Sub Zero 561 serial # P1164106. Refrigerator compressor is not working. Freezer compressor is working fine. Condenser fan is operating also. I checked the #5 spade at the condenser relay and no power. Should there be power on that spade for the compressor to operate? The Refrigerator compressor is a an Embraco.

# 5 on the Condenser Fan Relay is an input.
If there's no power there...sounds like a bad Fridge Cold Control

Is there a way to test this cold control... and where would it be located?

Thanks.

It's the Control you turn to adjust the Cold in the Fridge.
Could be tested if you had a meter

I do have a meter. Is this control accessible from the front or rear of the unit. I have taken the light cover off and see a metal cover box with several screws.
