    The fridge seems to be OK but the freezer is struggling to stay cold, the compressor seems to kick on and goes off again quite quickly (you can hear it) seems to be once every 1 minute or so for about 15 seconds.

    Has a look for the usual dust on coils loose connections blocked vents etc all seems OK.

    So is it buggered, maybe needs gas top up??

    Any one got anything I can try before calling a fridge engineer out?

    Sounds like thermistors gone.

    I had similar. Gambled twenty quid on replacing them myself on a Hotpoint. Didn't work.

    We ended up with a new fridge (well, it was about ten years old!).
