Checking out DM2862 Fridge
I bought a used DM2862 and it doesn't even try to get cold. I checked the heating element and the thermistor, and they are within spec. With 12VDC and 120VAC connected, and the fridge OFF, I get 12V across the orange and red in P1. I get NO voltage between J1 and J10 or J4 and J10. I do get voltage between the red and orange on the upper board, with power ON.
These tests were done with the thermistor disconnected.
The board number is 50-965201-D, which crosses to a Dinosaur 3850712.01.
The Diagnostic Service Manual doesn't say what these results mean.
Do I need a new lower board?
