Default putting solo in cold area

Solo stopped turning on. With PWR button all 3 lights (H/A/C) flashing but no other signals.
Did put in cold area (freezer shelve) and it is turned on fine!
But not for a long time. After 10 min it is dead again.
Any clue what could be wrong? Could it be printed board problem? Horn connection?
Pretty old model but i like cordless design

There might be a micro-fracture in one of the traces on the logic board. When cold, the logic board contracts and the micro-fracture closes. At warmer temperatures, it expands, opening up the micro fracture.

I'm no engineer, but this seems plausible.
