Question about Freezers
It has been freezing up excessively in the freezer section for months plus the compressor working nearly all the time. The repair engineer would defrost it and the same problem would re-occur.It started making a dreadful noise from the compressor, the engineer fixed it again then the fridge freezer just stopped working completely (except for lights so it still has power). The engineer said that the only things left to replace is the board behind the fron display panel and that to access it he would "have to destroy" the front of the fridge as it has been "glued on". I haven't glued it on so assume this has been done in the factory. I don't have much confidence in this guy from previous visits so not sure if he is correct? Can you help?

Yes, boards may need replacing, but not at the expense of the door, apparantly your "engineer" would rather work on older models that may require a hammer. Best advice would be given knowing the make and model number of your unit. A professional should be able to diagnose the board processes as well as the compressor in a short amount of time. Check the defrost heater (after pwr is restored to unit) for the freezer side (placement depending upon model) for continuity (basically a heating element for the evaporator coils - which will freeze without defrost). Proper defrost will help lessen the load on the compressor. Check the overload relay on the compressor itself for failure and replacement of relay. Have the unit defrosted, svc defrost htr, thermostats/thermolinks , compressor, before checking computer board operations.
