    Our "auto" fridge has not been working on engine batt. Either on auto or manual. It faulted No10 which meant it was not seeing the engine running.
    I took the covers off the outside today and discovered a little box where all the power leads went in.
    On removing the cover there was a "push fit" connector not fully home. Pushed it in till it clicked and job is now sorted. :thumb:

    Always knew you were a mechanic Ken :Smile: Isn't it nice when the fault is a simple one ?

    Brilliant!

    I am delighted for you as I know how often things like this have happened to me...

    Don't, what ever you do, spoil the happiness you feel now by asking "Why didn't I do that sooner?"

    JJ :Cool:

    Always a recipe for success when you match the skill of the mechanic to the complexity of the fault :Laughing::Laughing:

    'Happy Puppy' :Eeek:

    My imagination has failed me. A puppy is YOUNG, energetic and trusting. I'm sorry Munchie but a Happy Puppy you are definitely not :Angry:.

    I can understand you being over the moon or very happy at the result but 'Happy old fart' would have been far more suitable :thumb:.

    It's penny pinching scum like you putting dealers out of work.

    What should have happened......

    Will you look at my fridge.

    Yeh book it in, two week on Friday OK ?

    Sorry sir, it's faulty. That will be £100


    I know it's faulty.

    Ah, but now Sir, it's officially faulty. The combublicator is burned out.

    Gulp, the combublicator. Is that expensive ?

    'fraid so Sir. £350 plus fitting plus diagnostics, that's £550.

    Gulp, gulp. All that ?

    Yes Sir, but I have a better suggestion.


    Yeeeeeeeeeeeessssss ?

    A whole new fridge. Latest model. Fitted for £675 plus the £100 examination charge.

    Oh you have saved me, thank you.

    Whilst you're on a roll, having fiddled and fixed the fridge, I wonder if now would be a good time to do your tax return :Wink:. Just a thought.

    I'll contact Mr Osborne straight away. He will surely be able to make adjustments to the system to bring you into the net :Laughing:
