    Help! My fridge freezer has stopped working. Compressor feels quite warm/hot. It was making a buzzing noise this morning, and I came home just now and it's actually warm inside the fridge. Like something has heated it. I've unplugged it.
    It's frost free, and no water in the tray advice the compressor.
    Help please!

    Thanks. All the posts seemed to be for issues where the freezer is still working but not the fridge. The whole thing has stopped for me. I can't seem to access anywhere to see if ice has built up anywhere.
    Fan in freezer send to be working fine...

    I do appreciate your reply. I can see you've helped many people with this issue and it must be frustrating to have to say the same thing over and over.

    Do you have a thermostat knob in the fridge part and, when you turn it can you hear it click?

    It's a touch sensitive panel. I have now turned the fridge off to see if it's a build up of ice... will listen for any clicking noise when I turn it back on tomorrow. Thanks

    JohnD - I've just come home after 6 hours of the unit being unplugged and not a drop of water in the tray above the compressor... :(

    any drips inside the cabinet? doors have to be left open because the ducts are inside the back.
