    You should have read the small print Jonney.

    Electrolux are the biggest rip off merchants.

    You have to buy the Fridge filament seperately (the thing that makes you fridge cold) The cheapest Filaments are around £2000 without VAT.

    They give you the Freezer filament as a gesture of goodwill. you are basically just buying the outside of the fridge and all the little drawers etc in the initial price.

    I don't know - I was only joking :DD

    I think when fridges die - they are pretty much dead and you have to replace them - but I am not an expert. So hopefully someone helps you out on here :DD

    I used to have an Electrolux washer that was shite, dunno about the fridge freezers though. If I were you I would buy a new one, it would most likely be cheaper than to pay to get one repaired. You could look at this and check it out for yourself though, could be a way to do it yourself Good luck!

    Wrap it in a towel for a while, you might get a few more hours out of it.

    if it`s not your thermostat, about 40 quid or your PCB about 60, don`t bother and get a new one...
    LG do good fridge freezers, don`t get Electrocrap or hoover all those companies use imported models from China and the like...

    Best of luck with your fridge mate. I hope it all works out. I know the feeling; as soon as any of my major appliances fail I turn right to the off-topic section of Evo Web too. Great fridge expert people like Chris Wright there waiting in the wings to help you out, its awesome.

    remember kids, putting too much stuff in your fridge and it won't work :)
