Sometimes, after making sure the air dome is clear and there's no leaks, you can re-calibrate the pressure sensor and all is well. Thats only worked for me once however. Most often the pressure sensor has failed and your looking at replacing that entire control. Also, it seems like it'll give you the F1 if you don't have exactly the right amount of air in that air dome. Even with new boards that work fine.
Ive seen these units leak from the back top and the top. Nothing really secures the manifold aside from molded fittings. Sometimes the top of the tub will bow in making the the fittings loose and leaking water. Try pushing the top of the tub up. Really though, you just need to pull it and run it outside the cabinetry. That will give you all the answers to all of your mysteries.
Well, I found out. That hub nut is a bitch to remove no matter how you get at it. The bearing that you have to buy the outer tub to obtain, is just a metal sleeve. The grinding noise was coming from the lower transmission bearing. The transmission pulley bearing. Cant purchase it. Have to buy the entire gearcase which retails out at 300 bucks. I put together a new bid on just replacing the transmission and of course my customer declined. I don't recommend anyone ever attempt to remove the hub nut or the outer tub.
Edit: Even though I am a proud owner of a BRAND NEW GE OUTER TUB, I will condemn this symptom instantly in the future. I recommend you do the same.
Originally, it was a burnt pin on the compressor relay. Dead box. Also, it sure did turn out to be the wire on the J1 connector pin 2. Clipped the wire, plugged her in, and she was blasting cold air through the damper into the FF side. Thanks fellas.

I've recently had a barrage of wpl and kitchen aid refrigerator boards go NLA on me. Luckily I save all my circuit boards so Ive been able to send a bunch in for rebuild preemptively. Im trying my hardest to keep customers from having to wait 2 weeks with a dead reefer. This situation is only going to get worse.
