Hello My name is Ian ~ I am not on the site constantly so please be patient whilst waiting for responses to you queries ~~

Is it warm in both the refrigerator side as well as the freezer compartment or just one or the other, secondly can you hear the compressor (motor) running?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Motor running and all inside warm
Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 1 year ago.

OK is the motor hot to the touch?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No but door casing in centre flap hot
Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 1 year ago.
Door casing being hot is normal its an anti condensation heater. If you look at the compressor you will see that there is a large pipe connected, a small pipe connected and a third pipe that is just a stub. If you touch the large pipe about 6 inches up is it cold, equally if you touch the small pipe connected 6 inches up is it hot?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
sorry to be so dim but where is compressor area to
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Where is the condenser or compressor
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Can you tell me where compressor etc situated
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Please give further instructions
Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 1 year ago.
OK you need to get behind the appliance and take off the motor cover once removed you will see a large black thing with wires going into and electric cover, come back to me once you have found it.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Taken back off and checked the copper pipes and all warm
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Taken back off and checked the copper pipes and all warm and the black box very hot
Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 1 year ago.

OK from what you have told me your unit is short of refrigerant or the compressor (motor) is not functioning correctly ~ most likely the former. This is not a job for a diy repair as the engineer is required to pierce the copper pipework and check for both refrigerant and compressor operation using specialised tools. If you need me to find you a good refrigeration engineer let me have your postcode and I will let you have one by return post ~ Ian

Ok. We are surprised because only just out of warranty 3 yr. If you could let us know of an engineer that would be appreciated. Post code PL22 0DX. Many thanks for your help and advice
