Looking procedures lower-end Hotpoint/Indesit fridge freezer

Customer Question

Looking for debugging procedures for a lower-end Hotpoint/Indesit fridge freezer
mode RFAA 52P.
On returning from a holiday the fridge compartment is completely warm though the freezer was still reasonably cold. Plugging back in after a defrost, the freezer seems to work (though can't be certain it's 100%) but the fridge remains room temp

Hmm, freezer is working but not to full strength.So what would cause freezer to be operating at partial efficiency and fridge to be warm - simple thermostat issue, or something else...?

Hi

If you feel the compressor at the back at the bottom is it hot to touch?

Also go inside the fridge and feel all over the back wall in there and press against it and does it feel spongy as you press it?

Regards
