The cable isthe wires that were routed around the top left hinge into the left hand door. The controls on top have no lights lit up. there is no ice on the evaporator inside the back of the freezer. It is hard to pinpoint where the noise is comming from but appears to be louder at the top of the fridge. internal light is working so unit has power. If I bridge out live to run connection on compressor , the compressor runs.
There was one transistor blown on the board which I replaced, but nothing else obivious. Could there be a termal fuse stopping it fron running.
I will need a source for the board as in the hotpoint site they say the board will be unprogramed, any idea of cost as they quoted €84.
Thanks for all the info, can you give me a source for the board as I will need to get it asap
