Hello My name is Ian ~ I am not on the site constantly so please be patient whilst waiting for responses to you queries ~ could you clarify the make and model please you have it listed as a Beko and then later as an Indesit.

Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 1 year ago.
OK I have got it, could you now give me the model number of the Inde please, I will get them to refund you the monies for the other question you have also started ~ Ian

i think it's a ufan 400 nf

Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 1 year ago.
OK that is fine, can you tell me what is wrong with the appliance please?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

went to get something out of freezer, found it wasn't working. No lights, nothing. tried different socket

Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 1 year ago.
OK have you tried the fuse first, this appliance is a fully electronically controlled unit with electronic sensors rather than the normal thermostats. Are you able to use a multimeter?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

I tried the fuse first. I haven't got a multi-meter. I don't even know what one is.

Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 1 year ago.
OK can you put your hand on the black motor (compressor) on the back and tell me if it is hot or cold?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

if I'm touching the right thing, it's cold, but not freezing

must have been off for quite some time, as a lot of the stuff is defrosted

Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 1 year ago.

CompressorRefresh the page please

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

I've seen the picture. The only difference is that my one has a silver label. I think its nc1114y

Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 1 year ago.

OK does your freezer have a fast freeze button on front? If so switch it on and tell me if the motor strikes up and runs?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

there is a super freeze button inside. When i press it nothing happens. None of the indicator lights are working. There is no pwer.

Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 1 year ago.
OK ~ well Im going to give you a bit of advice which will not solve your problem tonight but will save you money, from what you have told me the main control board has failed on this appliance which will cost you £89 plus vat this comes without programs so you then need a card reader £95 and the actual program card which is about £15 all in all more than £230. A cheaper option is to contact Indesit and get them to do a fixed price repair which will be a lot less probably around £120 all in. I realize that this is not the easy answer you wanted but unfortunately Indesit electronic boards are renowned for failing and this is you best option other than buying a new freezer ~ Ian
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

So there's nothing I can do.

Can't even save most of the food

Thanks anyway
