Sorry it is an electrolux.

Thought it may have been.

Now if the freezer is working but not the fridge section then its a system fault. Its more then likely a poor pumping compressor as it first pumps the gas around the freezer and then up to the fridge.

Now for this it isnt a diy repair as a fridge engineer will need to do the repair as they will need to attach there gauges on the pipe work at the back and regass it from there.

But this isnt a cheap fix im afraid. You are looking at about the £200 mark and given the age of the appliance its just not worth it as its a 1999 model so about 17 years old.

So as you brought it second hand im afraid its just not worth messing with on this, Sorry its not good news but if you need anymore info just get back to me.
