GE refrigerator compressor not running
« on: November 25, 2013, 10:35:44 AM »

I have a GE M#PSS29NHMDCC refrigerator and the compressor is not running. It has no Line power going to the compressor. The evaporator fan and the condenser fan are running, the lights inside work and the thermostat setting will turn the fans on and off. The compressor will run if I jump Line power to the C terminal and it cools fine. On a blue connector on the circuit board it has terminals marked Line-Dfrt-Comp. The Line terminal has power but the Comp terminal has no power. Is there something else that could be wrong or is it a bad circuit board? Thanks

Provides all the wires and connectors are good, it would be the main control board.
