Hello My name is Ian ~ I am not on the site constantly so please be patient whilst waiting for responses to you queries - Penny there are only two things that cause this the first that you have a faulty thermostat and the second is that you have a shortage of refrigerant and the system never gets cold enough to carry out a defrost. Give me your phone number preceded by # ***** #1234 etc and I will call you and explain it as it takes some thought to understand it all.
