This is probably because you turned off the fridge at the mains (to defrost??). To stop the flashing lights and to restore normal operation, turn both the Supercool and Superfreeze knobs counterclockwise to "off" and then back to the operating position. Thats all!

    amazing as it sounds, I followed the above instructions, and 10 min later all seems to be fixed, holding my breath, but all praise to O the wizard, he saved me a callout, see what happens in 24hrs, but my wife likes my change in language (it's just over 1 yr old and had one repair already)

    Many thanks to O the Wizard. Pity I did not see this before I posted my problem. Done what was written and all is well. Thanks again.

This machine has a lot of bad reviews due to them over icing in the rear of the freezer,firstly try defrosting for 48 hrs as the ice is encased with polystyrene taking a long time to defrost,also apparently they have a valve that can be upgraded if you contact hotpoint,and lastly if it ever does run correctly then only fill the drawers so that the food is level (no more)with the top of drawer as this will reduce airflow in the frostfree section,good luck

The refrigerator is not cooling

Do you find that the freezer section is freezing up more too.
If you place you hand at the top of the fridge you should feel the cold air blowing through and also hear the fan kicking in to chill with door open. If freezer section is freezing up open freezer door press the door switch in and hold it in. you should hear the fan kick in. If not it could be frozen and all the channel too . you can take back panel off and remove the ice or switch it off and defrost it . Try this and let me know out come.

Both Lights flashing and fridge not getting cold

I turned the fridge and freezer off using the circular dials, I then turned the unit off at the mains. Left it for a few minutes and then turned the power back on. I then turned the circular dials to "max" and then depressed the super cool and super freeze buttons to turn this facility on. This time they came on normally (not flashing) and no alarm sounded. The fridge and freezer then started to get cold. Once the unit had been running for several hours I then turned the dials to the 3/4 mark and depressed the super cool and super freeze buttons again to turn them off. Over night the fridge and the freezer appear to be working properly so I hope that my problem is solved. Maybe the unit just needed to "settle" before being switched on?

With this model it suffers with the evaporator freezing up, try to defrost overnight with the doors open, restart the following day and it should start to work ok within 24hrs. Regards Advisor
