    Do you hear any sounds coming from the compressor?

    Does the digital display inside the refrigerator read normal?

    If the compressor isn't receiving any power, then the control board is bad and it will need to be replaced. If the compressor is receiving power, then you could have a bad start device on the compressor not allowing the compressor to start. If the control board and start device are both good, then you most likely have a bad compressor. If the compressor is bad, then you will need a licensed and trained repair technician to fix the problem (also very expensive).

    These are the parts for your model:

    Single Digit Control Board - 5303918341

    There's only the light coming on when I open the door, no fans running, no clicking fron the compressor relay, no display. I'll assume it's the control board and order one. Thank you!

    That control board controls the fans and compressor. Sometimes if a number is flashing on the display, it can indicate an error code, that is why I was asking. If there is no lights displaying on the digital readout of the control board, then that usually indicates a failed board. It sounds like this is probably your problem. You could do a voltage test at the control board to make sure it is receiving power. This would confirm the board failure.
