Appliance Repair Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
If the freezer is ok still but the fridge has gone off then the fault will be to do with the freezer. As the fridge gets its cooling from the freezer. A fan in there blows the cold air into the fridge section. So if the fridge goes warm its usually either a blocked evaporator stopping the air flow or the fan is faulty.
What you need to do is empty the freezer and remove the rear panel in there.
There you will see the evaporator. If this is blocked with ice you will need to use a hairdryer and melt the ice.
Once the ice is melted retry the appliance and this should get the fridge working again.
Fingers crossed its just a one off but if it happen again then theres a fault on the defrost side of it. Usually either the defrost heater or thermal cut out is the cause. The heater is wrapped around the evaporator so will need to be tested with a multi meter to see if faulty.
But if you don't want to go removing panels then you need to empty the freezer and turn it off and leave the freezer doors open for 24 hours and this will allow it to defrost itself.
