probably over night - say 12 hours
thanks i will defrost for 24 hours and try again. any problems then i will come back - excelent so far.
i have defrosted the freezer completely overnight and restarted it this morning. i am getting a green light and the fan is working. but what i think is the black compressor at the bottom rear starts and then clicks off within 1/2 seconds. the freezer isnt getting cooler currently. sounds a bit nasty to me - any help you can offer now? thanks
looks like the compressor. the fan is working but the compressor still just clicks on and then off straight away.
