This would suggest a main board failure, if you can provide me with the model number of the fridge I can give you a estimate for getting this repaired.

Many thanks for the prompt reply

On checking on the unit spec, I now have a few extra questions, can you confirm if you have tried using this on both 12V and mains?

The fact the light is illuminated we know power is getting to the box, which rules out a fuse, it could be the inverter \ transformer which has failed, the best way to rule this out is to check it on both power supplies and see if the control panel illuminates.

This is looking to be a case of getting it to a repair centre, as the fault is hardware based, a transformer costs around £50 in parts and a control panel £100, if you take it to a repair centre they will at least be able to diagnose the exact fault and give you a fixed price for repair, if you provide me with your post code I can advise you of your nearest repair centre.



Hello I am just following up from last week, do you still require assistance, if the above suggestion has resolved your issue I would appreciate if you could rate the service received.

Many thanks
