    Hi,

    Has anyone else come across this problem?

    For some reason when the fridge is on 240v it starts to cool and then stops if later you feel inside the icebox it is slighlty cool but the rest of the fridge is not.


    Thanks

    Karen

    sounds like the thermostat or 230v heating elemant is failing.

    if it does starts to cool, then stops, i'd suspect the thermostat.

    Sounds like the thermostat/ heater element you can buy off ebay ,I changed mine about 3 months ago fairly easy to do if you are handy. You will have to take the fridge out though:thumb::thumb::thumb:
