This unit was given free gratis to a person who took it knowing there was a possible problem.  It actually worked pretty good  when I  ran a load of clothes yesterday with no leaks

The compressor is a model : MSV172AL2J/SM3. I got 12 ohms on the pins no matter which configuration. On the inverter board I noticed that the led comes on when plugged in but then turns off and remains off. Suggestions?

I'm working on a Samsung refrigerator with the family hub, model rf265beaesg/aa. The home was struck by lightning and the refrigerator went out. The invertor board had a bad bridge and blown fuse, I replaced the board and powered it up and now it shows 44c communication error. I found that the main pcb is sending out 5v comp signal, the condenser fan activates, but no compressor. I am not sure if it is the main pcb or compressor at this point and would appreciate any help/suggestions. Thank you.

Hey Houptee, I'm ready to throw in the towel on this if the new compressor could have been damaged. Are the odds good that doing the software update on the new board will fix the problem? If not, it's the scrap heap for the LG. thanks,

If compressor is running it might be leak in sealed system or under or overcharged. How did you evacuate and weigh in the charge? It only needs the amount of 134a shown on the decal inside the fridge. Do you have guages hooked up to high and low side? When off the pressures should equalize at approximately 40psi and when running low side is very low almost 0 sometimes and around 100 high side. Pressure depends on the ambient temperature of the room but that is ballpark what to look for.
Many techs blow out the condenser with nitrogen and find black sludge comes out so some say they just automatically put in nrw condenser if doing compressor on LG to avoid call back.
The hole next to the pilot tube is clear? That sends the gas down to the pilot and makes it light. I am so use to doing these that I don't even think about it most of the time.

It is difficult to tell by the description but I suggest you recheck   ALL  the connectors for  all the thermostats,  flame sensor, and the start switch. I am referring to the push on type connectors and the wires themselves.   When it fails to start will it restart properly after several minutes ?  You should also consider a temporary bypass  of the various componenets, one at a time  to verify.

It lights nine out of ten times. You may not remember this part but I already removed and cleaned the orifice, and after I reinstalled it the simmer burner lit but the flame was too high, so I incrementally tightened the fitting until the simmer flame matched the other burners, so I think itís getting the right amount of gas. It must be some other minor issue.
