Question about Hotpoint FFA60 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
Hello, I actually have a hotpoint FFA47X FRIDGE/FREEZER. Its about 18 mths old. A short while ago the warning bleep started to bleep constantly for days telling me freezer was too warm. I defrosted freezer with a hairdryer for the first time as it meant to be frost free and it took me over two hours. The fan was encased in ice and so too were all the foil elements in the casing at the top of freezer. Swithced it back on and it was fine for another month or so. Now the warning bleeps have started again, the freezer not working and iced up, and fridge not very cool either. The unit is stored between two larder units, though it has good ventilation back and top. i have pulled unit out from between the two units and away from the wall in the hope that better ventilation might cure it. I realise i need to defrost it again but what do you think the cause of ice build up could be? Door seals are fine, we dont open it often and dont store too much stuff inside either. Perhaps the fost free system broken? Is the water meant to escape through an outlet near the fan? I very much appreciate your expertise on this. Regards, Jo
There is a defrost fault - quite common with these hotpoint. fault could lie with the module or stats associated with defrost or possibly the heater itself. most probable is the module but impossible to localize by remote control. water drains away thro a hole in the centre of the tray underneath the evaporator
