Thanks Wend... had a look at that site re the problem! doesn't appear to be the thermostat as there is a "working" noise coming from the freezer section,site says there would be NO noise at all if it was the thermostat!

Hi Shirley, thanks or your suggestion... yes I have looked online, can only find 2 models that I "like", that will fit into the space available in my kitchen, (Hotpoint & Beko) & even those are a touch wider than the current one,so it looks as though I am going to be very limited!

My current model is exactly 53cm wide, the nearest I have found so far is 54.5 cm which is snug!!

Off out just now to have a look round the 2 outlets in town,but not feeling very hopeful!

Well I am now £320 lighter having found a replacement fridgefreezer, £20 of it being the delivery charge!

The 2 outlets in town didn't have anything I liked,but one of them have a 2nd shop in Aberdeen & the lady checked with them to see if they had what I was looking for,they had just one left & still in it's box, & as I knew what it looked like etc (viewed the model online) & my daughter has the same one,I ordered it & handed over my money, it's to be delivered next Thursday!

Just been clearing out the broken one,& managed to get a few things into the outside freezer, a couple of bags of meat are being cared for by our friends at the village shop.
Some things we couldnt save as they have softened up, but it isn't much,a bit of veg & fruit & a tub of ice cream so all in all not too bad.

Not madly in love with the new fridge freezer but there you go, the new one is a Hotpoint, & silver in colour.

Hope your new fridge/freezer arrives on time, fits perfectly and you adapt to the difference in colour etc. We take these things for granted til they pack up, don't we?

Glad you've got the three disasters over and done with Joan, take care.

Hi Liz.

I expect I will get used to the new one soon enough, I will certainly be glad when it arrives, lol.
At the moment I have the fridge items sitting in a box in the back porch,nice & cold in there so hoping things we are using everyday (butter,milk,cheese & the like) will keep ok until Thursday!
I took my fridge thermometer into the porch & within minutes it went down from the 70 mark to 50 so you can tell how warm it was in the non working fridge, glad it's still winter as the porch is a very sunny place in the summer.
