Given the fan wasn’t running with the new board, I ordered a fan assembly. I installed it this morning. After plugging it back in, I ran the tests n they all worked. The fan worked on the fan test. I put it all back together n it’s already down to 40 degrees. I still don’t understand why its 8.1 volts and not 12.7v, but the fan runs. Interestingly, as I was removing the old fan assembly, another wire (blue) just fell out of the connector. Like it was barely attached. Same thing that happened the first time around with the red wire (my initial problem post from awhile back) when I put in a separate connector for it. I thought of putting the old main board back in to see what happens with the new fan, but decided to leave well enuf alone. It’s running and that’s all I care about. And since I finally replaced those diodes (also from the first problem post), I hope to have ice some time tomorrow.

Excellent @craftydad glad to hear your back in business.(y)

That's a mystery to me too as well, never seen that 8.1 volts DC before when it should be 12.7 volts DC.

Good job fixing it.:)

Thanks for the update!
