Hiya,
Can you post the model number of the appliance please?
It's on a label inside the fridge.

Have you checked below the doors to see if the grill or the condenser is blocked with fluff?

Thanks

Hiya,
Thanks for that.

Can you advise on the other question I asked?

Thanks

Yes clear of fluff

Hiya,
OK, thanks for that.

Reach up the side of the water dispenser.
You'll find a switch in there.
Switch it off.
See if the area the seals sit on goes colder.

There's a built in heater for the area between the doors.
It's normally switched on if there's a problem with condensation between the doors.

Let me know what you find.

Thanks

The seals have cooled down with switch off

Hiya,
OK, run it for a while and see how it goes.

Hopefully it's simply been the switch turned on previously when the front board was replaced.

Just post here again if you find you still need help.

Hope this helped
Thanks
