Hotpoint Fridge freezing the food.

Hi,
My Hotpoint fridge, twin in size to the FZM84 freezer, is TOO cold and is freezing the food. It is on minimum setting.
Can you tell me where the thermostat is located, and Part No if possible.
Thanks

    Hi,

    Thanks for quick response.

    I cannot find a serial number anywhere on the fridge.

    It is 6ft tall, grey and has 'A+' in a small circle on top of door.



    We defrosted the fridge but it is still much too cold on lowest setting. There is ice on the plate inside the fridge at the back.

    Is it an engineer job to change thermostat? I am technical... I just don't know where it is.

    I would be grateful if you could describe the procedure.



    Thanks

This is not my area of expertise, but, I had the exact same problem with my fridge, and, Mr. Ginko is much more qualified here than I, and he is a good expert, but, my problem was that the door was not sealing properly, and the fridge compresser was running all of the time. I could see the interior light on, inside the fridge, when it was dark in the kitchen...I readjusted the door, and my problem was cured. This may help, maybe not. But, it's worth a look. Thanks for choosing FixYa!

Thermostat is buried behind the walls of that unit, are you ready to run this one..takes quite a bit of time..but
will get the item, if you can supply the actual serial number from inside or back of that unit..

Hotpoint frost free fridge freezer the fridge not working but freezer is


Hi Reginald

Most refrigerator / freezer units chill the fridge area by venting some fraction of the very cold air from the freezer into the fridge compartment through a channel that has a mechanical air valve in it. In this way, it can control the chilled air flow, and aim for the set temperature, all the way down, in some cases, to freezing, or even colder, on the fridge side.

That vent unit, depending on your model, sill be somewhere in the wall that separates the freezer from the fridge. What can happen is that moisture condenses into the louver that slides to control the airflow, it freezes, and then system is stuck, since it's cold on the freezer side, and this keeps the louver frozen stuck. If that is the case, shutting the unit off for a while may recover function, though getting it to where ice is melting in an interior wall may be more risk of food spoilage than you'd want. Otherwise, use a search engine to look for 'how to test freezer / refrigerator vent in make/model', and you'll likely come across all sorts of youtube and step-by-step tutorials.

Good Luck!

Fridge of my Hotpoint FFA90 fridge-freezer freezes


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

Ffa70 hotpoint fridge freezer


Adjust the temperature control for the freezer to a normal setting. Fast freeze is only for when new products are put in that need to be frozen. This locks the system into a continuous run mode and could be responsible for the freezing condition in the refrigerator section. Check the temperatures with a thermometer as the sensor for the freezer temperature could be bad causing the light to come on.
