Default Dimplex DAC12004RC Teardown and Repair

Our number 1 heatpump decided to cease operation the other day...
Both the fans came on but no clunk and rumble from the compressor.
Getting it apart was a little interesting, needed a posi drive screwdriver almost 200mm long.

The culprit turned out to be a crimp lug that got a little loose, got hot and turned into a fuse.
Fix was pretty quick with a new lug.
