Fuse blowing on model #lat8440oaa w

This machine has worked well for the three years I have owned it, butrecently I blew a fuse when I started the machine. I replaced the fuse, a 1 amp 250 volt fuse and the same thing happened. the machine is in excellent condition but dates back to 1992. the model # is lat8440aa. My question is, what is causing the problem? Is it as simple as a lid switch or is it more serious?

How do you replace the fuse on the control board


The fuse on the CCU control board cannot be replaced.
Unless you would have a fuse that blew from age, replacing would not solve the reason why the fuse blew. A new one could equally blow when you start the machine.

Turn on with your fan flat out and rear demister on, see if that makes a difference.

Why does the starter/fuel fuse keep blowing out?


It depends on the year make and model what is running on that circuit.
Something is pulling too much current, just like when a fuse in the house blows.

Hello I own a whirlpool Fridge + Freezer.


Hi lewis,

This is very suspect if it blew straight away I would suspect the compressor going to earth, I am still not convinced with the comp after all ts ten year life is up, It could be something to do with the thermal overload on the comp if it has one.
The compressor does run for 12 hours but in that twelve hours does it reach temp? does it actually switch off on its normal routine?
where about in the uk are you?
