Hi guys I'm darran I'm a refrigeration specialist

Listen be very careful these boards are non programed well the come with a basic setting and need the information downloaded from the reader

The port for the reader is at the back beside the compressor there is an oblong cream white cap take this off and attache the reader

Now the card insert it make sure it's the right way as the card is a one shot

The reader will flash and when it's done it will go solid green

Guys I hope this has helped


ThThis is a video of the smart reader with a washer but the port is the same on the rear of the fridge

Thanks for your reply we have taken the whole integrated fridge out and looked at the back we studied it and could not see any where to plug in reader? Now after getting your advice do we take the whole fridge out again !?? Did we miss the oblong covered cap?? My husband is shielding the only reason not getting anyone to fix it . I think we might struggle to take it out again if you are sure there is a plug in there ? Fingers crossed . Thanks
