So what does that mean? Are these situated somewhere out of sight, and could I replace them myself? i read that it may be the seal on the fridge door (i just noticed there is a bit of a rip in the seal)
Expert:  NeilWill replied 5 years ago.
Is the rip in a spot that alows air to enter the fridge?
Freezer on top? Model number?

Now that I am aware of that riped door seal, it may just be the problem!

In fridge freezers the fridge door is ripped or opened & closed much more often than the freezer resulting in more air changes. The magnetic door seal is there to form a vapor seal, to prevent air from entering the fridge.The door seal should be as airtight as possible. Get a clean cloth & rinse it out in warm water put some washing up liquid,undiluted, on the cloth & use it to clean both the door seal & the part of the cabinet that that it seals against. Hopefully this should solve your problem. You can test the efficiency of the seal by putting a cigarette paper eg "Rizzla" between the door seal & the cabinet. The paper should be difficult to remove with the door closed. You need to check the whole door in this way.
