Hi

 

You have a problem with the evaporator inside the fridge.

 

Im afraid theres not much you can do as its foamed in from the back so you cannot get access to it.

 

As what happens on these is the evaporator comes away from the back wall inside the fridge so it doesnt cool down there and you get this problem. Ive seen it qite a few times on these older fridges. And like i said theres nothing you can do is its all foamed in from the back.

 

Im afraid its a new fridge freezer. Sorry its not good news.

 

If you need anymore info just get back to me.
