Just replaced the mother board and all was well for a few days. Now the temps in the fridge and freezer are not holding. I removed the compressor relay. I guess there are 2 parts the Relay/Start device WR07X10097 and the Run Capacitor WR62X79 Are the 2 holes the ones pointed put in red, the ones i need to Ohm out? When these usually fail do they fail open or closed? I'm getting a open/no reading.

Overload, start relay, run capacitor.
I usually don't, but you can ohm them, should show continuity....open or no continuity would be bad.

Is the compresor not running?....clicking on and off?
Compressor start device Manufacturer Number WR07X10097

I think the compressor is running. It's hot, but clicks every couple of minutes. Fan is running and new motherboard. It was good after the motherboard replacement. However it took awhile for the temps in fridge and freezer to come down to set temps. Now they are not holding temps.

Clicking on and off normally is not running....if running for a bit but then clicking off, I would suspect a compressor drawing too much current and shutting of fo nthe overlaod.

Then may not be relaited if the compressor ran ok after the first repair.
