This Danby Beverage Fridge Model# DBC2760BLS is not cooling.   Both evaporator fans work well, the compressor and condenser fan not working.  I put a hard start kit on and could only get it to start the compressor with a external 120v power cord, the it seemed to run fine.  Is this as simple as replacing the relay and capacitor?  Also, is this a Samsung? and does anybody have the service manual?  Thanks

No, some weird voltage coming from the capacitor, but yes to the fan when I had my cheater cord plugged into the start kit, fan ran great then.

Sensei     u right it does have 2 zones. those boards go bad also when 1 zone goes out (restriction etc) the 2nd zone will work for 24 hrs & then shut down ALSO.

OK so i installed both control boards and main board P/N DG3-45, and new Start Relay P/N QP2-4.7, and new Overload P/N B99-125.  I plugged the unit back in and all I get is a consistent beeping noise and flashing blue lights on the interior, its a quick beep, like one per second.  I pressed the control buttons in various ways trying to reset the unit, didn't work.  Did I get a bad board? is there something else I'm overlooking?  Oh and the evaporator fans 'jump' but don't turn everytime the beep happens.

Sounds to me (JUST A GUESS) that you should put the old boards back in and see if the evaporator fans are still running normal. then I would check the power into the board, and check the power relay on the boar for the compressor, and condenser fan motor. there should be a wiring diagram some where on the unit. Try looking behind the kickplate, under the front of the unit too.
