Several tools are available for you to troubleshoot the board, if a problem arises. First, open the cabinet door and view the LEDs on the board. The GE Drive Control Board DS200SDCCG1AEC is populated with ten LEDs that are arranged in a row on the board.

When the LEDs flash faster, they indicate an error code between 400 to 1023.
Test points are available on the board. They are metal posts that you can probe with a tester to test the signal paths. This procedure can only be performed by a trained servicer and the testing equipment must be approved for the purpose and also must be calibrated for the task.
Another diagnostic tool you can use is the diagnostic tools available on the drive. The diagnostic tools are accessible from the control panel and they produce a detailed description of the performance of all the components in the drive.
