I had the same fault, i simply replaced the 240 volt heater element, found at the rear bottom right of the fridge and it worked fine for three months.The fridge has now stopped working again and i now suspect the dial is at fault as i still have power to the fridge.I am running the fridge on gas until i decide what to do next. Good luck
