Question about Electrolux Frigidaire Refrigerator Control Board 242000406
My name is Peter; I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.
The two of you are on the right track.
The board that you replaced;
The electronic control board controls the major electro-mechanical components in the refrigerator. When the electronic control board senses the compressor needs to run to cool the refrigerator, it sends voltage to the compressor and fans. It then receives input from temperature sensors to monitor the temperatures inside the refrigerator and freezer sections.
This is a substitution and can not communicate with your existing electrical control board. You need tor replace this board was well:
Substitution: 241973711 Cost: $83.00
The electronic control board 241973711 controls the major electro-mechanical components in the refrigerator. When the electronic control board senses the compressor needs to run to cool the refrigerator, it sends voltage to the compressor and fans.
When you plugged in your old board and got power, that is because the two boards were communicating.
When you change the board be careful to ground yourself by touching something that is bare metal. Static electricity will knock out a board.
The Electrolux Frigidaire Refrigerator is a good unit. It should last you 20-30 years. If you want a unit that is in constant repair, buy either a Samsung or LG. They have the highest failure and repair cost of all of the manufacturers.

I am having the same problem. I installed a 5303918498 control board to replace a 242000406 which I believe is defective, but I get no power at all to the refrigerator model FPHS2699KF0. Has anyone found an answer to this problem? Please post if you have. My fridge is only 4 years old but has had increasing problems since the first year, but Frigidaire has not been helpful.

Jason, Thanks for response, Really appreciate it, Likewise I have tried 2 control boards with exact same results. No power. Did your problem start out with a 5YCE error? Thats how mine started. Was sporatic. It could be reset by unplugging and replugging. Then the last time, it pulsed with flashing display board, and was dead. I Think that its pretty poor that my refrigerator was only 4 years old. It is a Frigidair Gallery LGHS2665KF0, any similarities?
Please post your results when/if you get a solution.
I will likely be forced to purchase a new one as well, Not a Frididair of course.

Good Afternoon edgar corro, thanks for your post!
Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire freezer is displaying an error code "E8". An "E8" error code typically stands for a shorted thermistor this could be a possible miscommunication with the wiring harness, control board, or thermistor. Since it could be anyone of these underlying issues I would suggest contacting a professional technician since they have the appropriate tools to pinpoint the parts needed for repair. Best of luck! -Matt

Thank you for your post, michael!
I see that the alarm inside your Frigidaire freezer continues to beep it sounds like a potential issue within your control panel or thermistor. Your alarm will beep to inform you that the inside of your freezer is reaching high temperatures. Performing a reset on your appliance could help correct the problem, to perform a reset you need to unplug your freezer or flip the household circuit breaker off for ten minutes. I hope this has been helpful. -Matt

Hello friend, thanks for your post!
I see that your Frigidaire freezer had a power surge and you're asking what could happen. If your appliance had a power surge it could cause an issue within the board or wiring harnesses. Is your appliance giving any error code or beeping? If so, could you advise what it currently is doing? I look forward to providing you any assistance. -Matt
