Resolved Question:

I have a Bosch refrigerator KTL15420GB. This morning it went off and I had to go to the electricity box and push up the switch. It did not come on but later I switched it off and pushed the fuse up in the switch. This seemed to help and it came on for a short while.
It is not on now and when I moved the temperature control which normally clicks there were no clicks. Although there seems to be some noise the temperature is not going down.
Do you thihnk it is the thermostat of do I need a new fridge. It iwas purchased in 2003.
