The only power to the board is the 120v going in. The DC voltage should be converted and delivered from the board. Right?

If you install a new board again i would leave J2 unplug and see if compressor turns on and the display lights up.How many board have you install on this?If that evap. fan is shorted it will blow board again.What to you think about leaving J2 up plug to see if compressor and display lights come on ANYBODY.Just as a test.Also never seen a condoners fan goes bad were it blows out board.He says compressor does not even come on and also display.My thinking is if compressor comes on with J2 unplug and displays comes  on bad evap.fan motor. What to you guys think?

Yea Rick also check all thermistors as from the J1 plug as they all should have about the same resistance as the box has been shut off.I guess this is the case.

I can't figure how to get the freezer back panel off! But it works with the J2 connector off so I just need to change the fan now.

That panel was a pain In the ass to get off but ingot it off and switched out the fan and it works fine. Thanks to all you guys for the help. I was so excited when I fixed it. And on the way out another guy stopped me and asked to fix his fridge I fixed it and made something off that too.

The voltages where differently a I already spent $139 on the cond fan I didn't want to spend another $200 on a evap fan. It seemed to work.
