Customer Question

Good morning, I recently thoroughly cleaned a beko fridge freezer - it has worked well for 4 years. I didn’t turn it off but had the door open on and off for a couple of hours. Since then it won’t cool down/ freeze but still lights up. ive pulled it forwards to allow more air behind it but no joy
JA: Do you know the model of your Beko fridge?
Customer: im sorry but it’s at my mother in laws flat
JA: How long has this been going on with your Beko refrigerator? What have you tried so far?
Customer: only since I cleaned it. My mum in law has died so the property is empty and therefore I have turned the appliance off and left the doors slightly open. It worked well until I cleaned it
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: no

Guys I'm darran I'm a refrigeration engineer

Sorry to hear about your loss guys

Listen with the doors open for an hr or so for cleaning the appliance has tried to cool the ambiant air ie the warm air outside the fridge , this can make the appliance run harder and blow the thermostat

Your most likely needing a new thermostat and possibly the pcb
