Waeco CF50 - Not Cooling

Hi All. I have a 7 year old Weaco CF50 been perfect until this week :) . It has stopped cooling I can hear the compressor start but it cuts out after 30secs or so. I have tried it on 12v and 240v - same issue. However if I run it on the emergency bypass - it works and froze a 2ltr bottle of water in normal time.

ANY ideas for further diagnosis before I attempt to pull it apart. Also it has error light when on normal fridge setting!

cheers Aaron

Sounds like an electronic fault if it is working in bypass mode

Mine did a similar thing and they replaced the keypad circuit board, it turned out the problem was caused by moisture ingress corroding the circuit board from me cleaning with too muchwater around the keypad area
Can't help you with repair cost as mine was done as a warranty job luckily

Had the same problem with a out-of-warranty-but-almost-never-used CF50. Needed a replacement circuit board at almost half the price of a new fridge! Service agent cannibalised a dead unit and fixed mine for about $300.
