I had the same problem on 27th December 2007, orange light flashing. I telephoned the Warrranty company who informed me to switch it off for 10 to 15 minutes and the light should go out.
I did this and it worked however temperature with mine is fluctuating as I have bought a thermometer and am currently waiting for an Engineer to call (he's due on the 7th January). Hope this solution is useful, it may solve your problem.

SOURCE: fridge doesn't get cold enough
you have either a Defrost heater / a defrost timer/ or a defrost bi-metal that is bad. if you post your model # i can look it up and show you how to set it into defrost to see if the heaters are ok
Since you replaced the timer already that leaves two things you need to check set it into defrost if you know how and remove the panel in the back wall of the freezer you should see the heater(s) are on if not check pwr 120vac at the heaters if 0 volts the bi-metal is bad

Red Light : Alarm high temperature.
Amber Light : Fast freeze function (ie ignores thermostat and keeps unit freezing all the time).
Green light: mains power.
If you have lost temperature on a freezer it is usually a major fault either the compressor has failed or you have lost charge (possibly the start relay). If you are able to get to the rear of the unit and check the compressor, if it is hot then it is more likely a major fault. A good fridge guy can normally tell the problem within a short time of inspecting the unit. Sorry to not sound hopeful. Good luck.

This to me sounds as if either your gas is not circulating through the refrigeration system, or you have a problem with thermostat. If you have recently physically moved the fridge and then powered the appliance up on the mains without letting the gas settle, then you could have damaged the fridge. And there is not really a lot you can do about this, unless you want to call out a refrigeration engineer to re-gas your fridge and assess the circulation of the pumped cold air flow.
Other problems aside of gas and thermostat could be associated with the pump (if your model has one fitted), and with this in mind, i have a good mind to have a look at the SIOS (spares, Information, Ordering, System) disc for zanussi vendored models and then get back to you once i have a further solution for you. However, I will need your make and model of zanussi fridge, so if you have this to hand it will be most appreciated. In the sad event that you dont have the paperwork/ manual for the fridge, then you can find the manufacturers model details on the rear of the fridge. however, when you move the fridge, you will need to let it stand again before powering up the unit after repair, and this should be done for a period of no less than 24 hrs, and no less than 28hrs if your appliance is a fridge freezer combi.
So once again, when i recieve further information regarding your make and model of refrigerator, then i will be able to fully investigate this matter for you, and try to come up with your most appropriate solution..
In the mean time, i bid you take care, and hope to hear from you soon

I had this problem and it was fixed relatively easily. Get everything out of your fridge freezer and switch it off overnight to allow it to defrost.
In the bottom freezer compartment there is a panel behind the draws which you can remove but you will need a special tool from a DIY shop. Its like an allen key, but with a star shaped end.
When I got the panel off I found that the filament was covered thick with ice even though it had been off for hours. No wonder it wasn't working properly. I melted this with a hairdryer. You want to take your time with this as you could easily damage the freezer if you try chipping the ice out.
Freezer works perfectly now and is very quiet.

Tips for a great answer:
If there is no cooling
at all on the fridge section but the freezer works then it is confirmed that
the compressor and gas pressure is OK. Now shut off the fridge and leave it
powered off while you clean and check the evaporator for frost. If frost is
seen it is a good indication as the compressor is working with sufficient gas
Now after about 6 hours plug in the fridge to start. Observe cooling to happen in about one hour and ice to from under three hours.
Earlier make sure that the thermostat was set to normal mode for freezer and fridge.
However if ice forms in the freezer then observe the fridge for about 24 hours for cooling to continue and the fridge to cut off . If not the auto defrost timer, or the thermostat must be checked. Frost formation without defrosting could block the air flow and so shut the air passage to the fridge. Also the blower fan must work and if this is not working then the fan can be faulty. Also a fault on the control unit is a suspect to non functioning of any one of these components.
If defrost timer works but frost keeps forming check while the compressor shuts if the heaters are working, check continuity of the heaters.
So try this test using a multi-meter on the defrost timer and the thermostat and make your observations so that we come to the solution.
