There is a white pop out screw cover covering one of the screws and the other is behind the lamp and lamp cover.
See the drawing here it may help.
Good luck with the repair.
You haven't actually paid until you click accept. Once you do this, you don't have to pay again for the same question.
I'll continue working with you.
Unplug the appliance before working on it.
If the compressor is not coming on at all. Take the thermostat out again and mark the wires according to where they are on the thermostat.
The wires from 4 and 6, take them off and join them together.
Insulate them then plug the appliance in. If the compressor starts then the thermostat is faulty.
Unplug the appliance again and get a new thermostat.
Be very careful with the capillary tube, don't bend it flat and don't snap it, this renders the thermostat useless.
Hope this helps.
Just spotted your other post.
What is the follow up question?
You've deduced that the thermostat may be faulty and given what you've posted here I would have to agree that the next step would be to replace the thermostat and see if it cures the fault.
Just cancel the other post, any other questions on this fault, just add to this post.
Many thanks for this. I am very satisfied with the help you are giving me. I will order a new thermostat and hope that does the trick. You don't supply spares do you? I'd rather you made a profit than somebody else.
Sorry, I don't. I just repair the machines.
Good luck with the repair. Hopefully it's just the thermostat at fault.
