Interesting as it verifies a problem with the motherboard. The same test can be done by energizing the heaviest load, I think the auger motor, will check later.
 Most customers would prefer just replacing the board and not to wait for repair.

Virtually, all the board failures I see are not the WR55X10942, but the original production board without the overcurrent load isolating relays that are in the new boards.
 It's possible the new boards contain a failure prone 13 volt power supply, but I have never seen one.
 Virtually all the WR55X10942 I have replaced have never failed.
