thats definitely right now - sorry - missed a digit
Expert:  Daniel replied 11 months ago.

Thanks for that ive got it now.

Click here for the exploded diagram of the appliance and you can see the freezer door parts on section 2.

You need to remove the section metal skin of the freezer door to get at the workings behind there.

But now for the bad news as you will see the hose isnt sold on its own. It comes as part of the freezer door itself which is a very expensive part as you will see. They dont seem to sell the hose on its own so im guessing the hose is foamed into the door panel. As other makes and model you can replace just that hose but as you can see from the parts diagram on this model it comes as a complete freezer door.

That's not great.
Tubing and pipework I can join and or extend with materials I have - but getting to the section above the hinge is where i need to access. If it's not simple I feel an insurance claim to cover it maybe !
Expert:  Daniel replied 11 months ago.

Try and remove the top hinge on the freezer door door and then you should be able to lift the door off the bottom hinge and then see if you can try and repair it.

Other then that im afraid it is an insurance job or get a warrenty from the likes of Domestic and General and wait a few weeks then ring up and make a claim. As if you tell them its faulty from the start its more expensive so get a working plan and wait a few weeks then claim. We see it a lot as theres nothing they can say so they just repair it. Cheecky i know but it does work.

Where is my best sources for pattern parts?
Expert:  Daniel replied 11 months ago.

Depending what pattern parts you are after. As they only make common parts. Things like doors and major parts you will be best getting direct from Neff themsleves as it will be cheaper then the online sites. As if you order from an online site they just order them from Neff and add a bit more money on top so if you go direct its cheaper.

As to a site for pattern spares this is the best site click here

But as i said they only make certain common spare parts they dont make doors or anything like that.
