Question about Hotpoint 4.87 cu. ft. / 138 liter Upright Freezer FZA50
Hi I have a bosch fridge freezer. The fridge is working but the freezer part although turned up to max is not getting cold enough.
The thermostat shows just below freezing and ice has stayed frozen but food will not freeze.
try it on max setting. lint clogging up stuff in the back? needs defrosting? low on refrigerant (freon)? call repairman for that last one

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.
