Hotpoint RLAV21P larder fridge doesn't get down below 10 -12C.

This answer was rated:

Hotpoint RLAV21P larder fridge doesn't get down below 10 -12C. Dial on top front, set to coldest but no difference. Machine 'starts' and compressor works and radiator rails warm up as well as the compressor, not too hot just warm to touch but it stops after an hour or so. When it is running a small amount of ice/condensation gather at the top 20 - 25% of the back, but nothing further down and it doesn't feel like it is getting cold.
Hello, my name is George..

The appliance requires recharging with refrigerant.. You will need a refrigeration engineer to attend for this.

I can suggest an engineer if you let me know your postcode.

Please rate ther assistance given by me & kindly be patient whilst awaiting any responses from me as I'm not constantly available.
