Hello,
I am Tech Michael and I will be assisting you today.
Please be patient with us as these are technical questions and some testing may be required.
It may take a bit of back and forth conversation to be sure we have all the information in order to make a proper diagnosis.
May I have the full model #?
Also approximately, how old is the freezer?
Thank you
Tech Michael

Mo-del;no. XXXXXXXXXXX(NNN) NNN-NNNN these are the numbers on the inside of the fridge. When we moved into our home the fridge/freezer was already installed we have been here for about 8 years, sorry Michael can't tell you exactly

Thank you Margaret,
This is a defrost issue, its a common problem that eventually hits all fridges lol.
In order to fix this you will meed a cheap multi meter, and some basic hand tools.
I will help you all the way with this repair and you can save a lot doing this one yourself, its not difficult just a process is all:-)
Did you want to go that route?
If so I will stick with you until this is complete but

what sort of tools are we looking at? to do job bearing in mind this is a bank holiday and we would not be able to deal with this until after weekend, thank you.

Expert:  Michael replied 3 years ago.
Hi Margaret, you will need a few good screwdrivers philips head and flat head, pliers, and maybe a nut driver set.
I will talk you through this, what you will need to do is remove the shelves from the freezer and then the rear wall will be removed. in there you will see the components that make up the defrost parts. One of then is no longer functioning so therefore the unit is icing up up so fast.
The best thing to do in this case since you aren't a tech, is to replace the three parts you will find there. I will also let you know the best place to get them ;-)
Please rate kindly and I will lock us in, no additional costs to you for that. When you are ready to proceed with the repair, you will then simply reply to this message and I will get that information and reply
Thank you Margaret and have a great weekend!
