Hotpoint fza21 fast freeze not working

Noticed the food at top of freezer had thawed, bottom trays were okay. Removed back of freezer which was all iced up and defrosted the freezer.
I have now switched it back on, the red light is still on although the freezer is cold but nothing happens if I press the fast freeze button.
Grateful for any suggestions!

Fridge/freezer model FFA90P frost free ice has


The water coming from the bottom is from the evaporater tray because it is too full and running over. There is a grill on the front bottom of the frig. ,and there is a srew or two on either side probably 1/4" maybe 5/16" loosen these and remove the grill. If no srews visible then it just snapps in. Remove grill and slide tray out and dump it.
The icing problem under the freezer tray is a defosting issue. you can move the food items to a cooler with ice or another unit and let this one thaw out with the doors open and unplugged and towl on the floor, the tray that is overflowing now will overflow again while the frig. is unplugged because there is no heat being generated to cause evaporation. You will need to have this checked out by a pro, generaly a service fee and they will tell you what has failed and can ballpark a price to fix. once the unit is thawed, ( this can take 12- 14 hrs) the unit will work again until the air passages get frozen over again. I suspect defrost heater element, defrost heater timer if ice maker equipted,there is also a little fan up there tan can fail. without seeing the unit in person only guesses. the thawing trick will buy some time.

Top mounted freezer on refrigerator not working


Move the refrigerator to a room that is at least 50 degrees F.

Temps on most refrigerators are regulated by the fresh foods temp. If your garage is let's say 35 degrees, the fresh foods temp will most likely never raise enough to turn the refrigerator on. With the refrigerator never running, the freezer compartment will warm to 35 degrees, resulting in everything melting. Even if garage is a bit warmer, say 45, the refrig will not run long enough for the freezer to maintain a low enough temperture. If the garage temp falls to below freezing, say 20 degrees, the food in the fresh foods compartment will freeze. (outdoor beverage dispensers have internal heaters to prevent product from freezing !) Please don't rate this if not a Fix-Ya for you, as anything else lowers my score.

Hotpoint FAZ50 Frost Free Freezer


If this is a frost free unit as I received it posted you may have a problem in that it is not frost free. The cooling coil may be frozen over stopping air circulation. There would be a defrost timer located somewhere in back. Located the clutch head screw and turn it clockwise SLOWLY until you hear one audible click. That should put the system into the defrost mode. Wait about 30 minutes in which time the system should return to the cooling mode (usually 18-22 minutes). If it does not restart the compressor after that time turn the clutch head screw clockwise again and it should restart. If you had to turn the screw the second time it would indicate a bad defrost timer. In this case replace the timer.

GIBSON DEEP FREEZE IS RUNNING BUT EVERYTHING IS THAWING OUT


Might try unplugging for a few hours and then plug it back in. There is a possibility that it slugged the compressor and there is a restriction in the line. Sometimes when the compressor fails to stop running in cold air the liquid gets back to the compressor. It can cause a bit of gunk to be picked up out of the oil and carried to the expansion line and plug up the line. Maybe turning it off will let the plug fall free and not replug the line. Worth a try anyway.....
