Thanks for getting back to me Hector,

HV8B593G is a Hotpoint washing machine Hector...

FSFL1810 is the Fridge Freezer

Check the warranty as sometimes these were sold with a 2yr warranty. If that is the case in this instant you'll need to be smart with getting in touch with them to check the appliance out.

The buzzer together with the two yellow flashing lights indicates that the temperature in the freezer is too high and that you should check the quality of the food products and dispose if necessary.

If the lights are still flashing, it would be best to check and store food that is still frozen.. then defrost the fridge freezer by turning it off for 24hrs leaving the door open. After restarting the fridge freezer you should leave around 8hrs before refilling it with food.
