How are your diy skills?
Do you have, and can you use, a multimeter?

Yes quite good, I have a digital fluke meter
Unplug the appliance.

You need to gain access to the control board in the facia panel.

From memory and looking at the exploded view, the top comes off to do this.

Once you gain access, look for the mains in wires (normally brown and blue).

Test for continuity between the plug top pins and the brown and blue wires.

Let me know what you find.

Also check the board for obvious damage.

Lorks a lawdy..... Have taken top off and during the process, the internal lamp burst into life! Then the green temp light started flashing at +8 degrees in an attempt to bring the temp back down. Checked for loose connections but all seems ok....have put top back on pushed fridge back into orifice. Might get a cold beer tonight after all.
OK, thanks for that.

You should have had it unplugged though.

If it's come on, I'd suspect a bad connection on the incoming leads.

However, if it's running, keep an eye on it and see what happens.

If it goes off again.
Unplug it.
Take the top off and check closer on the wires and plugs.

Good luck with the appliance.

Hope this helped
