Ok thanks

It is normal for the fridge-freezer to get hot when the refrigerant is removing warm air from inside it.

If the doors are left open for too long in warm weather then it will beep to alert you.

If it does not reset, then you can power it off for 30 seconds and turn it back on again to reset it.

Is all ok again now?

It seems ok for about 2 hours then starts bleeping been doing it since about 3pm today, i understand it is a hot day! but just did it again now and it late in the evening!

Ok, if it is doing it when the doors have not been open for too long then the thermostat may be faulty and will need to be replaced.

Is it expensive to replace a thermostat on an old fridge

It would cost approx. £100-150.
