically nothing that can be done short of ignoring the noises.
My freezer and refrigerator not cold enougth. The evaporator coil just frost half way, every thing else working. What do you think is the problem? Thank you
Answer Hello Susie. Based on the information you provided, it sounds like you have a low freon issue or restriction. You will need an HVAC tech to repair the unit.
