Fridge freezer problem

I have experienced a major problem with my fridge freezer which is now 3 years old. Everything seemed to be working as it should apart from not freezing.

This is a side by side model and the freezer section is not freezing. It is just cool but not cold.

The fridge side is not as cold as it should be and is just slightly cool like the freezer.

Where would we begin to try to pin point the cause?

Thankyou for any assistance you can offer.

Frezer does not seem to be working in the cold

s it should the ambient temperatures that you said are way to cold to expect the freezer to operate properly. move it indoors and or contact the manufacture and see if the have a kit to put on the unit to work properly.

Indesit fridge freezer (2 years old) not getting cold

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

Indesit fridge freezer not getting cold (2 years old)

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.
