I have a problem with my Indesit R24 S Fridge Freezer.
The freezer is working fine, but the fridge just won't get cold. One of the shelves on the door came slightly out of it's fitting the other day and I think this stopped the door from closing properly - I only noticed in the morning when the floor was wet around the fridge. Since then the fridge just won't get cold any more, but I can hear the fridge running. I think perhaps the thermostat is broken??Many thanks!Georgina

It should shut off when it reaches the correct temperature. If you have the temp set to low it could cause it to continue to run or if there is an issue with the fridge that could also cause this issue. Keep in mind after a defrost it will take some time for everything to get back to the correct temp so it may run constant for a long time.
It seems lots of people have the same problem with this appliance....including myself......I took the drawers out of the freezer.....removed the iced up plastic cover which houses the fan assembly.....some water had settled in the bottom and froze, therefore stopping it from turning.....just spin it and it with start up again.....hope it helps ;)
The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp. The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.
If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.
Check freezer... for Frost build up and if Fan is blowing,
Check condenser... To make sure clean, and the fan is blowing (by compressor),
Check recirclating Vents in refrigerator... to make sure theres no blockage,
CONTROLS ...should be in the middle setting,
YOU CAN TRY turning FREEZER CONTROL
To A WARMER FREEZER SETTING Allowing.. MORE AIR.. to refrigertor side
if compressor is running, then you are correct in saying no point in replacing stat.
by sounds of it you have a faulty compressor fault or a syatem fault - impossible to dignose by remotely. this is not a diy job i'm afraid
I would first check to see if the evaporator in the freezer is all iced up. If it is thats whay you do not have any cooloing. And If that is the case you have a defrost problem and it is not short on gas. If you see only a few coils on the evaporator frosted up then you do have a leak in the system and my be covered under the manufactures warrenty.
