Has the freezer fully defrosted and gone warm?

If the compressor is very hot and theres no cooling at all inside the freezer then this is a compressor fault.

Its either short of gas or a poor pumping compressor. For either of these you need to get a fridge engineer in and they will but there gauges on the back to see what pressure the compressor is pumping at.

As if its short of gas then they will need to find the leak and fix it and regas it and that should sort it.

But if its a faulty compressor they will need to replace it and will sort it.

Now these are both expensive repairs. If its just a regas then this is about £140.
But if its a compressore then its about £250 so an expensive repair but these are an expensive appliance.

Sorry its not good news but if you need anymore info just get back to me.
