Question about Refrigerators
Avanti EWC16B (wine cooler) does not work anymore after a power surge in our building. Which part of this cooler could have been affected and is it easy to repair? http://www.avantiproducts.com/parts/ewc16b_exploded_view_and_parts_list.pdf
A lot of time during storms the control boards in appliances get messed up. Try unplugging it and plugging it back in after about 20 seconds. A lot of times that will reset the controls.....if they did not get fried.

Testimonial: "I enjoyed the detailed explanation. The fuse was indeed blown, but the diode probably as well. But can anything else be blown??"
There is a 2.5A 240V fuse soldered onto the main pcb board at the rear of the unit. Likely it is blown. It is covered with black heatshrink. You will need to solder a new one in. Also the diode 1N4007 that is near the fuse sometimes blows. This is a common diode that will cost about $1. You can probably use something close like anything else in the 1N400X series. This diode is near the edge of the pcboard on the same side as the fuse..

The issue could be the cold control, timer, wiring, or the compressor.
The temp control has to be closed for voltage to get to the timer. The timer then calls for the fans and compressor to run. The timer could have stalled after a defrost cycle or the cold control could not be sending voltage to the timer.
