Hi my name is ***** ***** you cant open the back its a sealed unit - what is your problem with the fridge/freezer?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The freezer is working and the fridge is not
Expert:  bonzaco replied 1 year ago.

OK if you go around the back and put your hand on the motor (compressor) is it hot or just warm. Secondly does the appliance switch itself off from time to time?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hi I'm having problems even getting power to the fridge now. I took the starter or whatever it is out of the compressor to inspect the wiring and when I put it back there was no power going through to the compressor. I have power at the mains side but it's not going through the starter
