Rusty water melting from the drain pan or insulation. Check the condenser is clean, and the drain dan that sits on top of the compressor isn't split.

Bad smell from fridge (not mouldy food)?


There is no danger if there is a leak, but the refrigerator will quit cooling. I suspect perhaps you have a dead something underneath or behind the refrigerator. I hope this helps... but I also suspect you have cleared the problem by now.

Very bad smell coming from my Samsung refrigerator


most refrigerators have a small drainage hole leading from the inside rear of the compartment to an overflow container behind the unit, pull the unit away from the wall and check if the liquid in the container has become stagnant, if so simply clean it out and run a small amount of bleach down the hole to disinfect the tube.
hope this helps.

Hotpoint FZ175G red warning light comes on freezer still freezing after reset light comes on again after a couple of hours


Red light on for High Freezer Temperature Warning
or freezer not cooling, but fridge is and a lot of noise from compressor.
Also, fridge drain hole blocked, water in bottom of fridge.


This is a common fault in Hotpoint Fridge Freezers and can also happen if the door has been left open or has been a power cut.

1. Turn off fridge freezer, or at least turn down the freezer temp to minimum, though not ideal.
2. Open freezer door and remove all drawers.
3. Remove the back panel on the inside of the freezer. This is held in place with 4 screws, which might be 6mm hex head or star allen head. Pull the panel out.
4. Behind where the panel was, there is a cooling element for cooling, pipes, and below this a temperature sensor. If the fridge freezer is not switched off, then fold together a few layers of tinfoil and wrap around the sensor.
5. Use a hairdryer to slowly melt the ice. Melt it around areas where it appears to be hanging on, such as the corners of the cooling element or bolts, as well as any thin sections below the main block of ice around the cooling element, which will be supporting the main block. Use a plastic ice scraper to remove ice but not near pipes or sensor.
Warning: Be careful using electrics around water & melting ice & drips.
6. Below the cooling element, there is a drip channel & drain hole. If this hole is full of ice, pour a small amound of warm water down, leave for 10 seconds and pour a bit more until clear.
In the fridge, clear the drain hole in the same way.
Warning: Do not pour a lot of water down, as this water drains onto a tray above the hot compressor at the rear of the fridge freezer to be evaporated by the heat of the compressor and the tray will only hold a small amount.
7. When all ice is removed, dry all moisture. Put the shelves back. Close door. Turn on fridge freezer. Turn up the freezer temperature to your normal setting. Turn on fast freeze if available. After 1 hour, check with a thermometer. It should be cold enough after 1 or 2 hours.

How can I replace the seal for the lid?


no need to replace unless damaged. You should be able to pull the seal off the door and place it in the dishwasher or use the solution described below in a sink to clean it. If removal is impracticable then the recommended cleaner (on the door) is a spoonful of regular dish washing liquid + 1/4 C of Lysol (the real stuff- brown smells horrible) and a quart of very warn water....add to this about 1/8 C of household bleach..clean with a sponge/ rag and rinse. This will clean and totally disinfect the door/ seal. Also, remember that unless you have a true allergy to mold there is no proof that it will harm you, its around us every day. Ever taken a walk in the woods at daybreak or sunset- look at the specs flying around- they're mold at max!

No, there is no other problem, you cant remove the pan but you can place heaps of paper towel in it to soak up all feral liquid, be VERY CAREFUL, it is toxic and will make you sick, wash hands or wear gloves, once most of this is removed, pour neat bleach in the pan, about 2 cups and do your best to get it around the pan, leave it in there and it will evaporate off on its own. Nice smell once again. Russ

Smell of gas and fridge not working


If you are sure about the gas smell, it is due to a gas leak. It needs repairs. Take it to a repair center.

My hotpoint future fza34 is leaking from underneath


you need to get to the back of fridge and ul notice a tray full of water ontop of the compressor. remove tray and empty water out. when replacing v important to make sure it is sitting level on compressor again.

there is also an underlaying prob here, maybe alot of condensation on shelves also??

ensure doors are closing properly and saels are in good shape, also avoid putting warm food in fridge and make sure liquids are covered. this should stop tray filling with water and leaking

Your problem could be caused by a clogged drainage tube. even though you may have removed the ice it may still have a clog. my suggestion would be to take all of the contents out of your fridge and let it sit unplugged for atleast 24-48 hours with the doors open this will eliminate any left over ice that may be clogging your drain tube. if this dosent help then you may have a defrost heater problem, or possibly a defrost termination switch problem. as for the smell i know that vinegar works well for getting rid of odor. ther eis also a product you can purchase called fridge aid, it is a charcoal based air purifier and should work well.

Possibly something was spilled and it got to the door gasket. Clean the door gasket area with warm soapy water. In the door there is nothing critical to the system operation that should cause the condition you have.
