Hi
Wife did  a silly thing  , after a trip away emptied  the fridge left  the door  slightly  open  as always  but didn't  turn it off so was looking for power  so automatically  used all of our gas.question is would  it have damaged the fridge  as the door was open. Can't turn it on now as back to dealer to have new air con fitted

Ok, a waste of gas, but it should have done no harm at all, in my opinion. There isn't much on an absorption fridge to wear out - the only moving part is liquid ammonia in the pipes on the back.

Hi  update on fridge.  Had the new air con fitted  that's OK asked if they had checked fridge?,told that it was OK. Had it on last night to check it freezer  department  OK but fridge  still warm.worst experience  with the dealer in 3 years. Obviously  they didn't check it properly.  Looks like another  trip to them!!. Any idea what the problem  could be? Easy fix I hope. Going to France in 2 weeks .no chance  of a new fridge  in that time thanks  again from not a happy  person.!!

The body of fridge draws cold from the freezer box  if that's OK, can't see the dealer finding anything else. How long did you try it for?
You need to place a thermometer in the ice box and see what temp it drops to overnight,  if -14 or colder it's working fine, and body should be around +4 or +5

Hi thanks for your  answer. It has been left  on all night and all day. Just been outside  again and the top vent (frezzer department  is warm)bottom one is  nothing, not warm or cold.fridge walls inside not cold.thought they would  have been? Need to try the thermometer  .I think  next.
