Question about Hotpoint FFA90 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
Hi, I have a Hotpoint FFA90, and ice is forming at the bottom of the freezer section. It looks as though water is coming through the vent just above the bottom shelf and then freezing, as there is a trail of ice, (like water trickling), down the left hand side of the bottom rear of the freezer. Any help to stop this would be most grateful. Thank in advance.
The freezer should have a drain hole for the defrost water to flow through. This will drain into a pan outside of the freezer cabinet. If this drain tube becomes blocked it will not allow the water to drain out and it will accumulate in the bottom of the freezer section. You will have to verify that the drain is clear through to the drain pan. this can be done carefully with a piece of stiff wire. There should also be some sort of a water trap on the drain tube to prevent air from entering the freezer compartment through the drain tube.
