Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

Hotpoint fridge Hi Ginko, Reference my Hotpoint/Ariston/Zanussi fridge. MSAA44. There is no removable plate inside the fridge to get at the thermistor but what I did notice is that where the ice was forming on the back panel the inside lining is raised away from the insulation like a large flat bubble. Could this be a cause? Thanks for all your help John

That is probably caused by heath at the back of the fridge, check if the coil at the back is getting too hot.

Check if defrost system fan at the back of the fridge is working.

My washer door will not open its a wd645 model i cant find the lever when i took lid off


Hi.

The door latch is probably broken. Emergency opening can be done accessing the door latch from the inside of the washer assembly.

Before attempting an emergency opening, disconnect power cord and empty water inside the machine through the filter located at the bottom front side of the machine.

After removing water connect back the machine and try opening again.

If that does not work, then the machine must be disassembled. Most models have an emergency cable located on the inside of the door latch. Pulling the cable will release the latch.
The inside of the door latch is reached either from filter housing or from top of the machine. Either the filter (usually held by screws) or the top panel must be removed to access the inside of the lock mechanism.
Power must be kept off while doing maintenance. Due to the safety issues involved the door latch emergency opening and repair must be done by a trained technician.

Regards.

I keep getting error code F-14 on Hotpoint condenser dryer model CTD85


Hi.

F14 means that control board does not sense that machine is heating:

F14 - A fault with the water heating has occurred

When you get F14 the fault is usually either the thermistor or the heating element (electric dryer). Both parts are tested removing the part from the dryer and reading impedance at the part contact. If the part returns infinity, then the part is defective. If you need to contact a qualified technician use the phone number listed on your owners manual or check Hotpoint website.

Regards.

I purchased this machine last year now after ending the programme i.e.washing door is not opening and it is showing error 14. Could u please help me out. Regards


Hi.


The fault E14 on Hoover washers indicate a problem with the heating circuit. Element, Thermistor and Central Control unit must be tested.

About error codes and troubleshooting Hoover appliances see the links below:

Hoover After Sales Service - Online Fault Finder

(Hotpoint/Creda/Indesit/Ariston Error Codes)

If you need parts or diagrams see this tip explaining how to find parts and diagrams for most appliances: Where do I find parts and diagrams for my appliance?
The sellers apply to USA market. Elsewhere see your local hoover distributor.

If you need to call a technician ring the customer service number listed on the owner manual or check your local Hoover website.

Heater has been tested but does not heat


Hi.

Check the thermistor, it is connected in line with the heater. If thermistor reads open at the multimeter set on impedance, there will be no power to heater. Depending on model there may be more than one thermostat (thermistor and cut-off). If the problem is not a thermostat, check wiring and test the control module.

Errorcode EE in display. Whats wrong?


E1 - Freezer thermistor open circuit.
E2 - Freezer thermistor short circuit.
E3 - Fridge thermistor open circuit.
E4 - Fridge thermistor short circuit.
E7 - Evaporator thermistor open circuit.
E8 - Evaporator thermistor short circuit.
E9 - Temperature set switch open circuit
EA - No feedback from Baffle
EB - Fridge Baffle motor operating continuously
EE - Defrost time out

This was the only code listing with an EE error code - which is a Hotpoint - so if your's isn't a Hotpoint it is probably incorrect.

If you do have a Hotpoint Refrigerator then either the defrost timer is not functioning correctly or your heater element is malfunctioning.

I have a hotpoint fridge freezer model ff92ys the freezer is running ok but the fridge isnt cold enough i try to set it at +4 but it just sets itself back to +20 please help


The thermistor has probably failed. I had the same problem with my FF92s fridge/freezer. I replaced the thermistor and hey presto it works again.
The thermistor is loacted behind a removable panel inside the freezer section of the fridge/freezer. You also have to remove a polystyrene cover and a further metal cover to get tp the thermistor. Pull the metal cover from the left as it has wires attached to it on the right hand side. The thermistor is available to buy online, just google it.

Zanussi refrigerator/freezer model ZX99/5


Hi,
I had the same problem...it was a defrost problem in the freezer....mad i know...fridge doesnt work but freezer does...so its the freezer problem right!!!
This is how i solved it....there is fan behind the freezer compartment....you need to remove all the freezer draws then the plate at the back of the freezer compartment(everything is accessible from inside the freezer only) once removed you can put your hand up inside the gap(make sure power is off and unplugged) just in reach is the fan which you should be able to rotate with your fingers...mine was covered in ice and not able to move as a result the cold air couldnt be blown up into the fridge(the only thing controlling the air into the fridge is a flap and depending upon what fridge setting you have this determines how much cold air its letting in.)
If the fan has been frosted up you need to defrost the freezer....and source a new defrost sensor.
hope it helps.

Hotpoint fridge too cold!!


Hi John,

There had been changes in the system recently, and not all answers are being displayed.

Now I do not know where to find your original problem.

If you find any link to the thread in your old emails, copy and paste it here , so that I can track back the problem.

When fridge is freezing inside that can be caused by:

Bad temperature settings.(temp too high)
Bad climate conditions (very hot outside and fridge set to lowest temp)
Problem with evaporator system at the back of the fridge.
Faulty thermistor, not detecting when temp. is too low.
Compressor problems.

Try moving the fridge from the wall, this sort out many problems with condenser/compressor and evaporator.
If there is Ice inside also remove ice to get back to normal.

If that does not work, it is either the compressor coming to the end of its life, or a faulty thermistor.

I will try to find the original thread, I suggest to complain with fixya, we have had serious disruptins since the new Fixya system started to work.
