No. Have just switched off fridge and wiped it down but there was hardly any frost.
Problem is that we are away for two months from 1/9 and do not want to lumber flat-minder with this problem. Is it worth getting someone in to replace defrost timer or just try to get a new fridge, bearing in mind that this one is quite old and has sounded laboured for some time.
Just opened fridge about 15 mins after switching it on again and a thin layer of frost is on back wall.
Also, are you suggesting we defrost just the fridge or freezer as well?
If it's an expensive repair, is buying a new fridge/freezer more sensible, if pricey?
