Hi

Ok empty the freezer and look at the back wall inside the freezer and at the bottom do you see any ice or frost on the back wall there?

Also when you say you can hear a motor is it the compressor or the fan inside the freezer?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

it is probably the fan that I hear, it stops when I open the door, and starts when I close it,,no ice or frost, the frezzer is cold but not enought to freeze anything,, I need to go out in 15 mins.

Hi

Ok what you need to do when you have time is either full empty the freezer and then from there remove the plastic panel at the back inside the freezer.

Behind there is the evaporator. If this is covered in ice you need to use a hairdryer and fully melt the ice in there. As too much ice can form in there and the this stops the airflow in the freezer abd causes the fault you have now.

Once clear refit the panel and retry the freezer and fingers crossed this will cure the fault you have here.

Try that and see what happens and let me know.

Hi Daniel, I have removed back panel, and there was quite a lot of ice which I removed with a hair dryer as you suggested. replaced panel and switched on, red light is still on after about 2 hours the condenser at the back ( bottom of Freezer) is warm but not burny hot.

Hi

If you have melted all the ice in there then it can take several hours to get back to working temperture as its a big appliance.

So see how it goes and it should turn the red light off and be back to normal.

Let me know how it goes.
