Hello,

 

First post!!! I have a side by side model#106.53652300.  We had a big power outage and the unit stopped working.  Nothing on the control board would light and no motors, fans, or anything worked.  We had a guy come out to check it out and he said it was the control board and showed it to us with 2 burn spots on it.

 

He told us it would be $400 to replace it, or he would give us $500 and haul it away.  Upon hearing the second part, I said thanks but no thanks.  I later found the control board on Repair Clinic and replaced it for half his cost.  However, the unit still does not have any fans running or cooling happening.  On repairclinic.com, they mention that it could be the Starter for the compressor. 

 

Neither the Fridge or Freezer are very could.

The Control Board has been replaced and all lights work.

 

No fans running.

 

Where is the Compressor starter and what else would you recommend I check, and how do you check it.

 

Thanks so much!

The starter is next to the compressor, you need a screwdriver to remove the cover and check the ptc,  if something shake inside  possible is bad. The fans (Evaporator and condenser fan should work) indipendent if the compressor works or not.

It may have damaged some wiring somewhere, or you happened to get a bad board.  I don't know if this is a model that the board needs programmed after being installed.

Okay...So I just pulled the starter and capacitor.  Checked the ohms on the cap and it checks out.  BUT, there was a rattle in the starter.  Popped it open and found a scorch mark inside.  Safe to say it is bad!  Thanks Magenta#90

 

Now, I need to know if the fan motor to the right of the compressor (I think that is the Evaporator Fan, it has metal blades) works in conjunction with this starter?  What I am trying to ask is: If the starter is bad, can that stop that fan???

 

THanks again! Trying to order parts all at once and with as little OVER ordering as possible.

The fan motor by the compressor which isn't far from the condenser coils is the condenser fan motor.
The fan by the evaporator inside the freezer compartment is, ta da: the evaporator fan motor. :)

Both should be working, even if your compressor start relay isn't. Time to busy out the ole multimeter and take some readings.

I just became an apprentice so I could download the wiring diagram.  Thanks, RegUS_PatOff.

 

Do the fan motors have breakers or fuses for them?  On RepairClinic.com I can only find the Evaporator Motor.  Any idea where to get the condenser motor?

I have the starter coming by Saturday.  My condenser has a metal fan on it.  Does that make a difference?

 

Also, according to the schematic you sent me, it looks like the condenser motor is linked to the starter.  Does that make sense?

the Condenser Fan gets it's power from the same Controller pin as the Compressor does.

Did you check for 120v there ?

I checked and got the 120v reading at the Controller pin.  I have the new starter installed, and the compressor comes on!!!  However, nether the condenser or evaporator fans come on.  Has anyone EVER heard of the Condenser fan, evaporator fan, and compressor starter all going at the same time?  It was an electrical spike that we had in our area that caused all this.

 

Thanks agian,

It's not common but neither is it unusual for more than one part to fail at the same time, for example, both an ADC board and compressor start relay.  This could happen due to spikes and surges on the line that enter the fridge through an unprotected outlet without a surge suppressor.  

 

ADC Board:  http://www.repaircli...er=106.53652300

I stock surge suppressors in my service vehicles.  I have a hard time keeping enough in stock because, once I explain that all circuit boards are just as vulnerable as their computer to junk on the power lines, the smart customers will buy me out (convenience) and use them all over their house.

Okay. Just wanted to confirm that it can happen.  The ADC board was what I first replaced.  It had two burned out areas on it.  I am ordering both fan motors today, and hoping that does the trick.

If you confirm you have voltage going to the fan motors, sounds like a good bet.
