Is there any heavy frost on the rear wall inside the freezer section?

Also how old is your fridge approximately?

Thank you

No frost before the freezer defrosted - it's about 4 years old

Thank you for that info.

I need to know if the compressor is running . To find that out, I will need you to remove the cover behind the fridge/freezer.

In there you should see a large black ball, it should feel warm to fairly hot if it is running.

Please let me know on that so we can continue.

Thank you

Apologies - had to wait for hubby to get in to move the thing ! He says it feels warm
It had been making noises as if it was trying to make ice but that stopped earlier - it just isn't getting cooler at all

Thank you for that.

This problem is likley the main control board or the thermistor. More than likely this is going to need a a new start relay on the compressor as well as the main control board on the back of your fridge.

Both parts are super easy to replace and I will help you once you have them. The board is a little pricey though so you may choose not to replace that but to replace the fridge?

Please let me know on that?

The best place to get these two parts is: http://www.espares.co.uk/browse/ma2322/rangemaster

Its best to call to order these parts to get up to date pricing and availability. Also if you call to order he parts they usually ship them to you the same day or next day;-)
