What happens if the Pin 2 of the J1 connector isnt cut when installing a mainboard on a listed encoder model? I have a refrigerator where another guy installed the mainboard and didnt cut the wire? The damper is acting up and so is the evap fan. I looked at the old board and saw that it did have a burn mark on it but the resistors at the eveap fan were good.

Thanks!

I am going to, you see, the mainboard was installed by another company not me. I was just curious because,damper is wide open freezer is cold and making ice but refer is at 55 degrees. I will cut it and get back to you.

Evaporator fan running?
defrost system functioning properly?
don't assume because the" other guys failed to cut the jumper that this is your only problem...

The freezer was cold making ice just no air flow from freezer to fridge.

Well if the freezer is cold enuff, the fan is working, the coil is clear, and the damper is open...
nothing left but return air and im sure you checked those when you had the coil exposed...
thermistors?
