dead meaning no lights, compressor etc? if so check the power line to and from the mainboard.

Bro Reg, just curious  I see on Sears site this fridge has an inverter board for startup and also has a start relay. Is this diagram simply covering multiple models.....(awaiting wiring diagram as well) Do tell?

location no 27 in Unit section part no W10356137

it also comes up at repair clinic as "start device." I think it's a mislabeling. Sites call it an inverter/start device but I see a used one listed as an "LED power supply". Must be the latter. It must invert power from ac to dc for the LED's and since it is near the compressor the labeling of inverter/start device is an error born out of an assumption.

If it is an LED controller and it controls all lights as well as interface, then I wonder if a failed Controller can lead to a "dead" machine.

The fridge that I have doesn't have an inverter (unless they hid it somewhere), but did have a box by the comp that was to control the led's

yeah that's what i figured.  Sears,  repair clinic  et al  have it wrong.  Then again,  it would not surprise me if Whirlpool  sent them the wrong info. 

 

 

I am glad though because it was making my head explode.

I found out that the door hinges were bent so the light switches in the freezer weren't being pushed. I'm not sure is that was the "dead" problem. At first I thought that plug coming out of the board was loose, because the fridge came alive, but then it happened again when I unplugged it and plugged it in, then I found out about the light switch not being activated. So now I'm keeping an eye on it.
