Hello Gary, my name is George,

Is the compressor running constantly?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
George yes it is every time we try to set the temperature it reverts back to the orginal

Can you go to the back of the appliance and check the temperature of the compressor please..

Cold / Warm / Hot ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Sorry wouldn't be back to the fridge until later where is the compressor situated in the fridge what am I looking for and is there a quick fix

The compressor is at the rear of the fridge at the bottom.. it is a large black domed metal component..

Check to see if it is hot, warm, or cold, and let me know.

We can take it from there

The compressor is very warm

Hi Gary, I am available now...

How warm... very warm, hot, very hot.. Can you keep your hand on it?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Very hot you couldn't keep your hand on it

Where in Europe are you Gary?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

That is why I didn't accept the call

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No problem how do we fix it

If the compressor is so hot you can not keep your hand on it then the appliance needs to be turned off and allowed to cool.. you will then need to call a refrigeration engineer to re-gas the appliance as the appliance is likely to be short of/ lacking refrigerant.

You need to weigh-up your options though.. If the compressor is that hot, there is a likelihood that it may now be damaged and regassing it will no then necessarily work.
