Switching off and on, altering temperature levels but does not seem to work

Hi, thank you for choosing Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will help with your query today.

What temp is the fridge and freezer running at currently.

Customer: replied 13 days ago.
The temperatures are -19 and +3c
Expert:  JamesI replied 13 days ago.

Ok this suggests the door sensor may be fault if its alarming as it thinks the door is left open.

The fact the temp is being regulated your not seeing a build up of frost would all point to a faulty contact sensor, especially if the fault reoccurs and no particular pattern.

Customer: replied 13 days ago.
Thank you - that would seem a logical reason. I assume that I will need the contact sensor replaced? It is still under warranty
Expert:  JamesI replied 13 days ago.

Yes this is a hardware fault, and most likely a faulty contact reed switch, so would be something the warranty team on 0333(###) ###-####/a> can address for you with an engineer visit.

Thank you - I will take this forward now
