its powered by the motherboard.

some testing instructions even though you dont really
need them at this point.

To test this, locate the main board on the back of the refrigerator. On that board there is a plug marked J2, this is where testing for the fan is done. Set your meter to read DC voltage and place your black (common) lead on J2-pin 3 (third pin from left) and your red lead on J2 pin 8 you should get 12-14 VDC and if you don’t replace the main board. Next, leave your black lead on the same wire and test to pin 5 this pin should read 12 VDC, 8VDC, or 4VDC. Note that you should only get 4VDC if your refrigerator has a variable speed compressor.

Big Thanks for the info on testing it. will do in the am. i have a MB on the way. this unit has been a pain in the butt, first the defrost, the dbl retro fit seems to take care of that problem. after reading more here my unit had some problems and recalls that i never had a clue on. just my luck, LOL, again thanks.
