Question about Fisher and Paykel Active Smart® E522BR Stainless Steel Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
I have a F & P fidge < 5 years old (freezer at the bottom) . The fridge is draining power and cuase intermittent power surge which result in the electricity circle break and power supply failure.
I am unsure whether this is related to the compressor or the motor. Should I get a new fridge or this could be a simple problem which could be ratified by a qualified repeairer?
The fridge is generally working fine apart from draing electricity and cuase circle break.
On the old F n P fridges they use to use a 12v motor that was open shaft, there fore it wouldnt have a earth on it. Althou it can still over current. In lame mans turns I would say that it would be the compressor.
In terms of replacement, a new compressor in generally a third of what a new fridge cost. It would be a good idea if you didnt have the money for a new fridge but on that you dont get a warrenty. If you could get a domestic refrig tech out he would be able to quote on repairs.
Hope that helps
