yes, it's runnning and very hot
Fridge now unplugged.
There is no thin coiled tube, it's just a short length of uncoiled copper tubing on left of attached picture....presume that's what should be heated. Will try leaving unplugged and heating as suggested
I've now noticed the thin coiled tube, tightly wrapped around input tube to compressor.
it was obscured by a covering of chewing-gum like material.
I've removed some of this material in order to get some heat into the coil with a hair-dryer.
Switched back on now....fingers-crossed...should the coil go cold ?
Compressor not clicking off at all, permanently on and very hot.
It's only when I switch off/on it takes a while (3-5 mins) for compressor to start, then it stays on.
Bulged copper bit and coil cools but inside fridge still doesn't.
Lots of high pitched chirping and gurgling coming from much higher at back of fridge.
seems to come from behind the insulation.
Any suggestions ?
Thanks for the advice...we're looking to replace now.
Finding one of same dimensions to fit in existing space is the difficult bit.
Not that it bothers me but there'll also be a mismatch with the matching Servis freezer we have.
Will need to replace both "because it won't look right" I'm told.
Need to go shopping then
