Hope you are doing well today. How often does the ticking occur? Is it a quick click click click or does it only do this every couple of minutes?

Are the freezer and fridge at room temp currently?

Thanks Tamar
Don’t worry being a new thing I wasn’t sure if I’d done the right thing.
It’s stopped clicking now and lights no longer flashing so nothing happening and not running

No problem. So now nothing at all is working?
Customer: replied 13 days ago.

can you tell if the compressor is running?

I have checked the fuse and it was blown.
Replaced and now freezer seems to be working normally
No idea why it would do that. Or how long it will be normal. Only thing to say is the plug is in an adapter with another freezer and and not straight into socket.
