How can I check that? I know how to get into diagnostic mode but I don't now how to use it.
Thanks in advance.

I dismantled the old actuators out of curiosity - one was rusty and the other just didn't seem to have much torque.
I also managed to get a new and improved cable harness - it's a metal rod that hinges from a bracket screwed into the left corner and is MUCH better than the old plastic thing that had broken in half at some stage.

On lifting the bottom draw out, there was a small puddle sitting in the bottom tray adjacent to the electrical control panel so I assume this has activted some kind of moisture detection system, hence the F1 alarm.
I have turned off the electrics, mopped up the surface water and applied the hairdryer. I will now leave it over night for any residue moisture to evaporate and see if it wants to be nice to me in the morning.
Any other remedial steps that I should take before applying the power?

The next time was caused by the lid on the top drawer not sealing at all on the right side - the actuator motor on that side which pulls the lid down when the drawer is used had failed (probably due to water penetration). I got a pair of "new improved" actuators from a local appliance repair shop and replaced the right hand side actuator on both drawers as the bottom one didn't seem to be working as well as it should either. At the same time I got a replacement part for the broken wiring harness.

ethicalfix: How do i put the system into diagnostics, in order to test the actuators per your instructions?
Also, where might I get the new actuators/metal-hinged wire harness?
the wiring harness is not broken, but one poster didn't have a broken harness but had to use a bungy to pull it down out of the seal.

"now sealing" should be "Not Sealing".
"retesting with an empty Drawer" (drill?)
