So the temp can be set but after a few hours its not dropping the temp inside at all?

Customer: replied 14 days ago.
the fridge comes on but then after a few minutes it turns off. When I turn the stat up or down it comes on again but only for a few seconds. Today we have turned the fridge on showing green light but not working. Now just looked and it is flashing red light once but still no making a noise. The leisure battery is fully charged

Ok the fact the battery is providing 12v but its powering off without any error shown then it does suggests the fault is with the circuit board, as if it were a sensor, heater etc then you would see a error shown on the display

You can take the unit to your local service centre here for repair.
