We have an Indesit fridge freezer from about the late 0's. We noticed the fridge was not cool, and in fact got warm on top. Turns out the years of weight on the door had bent it just enough to misalign the light switch with the bump it should press against.
The bulb ended up melting the plastic cover. After it was replaced, the fridge did not come on at all: no compressor, no light, just a big, white, dead box.
What is the likely cause and how do I fix it?
I have a multimeter and tools, but have never worked on a fridge before.
My suspicion is it is a blown fuse. Where are they located?
Any help gratefully received. Thanks in advance,
Malcolm

Hi Malcolm,

Unfortunately, We have no tech. data information on European models, try a appliance repair forum closer to where you live. UK Whitegoods is one.
