Hello it appears there was a technical issue and you haven't got my messages at lunch time.

E6 often relates to a temp issue, what temp are your fridge and freezer running at?

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
16 freezer and 4 fridge

When the engineer changes the PCB did they check the temp probe in the freezer and remove the rear interior panel of the freezer?

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
Checked the temps yes but didn't remove anything inside the freezer.

I think you might have an issue with the NTC (temp sensor) or the defrost element, both sit behind the rear wall of the freezer.

These are things they should have checked with a multi meter before changing the board.

He did have a multi meter but only checked round the back of the fridge/freezer not inside?

will this be the cause of the ice maker not filling with water and make ice?

Yes, the appliance is likley not cooling sufficiently or at least causing the cold air to circulate properly. As ice is only formed once the appliance deems it cold enough for cubes to form.

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
can the NTC or defrost element be fixed or do I just get them replaced?

These are parts you would replace if at fault, its unlikely to be both (one or other).

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
Ok but once this E6 message has been sorted will this freezer start making ice? Its the only reason we bought the kenwood model its now 3 years old and costing money.

Kenwood are a budget range like Beko, but shouldnt fail this early on.

Once the E6 is resolved the appliance should start making ice.
