Question about Hotpoint FFM70 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
Hello all, I have a Hotpoint FFM70 not cooling fridge or freezer.
The defrost and high temp alert lamps are on.
The compressor is on and fluid noise apparent,and the valve(in white box)beside compressor clicks in.The internal fan comes on at switch on and runs for a few seconds.I have measured resistance of 4? temp sensors.Are 2 of the sensors built into the cabinet in the fridge section?I see the 2 in freezer(red and green)Has anybody got a block diagram for p.c.b. or where can I get pcb. Any help appreciated.
the problem is there is a build up of ice insid of the freezer .
What you need to do is take out all your draws in the freezer and you will see a plastic backing held on with about 8 screws . undo all the screws and the back should come aay and you will see all the ice built up . just use a hair drier to melt the ice and that should cure your problem.

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.

Either the repair guy did not wire up the heater correctly or he replaced the wrong part, if the heater was good it was likley to be the defrost thermostat...I would call the repair guy back to check.
