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:

    The revered Samurai is right on. If the freezer is cold and the fridge is warm, you have an airflow issue. In this machine the most common causes are: The defrost terminating thermostat (see picture above,) or the evaporator fan motor. If you open the freezer door and hear the fan running, it’s not the fan.
