Have run through checklist in the Frigidaire repair manual and found motor control board to be the problem. The motor itself tests fine. The fuse on the board, however, seems to be gone as well. The manual states that if the fuse is bad then the control board and the motor must be replaced. Is this necessary if the motor is ok?
Thanks

Have you tried replacing the fuse? How have you confirmed the motor is fine?

Replace the fuse and it will just blow again, because of whatever the problem is on the board.

I've never had to replace the motor on one of these when the fuse is blown. If all the ohm readings from the motor match the specs you should be OK with just replacing the motor control board, (a very common failure on these machines, hardly every see a bad motor).
