It sounds like the defrost heater is burned out. Remove the inside back cover in the freezer to see if the coils are frozen up. If so, more than likely your defrost heater has bit the dust. It is located at the bottom of the inside coil of the freezer.
Also, you could be have a clogged condensor coil. It is located on the out side back of the Fridge. You need to remove the panel from the lower part of the fridge and do a thorugh cleaning.

This button is the winter/summer setting.
If you switch it on so as the red mark shows this is set for the summer setting.
What it does is allows the interior light to come on very dimly when you shut the door.
The fridge then thinks it is too warm and starts to cool down more, designed for when the ambient temperature is high.
Hope this helps

I had the same problem. Hotpoint told me it was the electronic card, and I waited 3 weeks for them to get one in stock. Just been fitted and made no difference, though the Hotpoint man told me it was fixed. I have just spent half an hour "shaking and whaking" various bits at the back of the fridge freezer and the compressor has finally kicked into life.
Concentrate your shaking and whacking on the black square thing to the left of the compressor.
Going to quit my job and become a freezer repair man.

check the compressor to see if it works. You should hear a sound that sounds like a low hum.
Is the compressor fan on at the bottom rear of frig?

Many times a freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong.
