Hello Jeanneary9,

Proper AIR CIRCULATION is critical to the
proper operation of the unit as a whole...
(I prefer my milk ICY cold... but fluid).

First thing to do is inventory your air vents
inside the FREEZER area... to ASSURE that
NONE are blocked (from open)...

Then inspect the air vent INTO the refrigerator
area that NONE of those are blocked (closed)

Most modern refrigerators give preference
to the milk storage shelf...

ELSE...
(first try a full 3 day DEFROST... (unloaded
with doors wide open... Then set to original settings
(three more days)))...

Only then you are looking at (sorting) a
DEFECTIVE thermostat...!!

I use (rather inexpensive) TAYLOR ($6 - USA)
refrigerator thermometers to regulate temperatures...
and STAY AWAY from "adjusting" as much as
Possible... as it can take UP TO 3 days (72 hours)
for the refrigerator to stabilize...

Hope this helps

Try contacting the hotline again and ask them if the freezer has a frost sensor on it. If it does, the sensor is not kicking the thermostat to allow for the unit to defrost.

SOURCE: Hotpoint Ice diamond fridge freezer both green & red lights on.?

bulmer...it takes about two days to fully defrost these units unless you take the freezer section cover off and use a heat source. If you do...be sure to protect yourself against water and electricity mixing....not healthy. See below for another note.

clean the condenser coils below the unit.

check for the amount of gas in the unit. It must be off for half an hour. Remove the back fiber panel. The big thing is the compressor. Clean off the largest pipe coming out of it. Plug the unit in...watch out for the fan! The pipe should frost up and then clear off or stay wet after about 5 minutes. It should not be frosty. If it is, you need refrigerant.

Note: If you do remove the inside freezer panel and defrost, you can see how much refrigerant you have in your unit. Start the unit. Wait 5 minutes and observe the coils. They should be evenly frosted end to end. If approximately so, you're good. If not, you're low on gas.

Check the wall socket, the breaker and the thermostat control inside the machine. Also check if you can hear the compressor working at the back.

look at number 304. Ice more than likely has formed and not letting air flow from the freezer to the fridge.

I need to replace the rubber seal on my Hotpoint ice diamond freezer door I can't find any fixing screws on the inner door panel can I assume then that the panel clips on.


Me too, I have a Hotpoint Iced Diamond Under counter fridge that needs a new seal and i also cant see any fixings to remove it. I did read somewhere that you can't replace them you need to buy a complete new door.

Frezer does not seem to be working in the cold


s it should the ambient temperatures that you said are way to cold to expect the freezer to operate properly. move it indoors and or contact the manufacture and see if the have a kit to put on the unit to work properly.
