Hi my name is ***** ***** could you give me the ENr from the rating label inside the fridge please.
Many thanks be right back
If you put it onto super freeze does the motor kick in and continue to run?
OK if you switch it to super freeze the defrost is bypassed. So run it up on superfreeze and tell me if it is getting down to temperature.
No worries I will be here until about 10pm and then again from about 8am tomorrow - come back to me when you are ready
Nope - Based in the UK - Lincolnshire.
OK I'll be around - thanks for the confidence.
OK its had enough time to do something in the cooling line, since everything seems to be working mechanically you either have a shortage of refrigerant (very common) or the compressor is failing and not pumping the gas around. If you dont have specialist refrigeration tools this is a job for a fridge engineer and not a diy proposition. From a price point of view a recharge of refrigerant would cost between 65-95 pounds depending upon the area of the country and if its the compressor I would scrap the appliance as that likely will be £180-200 repair.
The sound would have changed as the refrigerant will not be there to pump. Re fridge freezers - where do you have it located?
Understood, if you look at the specifications most fridge freezers will not work in this environment. To briefly explain, if you have a fridge freezer that is controlled by a thermostat in the fridge area as long as the temperature is higher in the room that the set temperature (eg, fridge set to +5C room ambient temp at +10C) everything will work fine. If however the room temperature goes to say +2C then all thermostat control is lost. Subsequently the freezer temperature comes up to the ambient temperature (everything defrosts) - once the ambient temperature goes above +5C system restarts. In your situation you need to find a fridge freezer that has either two temperature controls or two controlled compressors. As you have seperate control for each zone (fridge/freezer) it will work fine.
A pleasure, come back to me if you need further help - thanks for rating and have a good day.
