To the Dojo,

I went on this call with another manual (using it for diagnostics, thermistor values, etc.). The fridge presented with NO evaporator fan. Using the manual I had (not this one from Most Honorable Sensei Reg: http://appliantology...-manual-please/), I proceeded through the "No Evaporator Fan" drill; I pulled J1 of the non-standard motherboard, made the recommended measurements, and reconnected J1 to mother. Afterwards, I plugged the fridge back up--fans BUT no compressor. Hence my stress.
Using the manual Reg messaged me, I first put this fridge into continuous run...and STILL no compressor. According to the literature, I pulled the sealed system service panel and the inverter access panel to measure VDC at the compressor and got 20 VDC (below range). On the plus side, however, the evaporator fan now works.
What info and/or experience, small or great, can anyone in the Dojo share about this? I've got nine days since she's going out of town till Monday week.

Thanks in advance,
Tyrus

Nothing? I figured somebody had done some work on these dual evaporator products.

Sorry for the delayed reply on this one. The dance here is that if you're getting a good 120vac supply to the perverter board but it's outputting out-of-spec voltage to the compressor, replace the perverter board, slam dunk. ==> http://www.repaircli...5X10490/1092955

Samurai,

Do I measure 120 VAC at pin J15 on the control board, with the connector secure? The GE literature speaks both of 120 VAC ALWAYS available at the inverter, and that 4-6 VDC sent from the control board. Based on Sensei Reg's most excellent manual, I would measure for 120VAC at N and L1 AT THE INVERTER ITSELF (p.24 from above-linked manual). Just checking for kata clarification; want to measure right voltage at right place.

Thanks in advance,
Tyrus

All this perverter talk turns out to be an exercise in speculation; the customer had a compressor ohming 6.4 at ALL windings (well under the 9-11 factory specified ohms in the literature), and she went shopping. Many domos nonetheless, Samurai, b/c you helped put another wrinkle on my brain.
