Hi Tommy

It probably just needs a good defrost...

The chiller brings in the cold air from the freezer, and a common issue is that ice builds up in the freezer blocking the intake to the chiller.

Try turning it off for 24hrs (longer the better) and run it up again to see what happens.

If the chiller still doesn't work, or it freezes up again then you will require an engineer I'm afraid :cool:

Thankyou for the advise but i already did a 24hr defrost n it started to work for about 2 weeks but it stopped coooling again

Then you have an obvious defrost problem. It may have a blocked drain...

Have a look at the back of your fridge and locate your compressor. On top of the compressor, you'll find a "drip tray". Into this drip tray will be a pipe; make sure this pipe is clear, and get back to us ;)
