Customer Question
My 18yr old 40lt...

My 18yr old 40lt fridge has for months been cooling to 4c but now on that setting cools to 1c. I have the fridge turned to nearly off and it is cooling to 2.4c. Any thoughts on what may be the cause. Thanks Tom

Contractor's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

The variance started about three days ago. The fridge has been in continual use past ten months

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Happy to have it repaired by a service agent somewhere but just trying to get an idea on what the problem may be

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Fridge only ever used as a fridge, not freezer. Tested freezer ability by dialing up the setting and that worked fine. Just that it seems to want to run continually and will not stay at 4c as I explained. Currently setting is just above Cool and running at 2.4c

I wish to cancel the question as I do not believe we will resolve the problem online. I am prepared to forfeit the $5 initial charge but I am not prepared to accept any further billing. Thank you
AU Appliance Technician: Daniel, Home Appliance Technician replied 7 months ago

Ok im afraid i dont have any info at all on these so i will have to opt out of this.

If anyone else can help they will jump in
