Check two pin wire going to inverter for 5 to 13 vdc. If you have the DC voltage to the inverter, the main board is ok. Now check the windings on the compressor.  Should be 10 ohms. If the board and compressor check out, the inverter is bad.

Thank you! Can you tell me exactly how to test the windings on the compressor. I think we have determined the board is ok.

Remove the inverter from the compressor and test each pin on the compressor.  You should get around 10 ohms from each pin

Well, if we did that right we have a bad compressor, got no reading. :(
