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 2 months ago.
The temperatures are -19 and +3c

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.

Thank you - that would seem a logical reason. I assume that I will need the contact sensor replaced? It is still under warranty

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.
