Fridge freezer is not cooling or freezing + running liquid sound.
Hello, I hope someone can give me some clues as to whats going on here.
Its a Electra ECB 99R Fridge-Freezer. probably 20+years old. Twice this year after turning the thermostat to get it colder its just completely stopped getting cold. (earlier in the year I kept turning it off/on and turning the thermostat to a different setting and got lucky as it came back on, worked for 6 months) It seems to have been triggered again by changing the thermostat.
Jiggling the thermostat hasn't worked, it sounds ok when it first comes on(after being unplugged for hours), sometimes even the first freezer coil starts to get cold then a slight click from the relay(?) and its off. Immediately unplugging and replugging, and there aren't any sounds from a motor or buzzing.
What I have noticed, even before the first break down is the running liquid sound coming from within, its not ice or water in the fridge freezer.
Does this sound like a thermostat issue? Or something bigger? Why the running liquid sound?
