The model number is ***** inside the fridge on the left hand side wall behind the salad box.

Or if its an older fridge then it may be inside the freezer at the bottom behind the bottom basket.

Can you post this please.

Thanks for that if the freezer is working but the fridge isn't that the fault will be inside the freezer as this is where all the cooling is done as the fan in the air blows the cold air into the fridge.The best thing to do here is empty the appliance turn it off and leave the freezer door open for 24 hours. This will allow all the ice in the freezer to melt and clear the air vents.Are if you are handy with a screwdriver you need to empty the freezer remove the bath panel and there you will see the evaporator. You need to use a hairdryer and melt all the ice in there. Also check the gutter under the evaporator and make sure this isn't blocked up with ice as well.Once it's all defrosted turn it back on and hopefully this will sort the fault out from there and get the fridge working again.Try that and let me know how it goes.

Sorry that's a typo. It's ment to say back panel. This is the plastic cover inside the freezer at the back.
