In the name of energy conservation Brainiacs have decided to use a variable speed dc compressor which ranges from 200 VDC to 10 or 15 VDC when the machine is in vacation mode. When you want a quick chill the compressor ramps up to move the freon faster. When nobody is around and the doors are not being opened as often as it is during regular everyday use, it shuts down into a slumber using minimal power to maintain temps.

Never worked on one like this myself. Maybe another tech will have some answer for the both of us.

Get the board of there and look for signs of a solder failure near the compressor relay on it. I soldiered one back once and made the compressor start working. been working every since:
