2 circuit boards burned up

Freezer fan motor and now water ice not working. I removed and tested fan plug for power but there was none. repair tech said board was bad so I bought a new one and installed it. Fan did not start working but water and ice did. Within an hour same resistor burned up. What's melting the resistor ?

    Thanks Joe, the fridge is 6 years old. I hate to buy a new fridge every 6 years. I can purchase and install the motor myself. The circuit board was less than $100. Is there a way to replace the resistors on the board ?

    I'll purchase the new parts and see what happens. THanks for the help.

The fan motor is shot. You need to get an estimate on a repair and compare that to the savings over time of purchasing a new, efficient model. good luck with it.

Ice Maker doesn't work, condenser fan was not running


It could be the the control board or a broken wire in the door.

But if you hear the timer motor running then you are getting power to the ice maker.

Have you check the temperature in the freezer?

The freezer must be 5 degrees or below for the ice maker to work.

Here is a link on how to test the ice maker.

The E/F error code is indicating a problem with the evaporator fan motor inside the freezer. It could be caused by a failed fan motor, control board or a loose wiring connection between the two components. The control board monitors the evaporator fan motor operation and speed. If the control board does not receive information from the fan motor or receives incorrect information because the fan motor has stalled out or is not running correctly "E/F" will display. This type of error code will require a service technician in order to diagnose the failure. I recommend calling a service technician to repair your refrigerator.

Hotpoint fridge dispenser works on water but not ice


If the little green lites show up , you do not need a circuit board . If you get a hum or buzzing noise when pushing for CRUSHED ice , then the auger motor is frozen up . Remove the ice bin and use a hair dryer directly on the forks which turn the dispensor . The heat will transfer into the motor , defrosting the armature . Try closing the freezer door ocassionally and pushing the arm to test if forks turn .

Try these next steps:

Follow the water line for the ice maker back to the ice maker water solenoid
Follow the wiring from the water valve to its source - either a timer or circuit board
Check the timer and/or circuit board for any bad connections, burned connections and power to the board or timer. This arrangement can vary by refrigerator model number...

Defrost problem on a LG Bottom Freezer Refrigerator


You have a problem in the automatic defrost circuit. I suppose you know that !
You may have to disconnect the power from your refrigerator and use hot water in a pot or a hair drier to melt the ice away. You'll have to remove the back cover of the freezer and clear the ice from there too. You most likely have an open defrost heater and/or defrost thermostat.
If you have a tech sheet which is normally stored near the compressor section, you can trace the circuits and find your problem. If you're not comfortable with this kind of work , you'll need to call a tech to check it out for you. If you don't do something soon you'll lose all the food in both your refrigerator and freezer sections.
I hope this helps you
