Question about Hotpoint  16.6 Cu. Ft. Top-Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Refrigerator stopped after only having 18 months

I am so upset with my Hotpoint fridge. It was purchase in November of 2005 and it has stopped working already! The compressor would have been covered but...because it is the part that starts the compressor they will NOT fix it for me. I have MS and have to store my medication in the fridge, meds that cost more than the fridge, I am very lucky that I had left it at my parents home since my fridge stopped. How can it NOT be the compressor when it is the part that starts it to work?? I am so angry it isn't funny, I will NEVER purchase nother Hotpoint appliance and will tell all my family and friends to not get them either.

"part that starts the compressor" could be the thermostat or the compressor relay. most probably the thermostat. the 'stat is indeed nothing to do with the compressor and is only the switch that makes the compressor start. the part is reasonably cheap and easily replaced. hotpoint refrigeration is as good as any and i don't have a vested interest

I have a ffa90 futre fridge & bottom frezzer. the fridge is frezzing the food in the door & in the fridge. have tryed water in botles & they get ice on it .in the door the food frezzers so


Find where the supply air is coming into the fridge part. It comes from the freezer and could easily be supplying -18 air direct to the door. This would give you a 2 in the fridge but anything in the direct air path could freeze.

Hi, i have refrigerator kenmore models 795.7101 and display err FF. What can I do to fixe?


I have the same model fridge and the same thing happen to me. I purchased it from Sears June 2011. A Fridge that's 18 moths old SHOULD NOT have these problems. I did some research and there are a lot of people with the same problem and the Kenmore 795 model. I called Sears and they said since the 12 month "warrenty" expired, I'd have to purchase a Protection agreement which is $275.00 and that is good for a year. I think it's complete BS since the postings I've seen on this issue happen every 18 months... leaving you to fork out another $275.00. I will never buy another product from Sears again!
Let me know if the error code keeps coming on and keep a record of the time intervals between the error coming on. There needs to be a recall!!!

I AM VERY UPSET AND AT THE END OF MY ROPE. I PURCHASED A SANYO TV (42 INCH) JUNE 21, 2008. TODAY, NOVEMBER 26, 2009, I TURNED ON MY TV AND DOES IT NOT WORK. I CAN HEAR WHAT'S ON THE TV BUT CANNOT SEE...


Try shinning a flashlight into the screen to see if the picture is still visible or not. If its still there the back light is the problem.

My hotpoint ff187e fridge/freezer keeps bleeping and flashing how can i fix this? it is only 18 months old.


Turn the second knob at the top to off (freezer knob) turn the fridge freezer off. Then turn it back on. That may sort it. Or you may need to totally defrost the machine as there could be some ice blocking some vents. May need to remove the back panel of the freezer for this (inside).
