Help needed identifying transistor

  1. Hi!

    I'm trying to repair a 24 Volt refridgerator commonly used in charter
    busses. I've found one pair of identical transistors where one of them have
    an C-E short. The transistors are located in the control-unit providing
    power for the compressor-motor.

    The transistor is produced by Motorola (logo found) and are marked TE2162.
    Also, its in SOT93 package. Testing the known good one, tells me that it is
    an Darlington-transistor.

    It seems impossible to find an replacement or equivalent for this component
    and every shop I visit tells me that this is a special produced
    Motorola-component and that I might as well forget about it in the first
    place. Well, I would not...

    Can anybody help?

    Greetings, Jørn
  2. You should trace out the circuit it is in to see if it is a
    complementary pair. If so, then the good one is PNP, then the bad one
    is NPN.
