4 Litre Silver Mini Fridge Repair

After just over a year of use (just out of warranty) the fridge stopped keeping things cool.
After taking out the 7 screws from the back panel the power supply PCB was revealed. On close examination it was found that the two 1000uF 25Volt electrolytic Capacitors on the power supply board were swollen (see picture below and note the pressure seals on the capacitors, both are leaking electrolyte), they were replaced and the fridge began to cool again, Result!
Do these repairs at your own risk, electricity is dangerous, you have been warned.
