Question about Freezers
I have a Hotpoint F/F 2 months old Model FF 175BP(previously I had a separate Fridge and Freezer which were v. quiet.
This new Fridge Freezer switches on and off continuously EVERY 30 MINUTES and often rattles a lot.
There are two controls - one for Fridge which I have set just under medium and the frisge works well and stays at about 4 or 5 degrees all the time.
The frezer control I have set just below medium setting and freezer works no problem at about minus 8 or 10 on my thermometer.
When the unit cuts in there is initially just a whooshing sound (is this the fan) which is ok. After a few minutes there are other noises like rattles as if a compressor is working.
As i have an open plan kitchen diner I find all this annoying. Should the cut in only happen every few hours not every 30 mins?
Also, when i put say fresh bread and unfrozen items in for the first time in top drawer - the unit does not cut off for about three hours!!
It is still under the initial 90 day replacement guarantee. is this the norm for F/Fs or do you think i have a duff one?
Thanks a lot
Cycling every 30 mins is normal. bear in mind that frost free are more noisy as there are fans running as well.
you appear to have temp in freezer too high - should be -18degC
