Condenser fan stopped running so did meter check on wires and appeared to have voltage to fan. Replaced fan and nothing happened for about an hour then fan ran fine, Yoder cooled etc. Ran all day and night with no issues. Checked this morning and fan not running, compressor on and Yoder hot again. Should I just go for a control board?

A need a voltmeter (I'b borrowed one to check the fan the first time) to check but it is a new fan and was running. If there is not voltage to fan when compressor on, does this mean control board or could it mean compressor is going bad and pulling too voltage thereby making the fan not operable?

nope ,pretty much all it can be at that point is the control...would be prudent to check output right off the board, to rule out pinched/broken wire.

i would pay careful attention to the connectors as well. When you test for voltage, make sure to jiggle the connector and wires to see if there is a break/short in the wires or a bad connector. I doubt your compressor will pull that much voltage from your fan.

when I unplug the fridge for 1 minute, then plug it back up, the condenser fan comes back on (and runs when the compressor runs).

Thanks, waiting for the Samuri to finish lunch and approve me as an apprentice and then I'll look at the manual. The inverter here is "the" control panel I assume. Thanks in advance.
