UK Appliance Repair Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! You will need to remove the rear wall from inside the freezer to determine if the issue lies with a frost build up or if the evaporator is only partially frosted, like from a low refrigerant level. Can you access the coil behind the rear wall inside the freezer and post a picture, please?
Sorry, you are 7 hours ahead of me. You have a low refrigerant level, you will need to have that professionally repaired as it requires specialized tools and equipment.
Yes, the refrigerator will run fine, it does not need to get to subzero temperatures. There is a leak in the sealed system, you will need to have the leak repaired and the refrigerant recharged.
I would estimate 225-250 GBP + parts.
Great! Thank you!
Thank you. Sorry if you received automated messages, I have no control over those. Any message from me will show only in this thread.
It could be a restriction, but more likely a leak, given the symptoms. In any case, it is a sealed system repair that will not be inexpensive.
