Hi

 

Has both the fridge and freezer defrosted?

 

Also can you hear the compressor at the back running?

 

Regards

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Both has defrosted, compressor not running,


Is there a separate compressor for the fridge & freezer?

Expert:  Daniel T. replied 3 years ago.

Hi

 

Ok these have just the single compressor which cools both the fridge and freezer.

 

As its not running then its either a compressor fault or control board at the top.

 

To see which is faulty you need to pull the appliance out and looking at the compressor you will see a plastic cover on the left side.

Remove this and locate the black wire which is usually towards the top. Check to see if you have 240v there. If you do the compressor is the fault.

If there isn't then the control board at the top is faulty and will need to be replaced.

 

There isn't much in there which can cause this usually its either the compressor or control board so if you can check them out and see which it is.

Hi Daniel,


I have main supply voltage at the compressor, & appear to have switched voltage at the compressor because if i press & hold the super frost button on the control panel the control panel momentarally trips out & i lose the switched power at the compressor,


When the control panel comes back on again a few seconds later the voltage returns at the compressor,


So i am assuming the compressor assy is u/s,


 


Regards,

Hi

 

Ok if you have 240v to the compressor live feed and its still not running then its looking like the compressor is the fault here im afraid.
