Moisture inside the fresh food side of the refrigerator. We had replaced the mother board for this problem when it was still under the warranty. I am afraid the same problem return. I myself am handy person, can I buy the part and replace it myself. How difficult is it?
The main control board replacement is a easy replacement to make, You would just pull out the unit from the wall and there will be a cover that is covering the control board. Remove this cover and disconnect one group of wires at a time and switch them to the new board. Each connector will only fit one spot.
Purchased replacement motherboard. In reconnecting, to J14 find the only plug left is a 3 hole plug but J14 has 4 prongs. Would this be correct & if so, do we plug into the top portion of J14 of bottom portion?
Not all of the connectors will be used for your unit. If the 3 plug connector has round holes then it will not plug to anything. This sounds like it is a test port that is put on the units. Based on the tech sheet it does not show that the J14 is being used on your unit.
Both Freezer and refrigerator section stopped cooling, trying to figure out which part to order and replace... any advice in troubleshooting is appreciated...
Answer Hello Boris. Test for power to the compressor and if there is none there, then you will need to order and replace the main control board on the unit. If there is power there and the unit does not run, you will need to check and see if the compressor is bad on the unit. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
