Did you plug it back in, turn it on and set the thermostat. Yes it can be repaired but at a price. Check with your local repair people and see what they say.

SOURCE: Freezer not freezing solid. Pulled off back

Your not going into defrost, the fridge cycles into defrost every 8-10hrs for approx 20mins....problem could be multile items, the defrost time, defrost thermostat, or the defrost heater, will need a meter to ohm heater and thermostat...thermostat will be a closed circuit when it gets below 22degrees. ohm the heater out...if both check ok, will be a timer issue. Can do a simpler the fridge section near controls there is a smal hole with a gear on the inside....that is your defrost timer. take a falt tip screwdriver and turn that gear until it clicks, this will put the fridge into defrost...if everything on the heater side is ok you will hear a sizzle from the ice melting

SOURCE: swan fridge freezer-freezer dones,nt get down to temperature

There is a damper door that opens and closes when you move the thermostat. I would bet the door is functioning incorrectly. All the cooling of a refrig comes from the freezer and gets blown into the refrigerator compartment. If that damper door is open too far it will have constant freezer air blowing in....and if it's not open enough obviously the refrig will not get cool. Look at the upper left corner of your refrigerator, the center rear wall of the refrig or just feel around for a vent will cool air blowing out of it......Then take it apart and see if anything is broken.

SOURCE: Freezer section not freezing

If you only had ice buildup in one section of the evaporator you have a weak/inefficient compressor.
You need a new compressor or a new refrigerator.

SOURCE: i have just purchased a swan fride freezer ,i left

call the company you bought it from if it's new they should do a service call for free. Could be defective or oil in the capillary tube but somethings not right shut it down and unplug and make the call it won't cost anything and they can tell you what to check and if it does not work then they will come out and fix it for you. If you can't get to them and need it right away let me know and I will try to help but doing anything could void any warranty you might have. Hope this helps and thanks for using fix-ya.

\my fridge freezer has not refrozen after I defrosted it the fridge light is on

You say the fridge is making a 'working' noise, by which i assume the compressor is running, if so is it very hot (almost untouchable) to the touch? if so you can rule out the thermostat as this is obviously sending power to the compressor. You didnt happen to use a sharp object to remove the ice from the freezer did you? if so it is possible that you have punctured the evaporator and in so doing let all the refrigerant escape.

Swan sr 5078 not cold but motor running fine very hot at the back

Sounds like youve lost all your refrigerant, compressor will just keep running till it reaches the set temp. turn it off & call a repairman or buy a new one.

I am looking for the instruction manual to my lost freezer SWAN SR5030

If you lost the freezer, why do you need the manual?

Swan is a UK company that does not have a website for their freezers. The UK help center phone number for Swan is: SWAN helpline: 0845 610 4118

Also, isn't a freezer a little large and hard to loose?
