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

I recently purchased a used apt sized Sanyo fridge (freezer on top). The problem I'm having is the light comes on & motor sounds like it's running but it won't get cold. Neither fridge nor freezer...


Is there a light inside? If so, maybe, the light isn't going off, when the door is closed. Just food for thought. I'm not an expert with this equipment. Check the thermostat. Is it set correctly? Go all the way one way, and see, if it makes a difference, if not, go the direction. Good luck.

Fridge freezer not working properly, can hear it running lights on and fan in freezer is running constantly but its not getting cold


Possibly. I would always set one that has been on it's side upright for about 24 hours before plugging it in. You might try that. Hopefully it is not too late. I hope this helps.

Fridge not cooling


Sometimes the air duct bewteen the fridge and freezer becomes blocked with snowy ice what forms when the freezer has been running without an operative fan - solution switch the unit off with the doors open for 24hrs then clean close it up and switch it on - if it was snow problem will be gone - cheap and easy to give it a try

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?

Type hotpoint ff187e fridge section not cooling lights flashing


It is ice build up in the ducts in the fridge/Freezer section. If you switch off and let it defrost with doors open for 24hrs all will be OK. I have just paid £100 for a call out just to be told this solution to the problem which is something that should be in the inst. manual or told when reporting this fault to try first. One big con from Hotpiont.

Maytag MBB1954GES not cold. Fresh food area warm, motor not on. Freezer OK.


Check the freezer fan is running with the door switch pushd in by hand, check the back wall of the freezer for frosting if it's frosty check the defrost system eg defrost element, Defrost termination stat and defrost timer. If the freezers running perfect check the fridge difuser/damper and see if it's open this is the part that opens and closes the vent between the freezer and fridge to allow cold air into the fridge. The Damper is up the top left corner of the fridge. cheers.

Frigidaire 7.5 cu.ft. Top Freezer the fridge part doesn't cool; freezer is fine.


It should be under warranty, retry he is probably right, run for 24hrs and it should work ok, if you ever defrost you should turn off for 24hrs and leave the door open. Regards Advisor
