Well, back in December I posted about my fridge not cooling, and it turned out to be a mouse who had gotten stuck in the fan.

http://applianceguru.com/forum1/18462.html

A week ago, it quit cooling.  Just quit.  The lights are on, but nobody is home.  I see nothing obvious, and yes, I did check the fan for cousins.  :D  I gave the motherboard a visual inspection, and don't see anything obvious.

The fridge gurgles slightly when I plug it in, the fan doesn't come on, and the compressor is slightly warm.


???

Any ideas where to look?  OR should I just shoot the thing at this point?

Sounds like the compressor is running. Verify this by checking for voltage to the compressor with your light stick.

Which fan are you referring to; there are two: the condenser fan down by the compressor and the evaporator fan in the freezer.

Oh, I'm a bad boy. I didn't mean to leave you all hanging like this. My father passed away unexpectedly, and I never did get the fridge fixed. Someone gave us another one (same model), so there was no need.

I may decide to go ahead and swap motherboards to see if the old one can be revived easily. We could use another fridge...

Any danger in that? Might I fry a perfectly good board?

better to try the (supposedly bad) motherboard into the good Fridge

Ah, yes! That would be the safer approach!


Thanks!
