ok - we will turn both dials to anticlockwise to off and then back on.
no there is no build up of ice
The local technician went to see the fridge/freezer. It is running slow and the fridge is coolish but the freezer not freezing.
The compressor he said did not seem too hot - he thinks due to running slow.
The fridge is set in a recess which has 3 sides wood pannelling and the fridge has little room behind it. Is it possible that with the heat (35 C) that the fridge has overheated and that is response it has slowed down?
I asked him to pull it away from the back wall 3 or 4 cms more. We can also create a hole/holes in the wall behind. Any advice or thoughts?
PS Happy to pay more
Yes. No cooling in freezer. Odd that there would be no refidgerant. It is 18 months old.
If the compressor is gone then can it be easily replaced?
Is the issue of heat buildup a possibility? IIs pulling out from the wall likely to have no effect?
Would you send it off for repair if you were me?any more checks we should do?
Checked it 2 or 3 hours ago. I will contact the shop that I bought it from and check with Hotpoint.
