- Check the thermostat control. Even if you've not touched it, something may have knocked it and adjusted the setting. The thermostat may also need to be adjusted depending on the temperature of its surroundings and the coldness of the weather.
- Make sure any food stored in the fridge or freezer is not blocking any air vents. This can stop air circulating properly.
- If the fridge is too close to the wall, the condenser coils will not function properly.
- Defrost the fridge and freezer thoroughly and clean the inside surfaces with warm water. Check any air vents to ensure they are not blocked.
- Clean the condenser coils at the back of the fridge using a vacuum cleaner, making sure all dust and any dirt are removed. Clean any stubborn dirt away with warm soapy water, being careful not to scrape the coils. Turn your fridge off and unplug it before doing this.
- Make sure the fridge's fans are not clogged and are able to function properly. Again, you need to turn your fridge off and uplug it before attempting this.

- Check the door is closing properly. Make sure nothing is obstructing it or pushing it slightly open. Ensure the seals around the edge are working well.
Taking these steps will often get your fridge back to work and stop your chiller cabinet getting hot under the collar. If you're still having problems, contact the repair centre.
