Replaced the thermostat but still freezing fridge contents. Cause & remedy plz?

Hi, The freezer compartment was frozen up then the fridge stopped working. After defrosting the freezer it appears that both compartments were not working but the build up of frost hid the freezer issue. The starting device had brown staining to the housing. I have replaced this but there is no noise from the compressor or anything else. One thing of note though, the rear of the fridge gets warm around the drain hole, this is clear of debris. Can you help please.

i have checked:
air flap actuating OK, fan operating Ok, defrosting element ok
do you have NTC for this model?

Hi, my John Lewis JLFFW2005 Fridge Freezer is cold on the freezer compartment but warm on the fridge compartment. If I turn it off overnight, the evaporation tray gets full, I empty it and plug the fridge freezer back on. It works for 6 to 7 days then same thing again.
Do I need new appliance or can I fix this or get it fixed?

Good evening Paul hope you are keeping well and your family.
I am looking to see if you have fitting instructions on how to change led on a beko fridge.. It looks like a small flat screwdriver to press it out and new one looks like a push fitting, however this one seems to be very tight. I don’t want to damage it. Any removal instructions would be appreciated.

Food kept freezing turned the temperature up it’s still freezing it’s now on 7 degrees and still freezing

The freezer section of my fridge freezer started extensively icing up a few months ago around the evaporator and fan. I have checked door seals, thermostat (2 in one) and defrost heater element all seem fine. Over the last week or two the freezer isn’t icing as badly but the top of the fridge is now icing up. Can you please advise what i should check next? Thanks

have got the freezer part on high setting and it is keeping the temperature about -15 degs

Hi, I’m not sure if my thermostat is faulty but the fridge part of my fridge freezer won’t cool below 10⁰C. I currently have a probe in both compartments to see if it’s a general fault or isolated but the motor doesn’t seem to be coming on regardless of where the thermostat knob is. Is this more likely to be thermostat issue or motor? Thanks. P.s. saw your youtube channel.

Hello there (not sure if your name is Paul)
First of all I would like to thank you for taking your time to share these tutorials and all the help you are providing. You are surely helping a lot of people and I find it a very kind and caring gesture to taking all this time.
My problem is on a small fridge with a freezing top compartment. The problem seems to be a very common one on fridges apparently…the dreaded clicking every few seconds with compressor not running.
I have tested the compressor with a multimeter and the values seem to be all good, condluding in a way that the compressor is still fine. I checked the starter relay and although it seemed to be giving good results on my multimeter parts of the housing broke off and I noticed some age related corrosion on the contacts inside. So I purchased what seems to be the same rating relay…however the problem remains the same.
I have checked the overload sensor to see what is happening during this process and noticed that on the inside it turns red-hot just before it clicks.
The last thing I checked was for any humming in the compressor, and it does seem to have a very low hum, which means that it is trying to start.
I am a bit lost now. As illogical as it might seem I am thinking I might have the wrong rated relay (I tried another with a bigger rating but didn’t solve the problem). If the relay is good than, as illogical as it may seem the compressor must have something wrong.
So….I am now reverting to your kind help. Is there anything I am missing or that I can check before I see if it’s worth installing a new compressor and the labour it might cot to refill with gas, or purchase a new fridge, please?
The model details are: Zanussi, model: DR 50/2 /A. Type B 23230 X. Capacity 140l. Gas R 12 0.08Kg. 90W/0.7A. Class N.
Many many thanks in advance!
