freezer works, fridge temp. stuck at 68, think it’s the high voltage board. Where is it and how do I change it?

Hi Paul,

Having said all that to give a direct answer to your question, let me just add that, based on your problem description– cold freezer, warm fridge– I doubt very much that HV board is bad. If it were, you’d have a warm freezer, too, because the HV board powers the compressor which does all the cooling.

I think it’s much more likely that you’ve had a defrost failure. Removing the back panel to inside the freezer to look at the evaporator coil frost pattern will tell the story. If it’s choked in with frost like this one, you can be sure that’s the problem:
