I've got a Siemens KS24V02 Fridge Freezer, which has become pretty noisy.

It started emitting a very loud buzzing noise, I shifted it a bit and that seemed to reduce the noise. Subsequently I defrosted the freezer, and on switching it back on, the internal bulb blew, and the fridge did not restart.

A combination of switching it off and on a few times, and shifting the fridge a little seemed to coax it back to life, but it's now buzzing quite a lot when it comes on - any ideas?

It's around 8 years old, is it worth getting it repaired or would I be better off replacing it?

Sounds a bit tired..... The noise is probably coming from the compressor - it should be sitting on four rubber shock mountings. These settle over time and can lead to a variety of interesting noises, most of which, whilst irritating, are harmless.

Hopefully the bulb blowing was just a result of dampness caused by the defrost process.

Seimens/Bosch is generally decent gear - probably worth getting someone in to check it out - have a look in the Directories section for a UKW engineer in your area, or pop your postcode up and someone will pick up on it.

Which bit of "Unplug it" is causing the problem?

OK, thanks. I'm in Cambridge (CB4) - which doesn't seem to be covered in the Directories section.
