Customer Question

I have an integrated larder fridge, Siemens. There is a rattling sound from the back of the fridge ..... it cuts out every now and then, but then comes back
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Siemens is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: I would say it was about 4 or 5 years old (its in a house I just purchased)
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: it kind of sounds like a fan banging into something
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: Not that I am aware of, and no - not going to do the work myself

The evaporator is probably iced up and the fan is hitting the ice. Defrost for 24hrs with the door open.
