Appliance Repair Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Welcome to JustAnswer and thank you for your question. My name is***** am an expert from Germany and have been working as an equipment technician for 19 years. I work with a language translation program and I would be very grateful for your understanding. I'm sorry I can't make a call, but another expert can do it for you if you want. I will try to help you as best I can via chat. I am sorry that you faced this problem!
The way you explain the error, there is a very high probability that the thermostat or the control electronics are malfunctioning or not working properly. Do you also have an FD number on the nameplate where you saw the model number? So I can find out how old the device is. In addition, check that the device has enough distance from the wall. If it is too close to the wall then such an error can also occur if it overheats and switches off automatically.
Please feel free to continue this topic if you have any further questions. I would be very happy to help you! With best regards, Erdal
Your device is exactly 17 years old. I just looked it up. It is also possible that the fan is not working or that the compressor keeps breaking down. I have already looked up which spare parts you need. Some spare parts are not offered in full.The repair could cost between 100-450 Pounds depending on the defective component. Unfortunately, I cannot give you a clear suggestion as to what exactly could be defective. It could be the compressor, it could also be the control board.

Of course, I don't know why the landlord said that to you. I can only give him the dates of the device. It turned exactly 17 years old in June. Depending on the defective component, it can be more or less expensive. The most expensive part is the compressor. Plus labour costs and travel expenses, it can be really expensive. Of course, it is not advisable to invest so much for the old unit.
The super button is only used when you switch the appliance on again to speed up the cooling process. But after that the temperature should remain constant and maybe fluctuate plus or -1°. It must not drop completely so that it defrosts everything.
The higher you make the setting, the colder it gets. For example, position two is warmer than position eight. So number eight is the coldest.
I think they're talking about the thermostat. If you are talking about the cold degree setting of course that is correct. 2° is colder and 8° is warmer of course.
I don't know what else you need to know. If you have any questions, you can still ask me. I have written to you what possibilities we have or why such an error is caused. I have written you what the repair would cost. Unfortunately, it is not a fault that you can easily fix. It must be professionally checked and repaired if necessary.
