Question about Hotpoint Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a 10 year old hotpoint mistral plus frost free fridge freezer whic keeps coming up with EA as an error message in the display screen. We have turned the appliance on and off which sometimes solves the problem for a short period. On one occasion the fridge stopped working entirely. The freezer seems to be unaffected. We live in Cyprus and the weather in the past 6 weeks has reached 38oC. Could this have an adverse effect on the appliance? Please advise. Thank you.

    We have the same problem. I've read on other forums that it means there is no response from the baffle? I have no idea what this means but need a cheap solution if there's one available? Thanks for any info and help

Why has my fridge stopped working but my freezer still works its Hotpoint mistral plus


Possible that there is block on the air passage from the freezer fan which can be due to frost or failure of the fan.You need to check if there is free flow from the fan, also the setting of the fridge temperature.

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

My fridge freezer Hotpoint Mistral Frost free keeps changing temperature and flashing E8. What does this mean?


E8- Evaporator thermistor short circuit

Well this is a sensor,, found in the freezer compartment of the f/f

what you have to do is reove the draws fro mthe freezer and you will c a panel which has 6 screws., remove the panel and and you will c a fan, toward the right of the fan you will c a yellow plug with a bit of wire on it,

This is what you have to replace

try connect distributions you can find them on the net if your in the uk that is

hope this helps

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.

I have a Hotpoint Mistral frost free fridge freezer model FF72P (according to the sales invoice). The freezer is working fine but the fridge is not cooling. The fan that circulates the air is working...


It is possibly the fan hitting any overformed ice.
defrosting by shutting it off overnight would be the best to do first.
Or at least shut it off for a few hours.

Hotpoint FFL49X Fridge compartment


GE Hotpoint has a history of bad fans and poor customer service. Unfortunate and a costly defect. Repair this yearly, forever or trash and buy new???
