SOURCE: We have a Kelvinator Opal

Hi there!
From what you say it is evident there is a short circuit. Probably the live wire is passing electricity to the body of your Kelvinator. For your protection, the main circuit board trips off. (Otherwise you will get an electrc shock).
Now you have to find out where the short is.
Unplug it first.
Open the plug (if it can be opened) and check for damages or whether live and earth wires are touching.
If there is no problem with the plug, check along the wire for cuts or damages. Specially check where it touches the body of the refrigerator.
If the short-circuit occurs at an internal component like the compressor, there is little you can do.

You may be able to use the fridge by removing the earth wire from the plug, but this will be life-threatening. I strongly advise you not to do that.

N520 fridge is leaking water onto the floor

Clean the drain situated at back (inside) of fridge cabinet (not the freezer). Use a piece of expanding wire about 1 meter long to get around the 90degree bend and into the water tray sitting on top of
This pipe often gets blocked with food particles.
If problem persists it is usually the defrost cycle being too long and in this case the defrost cut-off sensor will need to be replaced .

We did not receive a manual with our fridge and need to know what temperatures to set it at. It is a two door fridge with a bottom drawer freezer and digital settings. Can you helps? Also do you know how...

If you set both in the middle settings thats generally best. 1 is the on/off and compressor control to run the box temperature, the remaining will say colder /warmer, this can be misleading however as colder actually is colder freezer! not reefer box! so to max that one actually makes the reefer warmer and freezer colder!

Hinch for Freezer/Fridge doors is broken,Kelvinator/fridge Freezer Model Opal-N520F-L My address is 30 Murraba Crescent, Tweed Heads 2465, NSW Where can I get the part

Thanks for the reply,
I solved the problem by finding an old warrent card with aphone number which I rang and was tild a nother number and that Electrolux is holding parts for Kelvinator, the nearest Electrolux branch for me was at NERANg a 30 minute drive. Their had the spare part for $20 and I replaced the hinch with a spanner. All is well as good as new.
Amazing how would one know that Elextrolux is holding service parts for Kelvinator, Westinghouse and others, unbelievable really
