Hi sorry to hear that.
How old is your fridge?
When you say it turns off does it ever come back on by itself?And does the light go out as well or not?

Hi, did not cool at allthe freezer temp now ok -20,fridge temp continually reads 14.

Thank you for that Margaret.
This is a sign that the main control on the back of the fridge has failed.
Its easy to replace but a bit pricey depending on your region.
I will help make the swap out if you get stuck.
The best place to get that part is Espares.
I have listed all their contact information for your convenience;-)
No additional cost to you to rate and then I will be able to stick with you until this is fixed and working as it should.
Thank you Margaret, and have a great day!
