    Leading from this - I then need to take my old fridge 15 mins down the road. Can I simply plug-drive-replug in and use straight away or does it have to be switched off for a period of time and same again when turning it back on?

    Thanks again

Call 800-ge-cares for specifics, but generally you can use it right away. The unit should pull down to temp in under a half an hour. If you are trading out a working refrigerator do a direct transfer and the cold food will help it pull down. Make sure the new one works before getting rid of the old. Delivery can be brutal and show no signs of damage.

    If you can transport the old one standing up. If you are going to put it on a pick or trailer have the unit front facing away from the wind so you don't get road debris hitting it, I recommend you using the box off the new as a cover. Make sure the doors are secured with a tie down strap to prevent them from opening during transport. If you do have to lay it down you want let it sit for a while to let the oil return to the compressor.

If the unit is not cooling and the compressor is not starting, replace the relay on the compressor and you should be good to go. Here is a link to that part. GE WR7X225 Relay AppliancePartsPros com

Why is Hotpoint RLA64T Fridge freezing up after new thermostat fitted?


Make sure that the temp probe from the thermostat is located exactly where the old one was. If it had a plastic sleeve on the old one, the new one will need that sleeve. You shouldn't need to calibrate the control if it is the one specified for this model. If it was a generic replacement then possibly it could need some adjustment.

Hotpoint RLA64T fridge freezing up after new thermostat fitted


WHEN U TALK ABOUT THE THERMOSTAT U MEAN THE COLD CONTROL THERMOSTAT OR DEFROST TIMER THERMOSTAT? WHEN UR PROBLEM SOUNDS MORE LIKE THE DEFROST TERMINATOR OR BAD HEATING ELEMENT, LOCATED ON THE FREEZER EVAPORATOR COILS? IF ITS STAYING ON ALL THE TIME U HAVE A DEFROST ISSUE? OR BAD SEALS ON DOOR AND DIRTY COMPRESSOR

It is a french door, items in the fridge part are freezing, what should temperature in freezer and fridge be?


The factory presets your temperatures to the MID / MID setting of 0? for the freezer and 37? for the refrigerator. Refrigerator adjustment range is -15? to +15? in the freezer and 33? to 47? in the refrigerator. Depending on ambient temperatures the temperatures will be + or - 6? the set point. Whenever you make a temperature adjustment, you need to wait 24 hours to notice any temperature difference.

To adjust your temperatures: Adjust controls according to your Use and Care guide. Start out by making sure your settings are at the factory setting of MID / MID. Make only one adjustment: Adjust one control and wait 24 hours before making another adjustment.

To measure temperatures: If you try to measure temperatures, it is important to follow these directions: Fresh Food Section: Put thermometer in a glass of water. Check the temperature during the first door opening after a long (8+hours) non-usage period (such as overnight or when you arrive home from work). Frozen Food Section: Put thermometer between two bags of vegetables. Check the temperature during the first door opening after a long (8+hours) non-usage period (such as overnight or when you arrive home from work).

Freezer will not come on It is at our cottage and last week end when we arrived it also wasn't on but when I turned the control higher it came on and froze the food very well. We left 5 days ago and just...


What is the temperature in the cabin when it isn't occupied??
If the temperature in cabin drops to or below 55 degrees, then the thermostat that controls the machine, being in the fresh food compartment will not cycle the machine.
If you warm up the cabin for a decent period of time, and it fails to run, you will need to replace the main cold control.
Without the approx. age, the style of the machine, top, bottom or SXS style and where the temperature controls are located. Both in Fresh food compartment, one each in freezer and fresh food area, this is the best I can give you.
Please, in the future, give as many details about what machine we are working on to give you the best possible answers. Jack
P.S. is it possible someone shut off the power that runs the machine when you left ???

Will my mothers new fridge freezer work out in the garage


This is from the hotpoint web site.

If the room temperature drops below 14°C for an
extended period of time, the ideal temperature will not
be reached in the freezer compartment and food
preservation will be reduced.

You can read the manual here if it will help you.
