Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset. I am Appliance Guru an extremely experienced tech on the site and I try to get to as many customers as I can. I just picked up your question now. NOTE it takes time for me to type research and add links so please wait for me to respond back I can only do this so fast. Secondly I am not paid anything until you rate my service good using the STAR RATING LINK at the top of your page, the money is paid to the site not me directly.

Does it fill with water or really do anything at all?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
it comes on and i can hear the water being pulled in and the start of the motor(condensor i am assuming) then nothing. no light, power or anything
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.

Check the power supply transformer, often they fail and that will kill power to the main board...PART#2 at this link

If you have any other questions just post back to me here anytime!

Will it be melted if it has gone bad or how else will I know if it has defaulted
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.

It may be melted, you would have to check for power out of it with a volt meter when it goes dead to be sure.
