Hi

Can you hear the compressor at the back running.

If you feel it is it hot to touch?
And how long was the appliance off for?

Hi, the compressor is warm to the touch, I'm not sure how long the power was off

Can you feel it running?
If you touch it if its running you will feel a slight vibrating noise do you hear this?
And can you hear the fan inside the freezer running?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

I can feel it running for about 5 seconds, then it stops and there is a humming sound for about 4 seconds, then it runs again

Hi

Ok when this happens its usually down to the compressor overload cutting out thats why its stopping like this and starting.

What you can try if youn havent already is remove the plug from the socket and leave it out 30 mins.
Then plug it back in and see what happens from there. It can take several mins before the compressor kicks but once it does then see how it goes from there. Fingers crossed this will sort it from there.

But if it doesnt and the compressor is still cuttin in and out then its more then likely the compressor itself faulty.

So try that first and see what happens and let me know.

Hi, I've tried it out, but it's still cutting in and out, and the compressor is guite warm, I can only keep my hand on it for about4 seconds, is it time for a new appliance?

Expert:  Daniel T. replied 1 year ago.
Hi

Im afraid its looking like the compressor is the issue here and a new one will be the better option here im afraid.

Hi, a ne compressor or new fridge-freezer? It's over 8 years old.

Expert:  Daniel T. replied 1 year ago.
Sorry i ment a new appliance as i dont personally think its worth spending that much money on an 8 year old appliance as a new compressor is about the £300 mark roughly fitted.

Thanks for your help, I'll have to get a new one,


Cheers
