If the rear of the fridge is freezing over this is a sign of either the thermostat has failed as its getting too cold or the fridge door seal has failed resulting in increase condensation which is forming on the back of the fridge and freezing.

If the door seal looks in good shape, I would be inclined to defrost the fridge freezer and see if it reoccurs, if it does I would then look to swap out the thermostat\temp sensor in the fridge, spares can be found here.

Good morning David,

Part of the issue is that eSpares have your model down as Premier not Prima (typo on their part), see here

Second part of the issue is the PCB seems to be obsolete, such as the ones here, as such if you think its the PCB its looking uneconomical to repair.

Regards

James
