How do you remove and replace Eurocave performance control board Eurocave 283

The control panel is held up by two hidden screws (that are not removed) that slide into slots of the top front of the panel and 2 removable Philips screws at the back of the control panel which hold up both the controls and circulation fan.

Unplug the unit. Open the door, remove both chrome screws in the ceiling behind the control panel and put them where you can reach them.
While holding up the fan assembly, slide the control panel forward. It may bind a bit so work it forward carefully to prevent scratching the black finish.
As you pull it forward the fan will want to drop down, so once the control panel has moved forward enough to clear the fan panel (about 1/2") you can insert the screws and finger tighten them to hold up the fan as you remove the panel.

Label the wires before unplugging as they are not all individually keyed and look very similar. Note any unused connectors. You need to unplug the large black power connector, black wire for fan connector, and a white temperature sensor wire(s) before removing the panel. You can leave connected the white wires for lights, display and local humidistat that are part of the panel until the panel is removed.

The power supply board and display board are mounted to the control panel assembly with screws and connected by a ribbon cable and wires. Label any remaining connectors and wires before removing the circuit cards. I think the ribbon cable is only removable on the display board and permanently attached to the power supply board. There are replacement parts available from as well as 3rd party Eurocave circuit card repair services you can find on the internet.

When reassembling follow the opposite order and note the fan panel mounts ABOVE the control panel on the ceiling of the unit. Gently slide the control panel into backwards into place lining up the slots onto the fixed 2 screws while holding up the fan panel and then install the 2 screws behind it to hold both in place.

When plugged in, the compressor doesn't activate. When you press the test button, the compressor turns on. After doing that about fivetimes, the compressor won't even flip on? This is a Eurocave Model...

Model no. 210e/3 which when plugged in throws the trip switch . owned by Bob Earl, Earls Court, Cotham, Newark. NG23 5JS

This is a serious malfunction and is most likely caused by the compressor or fan motor being defective or a severely damaged cable.

First, with the mains plug removed from the mains socket check the plug for being loose or any damage. Take off the top cover and check that the wires are still firmly anchored to the connecting posts and the securing screws are tight. Check that there are no stray wires showing and make sure that the outer cable sheath is firmly secured by the nylon securing strap. Then check that the mains cable from the plug to the appliance has not been cut, crushed or appears to be damaged in any way or has been lying in water. Also make sure that there is no fluid leaking out of the unit.

Then try plugging the unit into a different socket to make sure that the socket itself is not defective. If this is OK then the most likely case of the problem will be a compressor or fan motor seizure. This will need a service engineer visit to rectify the problem. Contact EuroCave directly on 0207 935 4679 if you are in the UK or your nearest fridge servicing engineer.

Eurocave digital thermometer

The digital temperature display on the EuroCave has a small lithium battery that can be replaced by removing the bezel around the display. This was all that was needed to solve the problem.
