You can also easily get fibre washers in the wrong place. I have also had problems with fibre plug leads, so always use a wire lead. Suppressor should stop TV etc. interference. Hope you kept the old condenser that was working, Many times I have had new duds or new soon soon fail.

Hi Mike

Hope it helped you to get it sorted quicker than me - my issue drove me to distraction for over a week :evil:

Change the condenser test the coil could be breaking down.
