the bulb blow so i got a replacement which does not light. now being a
competent electronics design engineer i worked out its either the door
switch contacts or internal wiring somewhere.
anyone taken one of these apart to gain access to the top?
i emailed lec a week ago but no reply and yes the fridge is ok. just
disconcerting when you open the door and no light.
I know when we were at college (early 1980's) they called us sparkies! and
yes we did do some work with over 5 volts.
the bulb its self is fused but i have not pulled the fridge out from under
its hole as yet.
just hoped someone here had been in to one before.
After a few hours hair pulling i got the lamp holder off and found 1 of the
blades (neutral side) needed a slight bend to make contact. very crude lamp
holder the screw thread is brass but isolated so the bulb relies on side
pressure to make contact and a typical brass contact for the tip of the
bulb. Not sure how long the tweak will last but if it goes again I'll get a
new SES holder as there is plenty of room in the light housing.
All working now.
