Fridge freezer not cooling any more, fault finding.

This can be caused by a thermostat failure but that is rare to be honest. More likely the compressor is not running or not running properly for some reason.

  • Compressor failure
  • Compressor PTC
  • Compressor relay
  • Thermostat
  • Electronic failure
  • Thermistor failure

If the fridge cools a little on a fridge freezer and the freezer section seems okay then it can also be a sign that there is either a blockage or a shortage of gas. Please note that a gas shortage will not manifest itself magically after a few years unless there has been physical damage to the pipework.

Oven does not work. Timer set – manual or automatic?

Date: Friday, January 23rd, 2015

341091764_fca69ef690-300x225In quite a few instances we come across a problem where a person has an oven on automatic and they can’t use it.
For the oven to work on the automatic, the timer needs to be set. It’s best if the oven is in manual mode. Read your oven manual first before doing anything else.

If you don’t have a manual, try doing this:
Try holding the ‘bell’ button down at the same time as you press the ‘pan x’ button.
Failing that turn off the mains cooker switch so it resets when switched on again..


Try to put your oven into manual mode, if you can’t operate it, before calling an engineer. Good luck!

Common electric oven problems.

Date: Thursday, January 22nd, 2015

From our experience, the most common problem with the electric ovens is the failure of the heating element.

In these instances, the heating element needs replacing, the average cost of the element is £30-£35 or more.

Our engineers carry heating elements with them and can repair the oven there and then. Recently we had a job where the heating element was fine, but the oven kept tripping the electricity in the house. It turned out that the wiring to the control module was burned out, the engineer had to clean the wires and solder them for the oven to work.

Leave a message or call us if you have a problem with your oven or electric cooker.
