    Default Refrigerator Electrical Control Box

    Need some help in diagnosing this problem.
    I have a Kenmore refrigerator model 25360502413
    Problem: Compressor starts, condenser fan runs, evap fan not running. After a few minutes, the evap fan runs, and compressor and condenser fan stops. Then everything shuts down for about 2-3 minutes, then restarts normally. Runs for a few minutes, then everything shuts down again. Repeats.

    Tested the compressor, ohms out OK. Start device OK. I do get a frost pattern forming when the system is running correctly. As I say, the interval is only a few minutes running before shutting down.

    I replaced the control box Part # 5304507171 - Electronic control defrost board. Non-serviceable. Does have berg connector test points, but it's a factory test point.
    Replacing the control box did not fix the problem. Same problem where the system starts and then powers off. Lights are on, but power to the compressor and fans are not getting power. Tried to place the control box in service mode. Key dance on the light switch, press 3 times, then fourth and listen to a beep to confirm service mode. Can't get the box in service mode after multiple tries. Disconnected power, wait 5 minutes, connect power, still cannot enter service mode. Problem continues.

    I suspect I got a bad control box, but I'm wondering if anyone else has seen this problem before, and if there are any ideas to look at.

    Same as this one?

    The tech sheet...

    Unless there is a loose wire somewhere, can't see anything else beside the control boards that may do this.
