GE wine cooler PWR04FANBBS not cooling and does not react on the buttons. I moved into the new house and it has this wine cooler. The cooler is showing 8 C temperature and that is about it. It does not react on the keys pressing (I tried the reset, did not work). The compressor is not running either. I like the unit and hoping it could be fixed. What would be a good point to start troubleshooting?

thanks!

The part you need has been discontinued and is no longer available:

That part is a Samsung # DA41-00518A. While also discontinued, it might give the OP another part number to try to track down.

JFYI

Thanks bb!
LOL.....I meant Dan O. My bad

Try disconnecting and then reconnecting all the connectors on all the boards. I'll see if I can locate the wiring diagram. Most of the time the main board stops sending the low voltage to the control board. If you have a copy of your wiring diagram, post it here.
