In Topic: Kenmore Fridge Error Code

14 June 2014 - 07:56 PM

Odd development - I went over to my neighbor's house (the one's that have this fridge) and found that since we did the diagnostic testing, it hasn't produced the error again.  Other than a loose connection on the PCB that I might have jarred when testing voltages, what on earth could have "cured" the fan problem?

 

Also, I noticed my link in the above post got edited to Appliance Parts Pros - it this our new best source for parts?  I missed the memo...

Thank you.  I know they are constantly updating parts as problems arise.  I have never seen a more confusing parts diagram.  Normally an exploded diagram gives you some hint as to where the parts settle back in the unit.  This one looks pretty random.

Thanks for the replies.

 

Applianceman - could you tell me more about this freezer evaporator cover you speak of?  A part number or a way to look it up would be much appreciated.  Is this an updated part?

 

 

Spannerwrench - thank you for the manual.  Very useful.  I did the testing outlined.  I am getting 10.7 volts between 1-2 on connector 7 which indicates the PCB is supplying power.  I got 2.4 volts between 1-3.  It says it is supposed to be 0 or 5 volts. 

 

The confusing thing is that when I put it in test mode 1, the first thing it tells you to do is check "windy or no windy" - well, the fan was running.  It tells you to go to 5 if it is "windy" - except there is no 5.  I love translated works, don't you?  Anyway, my suspicion is the motor is running for a little while after the fridge is reset and then binding up, so unless anyone has intervening words of wisdom, I'll be ordering a new motor.

 

For those that have done this, is repair clinic's video on a similar LG motor going to get me there? - http://www.youtube.c...h?v=4qqa1oAYKUc

 

And, I am after this part, correct?  Part number: EAU60694510

Update time.  FixYourBoard came through.  The repaired board arrived yesterday.  Their summary sheet says there was a failure in the element drive circuit.  They replaced several other items on the board and repaired solder joints.  Plugged it  back in and it works perfectly.  Comes with a 2 year warranty as well.  Thanks for everyone's help.

Thanks for the replies.  The board is on the way.  Hopefully it will be an easy fix for them.
