*HELP* Me Fridge w/i Electronic is Shot ! ? !

Help.. who ever knows a bought Fridges, well a bought 2months ago my refrigerator control board went bad on our 3yr old (S. by S.) Frigidaire, bought a new board & thought we were gold.. no...
My Ice maker & water control board smoked & powered down, I went on line & got another one, well 5min later it went out,
more smoke & no power, the seller will not replace the part or refund my money..
I need to get this repaired, but can't afford to call a repair person xxx amount to come out to tell me what I know,
then order the part just to go through the same problem then pay them another xxx amount to come back out &
dig deeper into the problem.
Any help would be great.. I tried to look on line for more info on this problem &
I seem to be the only person in the world w/this issue
Ohh.. if it helps the power/wafer board has a burnt spot & bubble in the center of it (see pic)

You can replace that board with a brand new one and it's still not going to fix your fridge. Your board could be grounding out (touching something metal) when you have it installed. Did you see any char anywhere else where the board is?

The burnt spot and bubble is probably due to heat (obviously) and probably caused by an overcurrent on the bus. Unfortunately, lots of things can cause that situation.

You've gone through 3 boards so far, correct? I don't believe that the board is the actual problem. That board looks like a power supply. I would suspect that the real problem lies within what that board is providing power to.

Thx guys, your the best

DarkriderI've gone through 2 boards as of now, yikes () not 3, no metal touching
that I can see, the board sits in a plastic housing, that runs the water & Ice maker (dispenser's) .
the only other spot I see on them that are bad, is the two switch's that allows the Ice or water to run,
the male pugs to the switch's are black, instead of silver colored.

No, their is no water around the area of the entire board(s),
if your wondering, yea water is close but not one droplet to be found,
plus theirs a cover to keep water back from hitting the wafer board/control board.

This board makes the ice & water to come out, theirs a switch board further up from it
that allows you to to make changes to the ice (crush/cubed), light, 5-6 buttons to run
odd things, but its just a button board.

But it's not "just a button board". That coil on the left side with all of the relays (or what appear to be relays) to the right of the coil call this out as a power supply. I would personally be looking at the items that this board is powering. Is the fridge working (aside from the ice/water dispenser)?

So the button board could be bad.. & causing a short in dispenser board ??

Yea, the fridge works fine, 4 now, I'm just worried, one thing goes bad &
other things do go bad down the road (past experience),
plus I bought a bunch of water filters, in one lump sum to save money when we first got the fridge 3yrs ago
So now that the water/Ice doesn't work, we are stuck using tap water & ours
is not the best, our town water taste like irrigation water
We looked into filtered water, for the house, its to expensive & why do the hole house..
we did think of using those facet type, filters, but those hang down to low &
we would need to change out our kitchen facet & we just bought it a yr ago.
