Does the fridge still do it's job? If it does then perhaps the fan only comes on when needed.

SOURCE: Hotpoint FFA70P Fridge freezer. High Freezer temp.

can you check the resistance of the fan?..or even the voltage going to the fan ( just be carefull ) if there is presence of voltage, then the problem is the fan, if there is none, you have to trace why. if it has a diagram, you an trace it. or the switch could have been open that is why it is not running. push the door switch if it has one and check again for presence of voltage. i hope i was able to help.

SOURCE: Hotpoint Mistral Frost Free Fridge freezer - fridge not getting cold

We have just had to call out an engineer to get our 1 1/2 year old Hotpoint Graphite Frost Free Fridge Freezer repaired. The fridge had almost entitely stopped cooling even when on high. I was amazed at how easily the problem was sorted. The engineer removed all the basktes from the freezer to access the screws on the inside backpanel of the freezer. Once this panel was removed it was clear that the so called Frost Free doesn't really mean what it says. The ice need to be melted with a bit of simple care. It is obvious that with a bit of care it is easliy a diy job BUT PLEASE BE CAREFUL AND READ THE NEXT PART BEFORE YOU BEGIN TO REMOVE THE ICE> The ice forms around variouys pipes etc and he usecd a screwdriver to help release the ice quicker than waiting for it to defrost and he also used a simple hairdryer to help speed up the process. He had a ntowel and a basin to take care of the water. Next time I would have no problem doing this myself but I would need to leave it a little while to defrost and NOT USE A SCREWDRIVER as I am sure somehow I would puncture a pipe or the wall of the freezer itself and I am quite used to doing the odd bit of DIY. On a difficulkty scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being difficult I would rate the job as about a 3. Hope this helps anyone who reads this about £70.

SOURCE: Hi i have a hotpoint mistral plus fridge freezer,

hi is this the frost free version ??? if it is which i think it is it could be a fault with temp module{frost free have electronic modules to control the system rather than a old fashioned bog standard thermostat inside the fridge} the fans should be controlled by the module in case of frost free models it could be the module which is playing up

I have a hotpoint fridge freezer FUFL 1810, there is a puddle of water appearing on the kitchen floor coming from underneath the unit any help please ?


its the evaporator try its mounted above the compressor

perhaps the freezer has quick defrosted and the try is too full

use a towel and soak all the water off

check the freezer balast fan is running ok and fast enough {good speed}
or the freezer can reach a state where it just melts a little of the ice monster

so

my adivce is the run your food in it down
then completely defrost it
and you need to clean all the pipes that go too the evaporator tray
and then dress them with salt

they are usually at the bottom of the V shaped channels both at the back of the fridge
and also behind the freezer rear wall
it usualy has a panel with a few screws or pop plastic pins
that allows you too get too the blast fan and the evapoator V shaped channel
that guides the water to the evaporator pipe

so it prob needs something done with the frost free unit
i think its just got too the point its gummed up

with ice and the fan isnt working efficently anymore

sounds like the automatic defrost system failed and if you removed the evap cover it would be blocked with frost.

Hi my freezer door on FFA70 Hotpoint isn't closing. I have taken the draws out and defrosted it. The door closes when none of the draws are in, but doesn't when the draws are placed in their...


Hi, I had exactly the same problem and eventually realised that the panel at the back of the freezer was coming loose. When I removed it I found that all the parts behind the panel were covered in ice, a lot of ice! So I have defrosted this ice using bowls of steaming water (not sure if this is an appropriate way to defrost, but it worked fine for me), I have also read you can use a hair dryer to spead up the process - apparently if you try and chip the ice off it can damage the parts in your freezer. I have now fixed the panel back on the freezer and it is working like new and I have had this fridge freezer for years now.

Samsung Model SR 21 NME. The freezer is on the top, this freezers fine, but the fridge isnt even cool. We have taken the back off the freeze to do a complete defrost. The fan works fine. But the ttemp dial...


Inside the fridge compartment, at the back, is a panel that can be removed, remove the screws careful with the bulb, its plugged in behind the panel.

the panel has a vent that allows cold air flow from the freezer, this will often freeze completely shut with ice. let it thaw out, then check to see that the vent opens, or closes when you turn the dial, the best thing is to open it as wide as possible, I even used toothpicks to open the valve even more, its just a thin flap, surrounded by Styrofoam.

afterwards if your fridge is too cold, adjust the real thermostat located in the freezer.

Hotpoint. Water is leaking from behind light bulb


The drain hose in the back of your freezer is frozen shut. The water you see is coming from the defrost cycle. Turn off the refrigerator. Remove the floor from your freezer and remove/thaw all of the ice. Locate the drain in the back of the freezer. It may be behind the back panel. Thaw the drain until water flows freely through it. Reassemble the freezer, and you are back in business.

Freezer works good, refrigerator does not get cold


How to check everything
http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/refrigerator/refrigerator.php

The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp ..
If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

Freezer is frosted in back Refrigerator is warm


The problem is the defrost system located behind the freezer back panel.

The defrost system (AKA evap. system) is composed by an heating coil, a fan , and a defrost thermostat, and its function is avoiding ice formation on coil.
When defrost system is defective the fridge wont cool down properly

In your fridge , either evaporator fan, thermostat or heating element is faulty, and the ice on coils is preventing the appliance from cooling down properly.

Freezer ok fridge warm (15 degrees)


You have a hotpoint mistral f/f i take it in silver..

Check to see if the fan is running at the bottom on the back of the fridge its next to the compressor behind the panel ...
if the compressor is running and the fan is not then your fault is the fan..

IF the fan is running then its the sensors...

These are located in the freezer section, pull out the draws and remove the panel behind it.... six screws.......... you will c threes plugs at the top ledt hand side.. the yellow one is for the fridge the green one for the freezer.... replace both if your freezer is not working...

Also just below the freezer door there is a panel remove the panel and use a vaccumm to clean the fluff that has built up on the coils..

hope this helps if you need anymore help dont hesitate to ask...

by the way the sensors are called evap thermistors...
