I have a Beko CF5533 frost free fridge freezer about 5.5 years old. The other day I noticed the noise from the fan in the freezer was slightly different but it was not blocked and later the food in my freezer was soft. It was running at about -5c The fridge at 4c about normal. It seemed to be turning on and off normally with the thermostat.
I tried turning off the electric for an hour then back on but still the same (this fixed same problem about 2 years ago) . Yesterday turned off the power for 24 hours and left the doors open. There was a lot of water on the plastic tray on top of the compressor which I emptied. it now works ok and the freezer gets down to about -18c It was last switched off for 1 month about 2.5 months ago so it would have defrosted then. Is there a part I should be looking to replace in this model ? I have read about a heater for the internal elements but cant find any spare part listed only the control board which fits at the top back of the unit

Its still working ok and I have been monitoring the current used to try and and see if the defrost heater is coming on. Does anyone know how often it should come on. I haven't seen any sign of it only about 0.4 amps when the motor is running
