I will have to remove the fridge first to check the ventilation and will give you a rating when done. Many thanks
Removed the fridge from housing so the working parts are in open air and the same thing happened after about 10 minutes. reset again by removing the fuse and same thing again. the temp of the condenser coil was rising but after trip it was cold again!
Any more suggestions ?
The whole unit must have only done about 50 hours from new.
The model is a CR50
Yes I mean that the compressor and possibly the fan continues to run when the control knob is turned of, the light also remains on.
The only way I can stop it is to take out the fuse.
The last time I tried to reset it started normally but then cut out after about 10 minutes. The temperature of the compressor and condensing coil was warm when operating but once the red light came on it was cool.
Almost like it wasn't pumping any coolant round the system. Perhaps that it is so I will need to contact someone who can top it up (unless it is a sealed system) .
There is a small gap both underneath and on top of the appliance of about 15mm each but a large gap at the back. The same happened when the fridge was in the open so I don't think it is ventilation.
I suspect it may still have a guarantee on it as it is under 2 years old and I am currently trying to get the necessary info to pass to a service engineer.
Please answer this time but after your input I think I will have to contact a Service engineer, if I can get hold of one!!
