Can you post the model number of the appliance please?
It will be on a label inside the fridge.
Sorry, the model number begins with M
Thanks for that.
The red light indicates the temperature in the freezer is too warm.
When you checked it, did you use a thermometer?
NO IV JUST FILLED IT DO YOU THINK THERE IS TOO MUCH IN IT
No, I think the temperature may have increased to the point it brings the light on.
According to the user manual, you should have a fast freeze switch.
(The snowflake symbol).
Press this and see if the temperature goes down again and the light goes off.
It will take a while though.
Let me know what happens.
It should cool down sufficiently within the hour.
Hopefully, by then the red light will be out again.
Do check that the freezer and fridge doors are closing properly too.
OK, recheck the temperature inside the freezer and the fridge.
Check the doors (as before).
If the temperatures are both ok and the doors are ok, it would suggest a problem with the main control board and/or the temperature sensors.
If the temperature inside both compartments are correct and if the doors are closing properly and aren't at an angle, it only leaves the sensors and the main control board as the source of the problem.
You would need to obtain and replace them (if still available, Servis went bust in 2008)
Check the doors.
Lift the fridge door a little, does the light go off?
It's not a defrost button, it's a fast freeze button.
If the temperatures inside the freezer and fridge are correct, turn it off as it will just make it colder inside the appliance.
If the temperature rises (gets warmer inside) check inside the freezer for a build up of ice on the rear wall.
Let me know what you find.
Thanks for letting me know how it went.
Took longer than I expected though.
However, as long as it's off the temperature is now back where it should be so it's likely it was adding the food to it that caused the light to flash.
Good luck with the appliance.
Hope this helped
