Electrolux ENN2643AOW fridge freezer should auto defrost.
Works fine unless you open the freezer door more than about 10 times. Then fridge is no longer cold.
Can be solved by switching off and leaving fridge and freezer open for 24 hours.
Freezer seal looks good, careful to re-close freezer fully each time
Fridge set to 4C, freezer to 18C, when fault evident the 18C and alarm triangle flash.
If direct hair dryer to vents between fridge and freezer can feel some warm air coming from fridge to freezer.
Thinking of pouring hot water down the vent connecting fridge to freezer.
Any ideas how to solve?
