Wait a second -- there are aftermarket sites that offer the Viconics replacement board?! If that is the case, I'll buy it -- I didn't find any such sites or an inexpensive location to buy it. More importantly, it seemed like it was simply a matter of taking it to an electronics repair store, as advised earlier, and I could just get the relays replaced and that would be easier / less expensive.
I'm not "hell-bent" on anything, I'm just trying to get it running. It seemed like the idea of a electronics repair shop was a good idea, but I have to figure out a way to convince them to take it -- none of them seem to want to have anything to do with it, but I feel that if I can get enough information to determine whether it's the relays, I could convince them just to replace the relays.
You have to admit -- if it's passing the voltage, but not the current, it sounds like it would be an easy fix for the repair service, if I could just get one to take it.
wrench -- there is no pilot relay (it's elec). There is a compressor "connector" which is triggered by 28v which is passed when the two KLT1C12DC12 are triggered. The connector works fine, and the 28v is sent to the relay fine. The KLT1C12DC12 is the part that appears to be bad, but I'm still confused on how it could pass voltage but not any level of current, because it doesn't seem like it's possible with a relay to go semi-bad, it would be all or nothing.
