Hello, my name is George..
Can you please supply me with the Product Code.. This should be on the data label inside the fridge compartment and should start with 925 for this appliance.
Kindly be patient whilst awaiting any responses from me as I'm not constantly available.

Hello George
The product code is###-##-#### ***** hope you can help. We have currently defrosted the appliance and taken off the back panel
but cannot find a drain hole to unblock
The appliance model is SCN71800S0
Can you tell me if the Prod Code that you have given has an /00 or a /02 behind it please
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
It has an 02
The drain should be above the compressor at the rear of the appliance; it leads to the top of the freezer inside where the evaporator battery is.
Can you tell me if the fan runs in the freezer now that you have defrosted it?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
The fan is running now and the freezer temperature light isn't flashing anymore does it look like the problem might have been resolved
The problem may be resolved but then it may not..
If it happens again, take note of how long it takes from today for it to happen again.. also take note of if the fan is running or not..
If it does happen again, defrost for ATLEAST 24hrs, with the doors open.
The problem could be cause by a faulty component, or it could be cause by water freezing inside the drain tubes of the appliance.
Please rate the assistance given by me today & feel free to call on me again if the problem returns
