Refrigerator not cooling

My Refrigerator GE Profile model PFS22SISBSS stopped working. I did some research online on my refrigerator and found out that main circuit board of GE ref is faulty. When i removed the circuit board I found that there a couple of capacitor swollen and U14 chip is burned. I went ahead and replaced the board but now its not cooling. I followed the direction, and from the list of models I dont have to cut a wire.
So when I found your website, so I followed some of your suggestion. I also checked for thermistors, and they check good. I even went ahead and replaced run capacitor and still not cooling.
what else can I do?Answer
Hi Dan,Replacement parts in General Electric PFS22SISBSS Refrigerator
What I need to know is…
Is the compressor running now?
Was the compressor running before the board was replaced?
Are the fans running?
Where the fans running before the board was replaced?
I am guessing with the swollen capacitor the low voltage side was too low or out completely. There is also a chance that the fan was shorted out and took out the old main board as well as the new one. Lets hope not but this can happen.
