Question about Hotpoint FFM90 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
When the motor kicks into gear it makes a lot of noise - this is only a recent problem and the fridge is only just over 2 years old. When the fridge door is opened after it start making the noise you can hear the motor struggling and chocking.
It sounds like it could be ice around the fan motor. Unplug it and let it defrost for about 12 hrs with the doors open. Plug it back in and see if it has quit making the noise. If it did it probably needs the defrost timer replaced. Good luck. kstfas

I had this fridge freezer with the same problem, it's quite easy to fix. Switch off, remove but do not unpack the freezer drawers (insulate them in a cardboard box) then remove the rear panel in the freezer compartment. Remove all the ice you find; try thawing it with steam from a kettle. Also, if the drain is blocked with ice you can get access to it the same way, try pouring in hot water to thaw it. To remove the freezer compartment panel you need a socket 6mm I think. With the right tool it only takes about an hour start to finish.
