Question about Zanussi ZX99 / 5 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Bulbs and bottom pcb blew, replaced but still not working

The fridge blew both bulbs, and tripped the main fuse for the ring mains, replaced the bulbs and reset the fuse. fridge still not working, checked the socket and replaced the plug fuse, still not working, checked the power control board at the bottom rear and found that had also blown, replaced that too using the serial number to get the right part, but this has not solved the problem either, ive check the top board that has the led's and temp dials on but that looks to be ok.

is there anything else i need to check or that could be the cause of fridge/freezer not working?

thanks

    that sounds like it could be the cause, can you tell me where to find this capacitor?



    cheers

The start and run capacitors of the compressor can go short circuit and cause a big spike that can blow the bulbs, trip fuse etc. Inspect the capacitors for splits etc, you may well find that the start cap has blown and so there will not be enough current to get the compressor running.

    the cap / caps will either normally be bolted to the side of the compressor or in their own box + maybe with a relay in there as well, if the relay is not in a box then will be attached to the compressor. The relay may be burnt out and also could be inoperable and or stuck in one position either start or run. If you follow the main power wire from the compressor ir should lead you to the capacitors. If they are ok you could try putting a meter accross the compressor windings to see if they have gone open circuit also.

Tripping electricity


HI, The reason for the over-pull is due to the unstable conditions located at the main PCB that controls this affected unit. The voltage is not stable, due to the damage located at the PCB(circuit instabilities). Just to be safe, have your local electrician inspect the breaker box for shorts and damage to the appropriate circuit block. If the electrician confirms that the breaker is in good condition; replace the main control board(PCB) that is mounted near the compressor or behind the rear access panel.

Oven tripped fuse and will not turn on


Hi!

If the oven is not working, you need to check the fuse on the main PCB - If the fuse is good check for continuity between the fuse and L3 (drive motor terminal) - If this circuit is open the PCB is bad and must be replaced. When re-assembling please be sure all the wiring is correct.
