Have you checked fast freeze \ supper cool has not been turned on in error?

Customer: replied 9 days ago.
No it hasn’t although I have been through all the settings. It has always been set at 4 until 2 weeks ago. It is now set at 2 but is much colder than it used to be
Customer: replied 9 days ago.
I am not sure what you can tell me. I have the manual which doesn’t help. Should I get someone to come out
Expert:  James replied 9 days ago.

Where the temp is set to 4 and its over cooling and super cool then it would suggest the control board which reads input from the temp sensor is at fault

Where the appliance is out of warranty then you can arrange a repair here
