Question about Hotpoint FFA70 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

How can I unblock my Hotpoint FFA70 fridge freezer

The water is no longer going down the drain at the back of the salad bins. I've tried straw, electrical flex but they hit an obstruction at a depth not far short of the drainage tray. What could I try?

I have had the same problem and to solve it I had to turn the appliance off to allow it to defrost as the blockage was caused by the pipe freezing up.

Hotpoint RFA 60 Refrigerator drain problem


Well the only way to check it out completely is like you said going from inside your freezer and I like to pour water down the line to make sure it drains.

Take the back panel off inside your freezer and locate the opening of the drain. You will see the collection tray just under your coils and in the middle you will see the opening. Now if it is blocked by ice just take a couple tea spoons of table salt and pour on the opening. Ice will melt very fast and then the opening will clear and then take some water and pour down it.

If the opening is clear just pour water down and observe the drain pan under the unit and see if it comes in there.

This will work in most all cases of this type. You need a piece of copper wire, 14 guage, 12 to 16 inches. You can shortin it as you need to Turnoff the power to the fridge. Rap one end of the wire around the evaprorator heater and feed the othe end down the drain tube. This wire will heat up when the heater comes on and will supply heat down into the drain tube hopefully preventing the drain from freezing.

Fridge smells


The drain leads to a pan under the fridge that sits on coils and evaporates the condensate that drained out. you should be able to access the pan and remove it and clean. or you can just wait for it to evaporate and go away. (better off to clean) some warm water in a baster will help rinse out the line. Let me know if that worked or if you need help accessing the pan.

Water beneath my salad bin


if the drain is truly not blocked then the water will go down it. try poking a piece of thin wire down it to check, and have a look on the outside at the back - some models have a tray or tank where this water collects that may be full - else the fridge drain should be plumbed into a drain - check from the outside too. Also check if the fridge is truly level. The feet allow you to adjust this and see - sometimes a small change in angle can spoil the drainage characteristics of these machines (possibly even lean it backwards a little if it looks like this might help). the only other possibility is if the fridge drain is fixed into another drain, that another appliance or fixture is causing back pressure - if so you would be able to see bubbling into your fridge if you sat and watched while someone else ran all the sinks/toilets/washers/dishwashers etc around the house - in theory though when all these other items are not running then the water should still drain.
