Question about Fisher and Paykel Refrigerators
Fridge temperature creeps up to 20degC. Doesn't automatically recool. Have to knock the sides of temperature control box to restart cooling. After restarting, it doesn't cut out at all until I twist the control knob to a higher or lower setting.
Take the cover off the control box and see if there is a thermostat with a capillary tube attached. If the tube is leaking or crushed, it wont work right.

Your fridge is working against outside air tempurature and any solar heating effect. To maximise the operation of your fridge allways try to park the unit so the fridge side will be in the shade. Do you have a fan to create the air circulation in the back of the fridge? There are kits available for this. I use a recovered converter fan and have it set up in the bottom of the fridge cavity below the coils and blowing straight up. This helps a lot. The kits normally come with a 80 degree F temp switch, I have a leftover toggel from some where for mine. I don't think your fridge is the problem. I don't think a new one will fix it. Your best bet is to do the kind of thing I have above and it should work better. Hopefully good enough. Good Luck
