I have a RF266AERS fridge that cools nice when it is first plugged in, but then starts to warm up. The LED's show the 'set' temperatures, but the reality is waaaay off. The compressor never seems to kick on, and the feedback to the main board has to be off. Is this a main board issue, or a thermistor issue, or????…. I have gone through a lot of the diagnostics, forced running to read the output etc, and unless I am doing it incorrectly, I don't see a voltage going back to kick the compressor back on. This still doesn't explain why the LED's still display the desired temperature and not the real temperature....nothing is frozen, all the temperature probes seem to read correctly. Is this a main board issue?

Thank you!
