Question about Freezers
my freezer has stopped working. On this model cannot find a thermostat just a circuit board. The freezer will start if I tap the circuit board, it will then cool down, later the freezer will defrost as again the pump will not cut in unless i tap the circuit board. Do I need to replace the whole board or am I missing something obvious?
Ive just revived one of these with similar symptoms that eventually died completley. A trawl of the internet shew that the most common fault is the SHRACK relay on the board. An Omron G5LE-14 relay is a better quality replacement at minimal cost. Its a ten minute job to replace it with a soldering iron. The RS part number is 369-488. However they are sniffy about dealing with non trade account holders by mail so if you dont have a trade counter nearby Rapid Electronics are a better bet (part number 60-4198). If you are really mean over postage there are also some ebayers offering the same part (e.g. lesjacksam) double check part numbers before going down that route though. Hope this helps somebody.

Check for loose connection on circuit board, if no loose connection on board replace it. check the board for loose connections with the machine unplugged
