Arriving at the client's house, I found that his refrigerator did not cool either in the freezer or in the refrigerator. After removing the lower rear access panel and pulling the fridge out of the wall, I found that the compressor was not running, although the condenser fan motor was operational. Testing the two larger wires that connect to the compressor inverter board, I detected 120 volts and found that the two smaller wires provided 5 volts. These results indicated that the compressor inverter was faulty. To resolve the issue, I unplugged the fridge and replaced the faulty compressor inverter. This caused the compressor to start running and both the freezer and fridge to start cooling again.
