    My fridge (Electrolux RM4230) is working fine, but I've never been impressed with how cold it gets, and I'm wondering if it needs regassing, and/or a service. Anyone any experience with this? Also can anyone recommend someone in NE England to do the work? I've asked Leisure Tech North East for a price, at the time I couldn't tell himn exactly which model fridge I had so he couldn't be exact but said between £45.00 and £80.00 plus VAT depending on whether it had to be removed or could be serviced in situ, which sounds pretty reasonable to me.

    Is it performing poorly in all modes or just one ?

    Never thought of that Jaws - and I'm an air conditioning engimineer! Not sure if it makes any difference though, if it needs regassing it would reflect in all modes. We're off for a couple of days tomorrow so I'll take a fridge thermometer with me and check it out.

    If it is just the gas it can easily be self serviced :)

    If it is electric as well..... getting one regassed is not the pain it used to be, especially for someone in your game !
