Guys I'm darran I'm a domestic engineer and refrigerator engineer your main board has failed thus sending power to the interlock continuously. You will need to change the main pcb and door interlock with the serial and industrial number these are on the stuck on door rim you can get the part from espares. Com. Guys hope this helps. Regards darran

Why would the interlock need changing, it appears to be working correctly
