I have a fridge with a control board da41-00411b and was told the replacement was board da41-00413k. The connectors are totally different will I need to get a Samsung tech to install it or is it easier to do than I'm thinking? My fridge model # Rf26vabwp. My problem was my condenser fan wasnt turning on and leaving my fridge not cooling fully.

Here's the main control board for your model:
Samsung DA41-00413K Pba Main


It should have the same connections as the original board.

I'd first pull your refrigerator out from the wall, then remove the lower back access panel to get access to it. It mounts next to your compressor(big black ball shaped part).

You should be getting 12 Volts DC to it, if so and its not turning, its bad.

Here's the condenser fan motor for your model:

Yeah I've already replaced the fan and got the updated board and I've replaced the fuse on the condenser. The connections for the updated da41-00413k are totally different from the original da41-00411b board.

That is very strange, I really don't know why its not matching up.

Hopefully another tech. can shed some light on this, or Contact Samsung support and ask them.
