I then tried replacing the relevant fuse in the one main switch leading to a double socket feeding a separate plug for each fridge and the replaced the fuse in that plug i.e. replaced all that I could get access to ................. and also checked the bulb inside the fridge worked okay.
JA: Anything else you want the Electronics Expert to know before I connect you?

Good morning Nicholas,

Welcome to JustAnswer.com, sorry just saw your question sitting here.

My name is ***** ***** I will assist you today!

I am sorry to hear you are having trouble with your appliance.

I understand how frustrating that must be.

Your Philips ARB is pretty old, I think around 30 years or so, can you provide its dimensions please so I can check what similar model can be fitted in same place.

I am afraid, I am not available for phone call and we can continue via chat.

If you want phone support, please let me know and another expert may pick it up.

Thank you however what is an integrated freezer. Are you perhaps able to direct me to any documentation please? Is the integrated freezer like the Philips ARB 564/PH model i.e.basically a white fridge with a small freezer unit in it. If not is there something like the Whirlpool ARG 420/3 i.e basically also just a white fridge with no small freezer unit in it that will fit in the space? Can you also please explain the relevance and significance of a sliding hinge on the Indesit? I am also not sure about the Bush black chest freezer if it is only a chest freezer as we are looking for a fridge in that we already have a stand alone freezer. Do you also please have the full contact details where suitable models are available from and at what sort of price(s)? Finally, as in my original enquiry are you also able please to provide the full contact details of someone, hopefully reasonably located to central west london, able to reliably and relatively quickly remove and take away the old fridge and fit the new one? Thanking you in anticipation.

You may contact Argos or Currys as all these models plus few more similar models are available with them.

A sliding hinge is attached to the door of kitchen. You may see parts slide in and out.

Bush black freezer was just an option sent to compare. You may compare the prices online at various websites.

The range between £200 to £900 based on the brand and model that you will choose.
